Compute the log base 10 of numeric input.

log10(20)
ans =
    1.3010

Compute the log base 10 of symbolic input. The result is in terms of log.

syms x
f = x^2;
fLog10 = log10(f)
fLog10 =
log(x^2)/log(10)

Convert symbolic output to double by substituting for x with a number using subs, and then using double.

fLog10 = subs(fLog10,x,5);        % x is 5
fLog10 = double(fLog10)
fLog10 =
    1.3979
