What is the difference between log and log10 transformation in JMP?

Does someone know what the difference is between the log and log10 transformation in JMP? I cannot find any information on it... I discovered that they do not give the same result and I wonder what the reason is. 

 

Thanks a lot!

A common logarithm, Log10(), uses 10 as the base and a natural logarithm, Log(),  uses the number e (approximately 2.71828) as the base.

Thanks @txnelson , I guess I was confused because of the naming conventions - I'm used to the "ln" abbreviation for the natural logarithm.
