Question : 
What is the difference between Algorithm and Logarithm ? 
Answer : 
Algorithm is a noun
meaning some special process of solving a certain type of problem.

In mathematics and computer science,
an algorithm usually means a small procedure that solves a recurrent problem.

Algorithms can be
expressed in many kinds of notation, including natural languages, pseudocode, flowcharts, and programming languages.

Flowchart :

Whereas logarithm, again a noun, is the exponent of that power
of a fixed number, called the base, which equals a given number,
called the antilogarithm. ln 10 = 100, 10 is the base, 2 is
the logarithm and 100 the antilogarithm. 
Logarithms are useful in solving equations in which
exponents are unknown. They have simple derivatives, so they are often used in the solution of integrals.
