Log vs Ln

In the constants and equations sheet, there is an equation that simplifies the scalar quantity of ln(Q). However, it changes the ln to log. Can you do this? This seems fundamentally different?

Oh apologies, I realized the simplification is different so the values probably somehow cancel out. Follow up question, how was this derivation solved?

I'm not exactly sure how everything cancels out exactly, but I believe I can confirm from the book that there are some simplifications that can be done in order for log(Q) to be used rather than ln(Q) at the end of the equation.
