Ah ha - I see where I was going wrong.

I was reading "log" as "log to the base 10", but it is actually "log to the base e, or natural log". With that understood, the 2 equations yield very similar results. Here they both are in MS Excel, with a range of values:



With amplitudes of 0.50, the equations evaluate to -6.021 and -6.000 respectively, so the second equations looks the better of the two.
