The main aim of this paper is to investigate the numerical solution of first kind integral equation of logarithmic kernel when using spectral method. Our approach consists of limiting the boundary to the unit interval and specify a logarithmic kernel. The behavior of the solution on the unit interval was analyzed and the advantages and disadvantages of this approach was shown.
