An example of a logical appeal is encouraging someone to quit smoking because of the noted health risks associated with smoking tobacco. Essentially, a logical appeal is used to convince someone a generally accepted truth is valid. Logical appeals are harder to dispute than other kinds of appeals, such as emotional appeals and ethical appeals, because they are a result of facts rather than feelings or opinions.
