pow()

[Math]

Description

Calculates the value of a number raised to a power. pow() can be used to raise a number to a fractional power. This is useful for generating exponential mapping of values or curves.

Syntax

pow(base, exponent)

Parameters

base: the number (float)

exponent: the power to which the base is raised (float)

Returns

The result of the exponentiation (double)

Example Code

Calculate the value of x raised to the power of y:

z = pow(x, y);

See the (fscale) sketch for a more complex example of the use of pow().
