EXP

Formulas / EXP
Calculate the value of e raised to the power of a number.
EXP(number)
  • number - required argument that is the exponent applied to the base e

Examples

  • =EXP(1)

    The EXP function is used to calculate the number e raised to a power. For example, the formula will return the approximate value of e, which is approximately 2.71828183.

  • =EXP(2)

    This function can also be used to calculate the base of the natural logarithm raised to a power. For example, this function will return the value of e raised to the power of 2, which is approximately 7.3890561.

Summary

The EXP function is used to perform exponentiation, with the number argument as the exponent applied to the base e. It requires one argument to be provided.

  • The constant e is a numeric constant that relates to exponential growth and decay and its approximate value is 2.718.
  • The EXP function is the inverse of the logarithm function, and it is used to find the value of e raised to the power of a number.
  • The EXP function models exponential growth, and its outputs are proportional to the change of the function.
