Find exponential using pow method of Math class in Java

Java Match pow method example shows how to find the exponential number using the pow method of the Java Math class.

How to find exponential value in Java using the pow method?

Use the pow static method of the Java Math class to find an exponential number.

Where x is the base value and y is the exponent.

This method returns the value of the base raised to the power of the exponent.

Output

Below given table shows some of the special case base and exponent values and their respective results.

Base Exponent Result
Any 0 or -0 1.0
Any 1.0 Same as base value
Any NaN NaN
NaN Non Zero NaN
abs(base) > 1 Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
abs(base) < 1 Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
abs(base) > 1 Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY 0
abs(base) < 1 Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY 0
1 Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY or

Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY

NaN
0 >0 0
Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY < 0 0
0 < 0 Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY > 0 Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
0 > 0 and != finite odd integer 0
Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY < 0 and != finite odd integer 0
-0 positive finite odd integer -0
Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY negative finite odd integer -0
-0 < 0 and != finite odd integer Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY > 0 and != finite odd integer Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
-0 negative finite odd integer Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY
Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY positive finite odd integer Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY
