How to calculate the value raised to a power with Arduino IDE

Introduction

In this post it will be seen how to calculate the value raised to a power. Basically this function takes a number(base) and it raises to another number(exponent). 

The function for calcultaing the value raised to a power using Arduino IDE is pow().  This function is used to raise a number to a certain exponent.

 

Function

pow(base, exponent)


Parameters

base: the number (float)

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


Example

float i=0;
long result;

void(setup){
  Serial.begin(9600L);
}

void(loop){
  Serial.println("Base 2: "); 
  for(i=0;i<50;i++){
    result=pow(2,i);
    Serial.println(result);
}
