Python math.exp() – Exponential Function

Python math.exp()

math.exp(x) function returns the value of e raised to the power of x, where e is the base of natural logarithm.

exp(x) = e^x

Syntax

The syntax to call exp() function is

math.exp(x)

where

ParameterRequiredDescription
xYesA numeric value.

Examples

In the following example, we find the exponential power of 2, using exp() function of math module.

Python Program

import math

x = 2
result = math.exp(x)
print('exp(x) :', result)
Run

Output

exp(x) : 7.38905609893065

Now, let us find the exponential power of a negative number.

Python Program

import math

x = -2
result = math.exp(x)
print('exp(x) :', result)
Run

Output

exp(x) : 0.1353352832366127
