Finding the Base-e Exponential of Given Number in Golang

• Last Updated : 01 Apr, 2020

Go language provides inbuilt support for basic constants and mathematical functions to perform operations on the numbers with the help of the math package. You are allowed to find base-e exponential, i.e., e**a of the specified number with the help of Exp() function provided by the math package. So, you need to add a math package in your program with the help of the import keyword to access the Exp() function.

Syntax:

func Exp(a float64) float64
• If you pass +Inf in this function, then this function will return +Inf.
• In this function, very large values overflow to 0 or +Inf and very small values underflow to 1.
• If you pass NaN in this function, then this function will return NaN.

Example 1:

 // Golang program to illustrate how to// find exponential of the given number  package main  import (    "fmt"    "math")  // Main functionfunc main() {      // Finding base-e exponential    // of the given number    // Using Exp() function    res_1 := math.Exp(3)    res_2 := math.Exp(1)    res_3 := math.Exp(math.Inf(1))    res_4 := math.Exp(math.NaN())      // Displaying the result    fmt.Printf("Result 1: %.1f", res_1)    fmt.Printf("\nResult 2: %.1f", res_2)    fmt.Printf("\nResult 3: %.1f", res_3)    fmt.Printf("\nResult 4: %.1f", res_4)  }

Output:

Result 1: 20.1
Result 2: 2.7
Result 3: +Inf
Result 4: NaN

Example 2:

 // Golang program to illustrate how to// find exponential of the given number  package main  import (    "fmt"    "math")  // Main functionfunc main() {      // Finding base-e exponential    // Using Exp() function    nvalue_1 := math.Exp(2)    nvalue_2 := math.Exp(3)    res := nvalue_1 + nvalue_2    fmt.Printf("%.1f + %.1f = %.1f",            nvalue_1, nvalue_2, res)  }

Output:

7.4 + 20.1 = 27.5
