The java.lang.Math.getExponent() is a built-in math function which returns the unbiased exponent used in the representation of a float.

  • If the argument is NaN or infinite, then the result is Float.MAX_EXPONENT + 1.
  • If the argument is zero or subnormal, then the result is Float.MIN_EXPONENT -1.

Syntax:

public static int getExponent(float val)
Parameter:
val - a float value

Returns:
The method returns the unbiased exponent of the argument.

Example: To show working of java.lang.Math.getExponent() function




// Java program to demonstrate working
// of java.lang.Math.getExponent() method
import java.lang.Math;
  
class Gfg {
  
    // driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        float x = 7689.1f;
        float y = -794.99f;
  
        // print the unbiased exponent of them
        System.out.println(Math.getExponent(x));
        System.out.println(Math.getExponent(y));
  
        // print the unbiased exponent of 0
        System.out.println(Math.getExponent(0));
    }
}

Output:
