JavaScript | dataView.getFloat32()

The dataView.getFloat32() is an inbuilt function in dataView which is used to get a 32-bit float at the specified location i.e, at byte offset from the start of the dataView. Range of 32-bit floating point number is form -3.4E+38 to +3.4E+38
Syntax:

dataView.getFloat32(byteOffset)

Parameters: It has parameter byteOffset which is offset in byte and it says where to read the data from the beginning(start) of the view .
Return value: It returns 32-bit signed float number.

    // Creating buffer with size in byte
    var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
    // Creating a view
    var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
    // put the data 56.34 at slot 1
    dataview1.setFloat32(1, 56.34);
    document.write(dataview1.getFloat32(1) + "<br>");
  
</script>

Code #2:
Not only float value but also a math function like Math.PI can be taken as the parameter of the function.
