JavaScript | Math.expm1() function

Math.expm1() is an inbuilt function in JavaScript which is used to get the value of ep-1, where p is any given number.
The number e is a mathematical constant having an approximate value equal to 2.718.
It was discovered by the Swiss mathematician Jacob Bernoulli.
This number is also called Euler’s number.
Syntax:

Math.expm1(p)

    Parameter: This function accepts a single parameter p, which is the parameter and it is any number.

    Returns: It return the value of ep-1, where p is any given number as parameter.

Example:

Input  :Math.expm1(0)
Output : 0

Explanation:
Here the value of parameter p is 0, So after putting the value 0 instead of p in ep-1
then its value becomes 0.

Let’s see JavaScript program:
Example

filter_none

code

<script>
  // Here different values is being taken as
  // as parameter of Math.expm1() function.
  document.write(Math.expm1(0) + "<br>");
  document.write(Math.expm1(1) + "<br>");
  document.write(Math.expm1(2) + "<br>");
  document.write(Math.expm1(-1) + "<br>");
  document.write(Math.expm1(5) + "<br>");
  document.write(Math.expm1(2.2) + "<br>");
  document.write(Math.expm1(-3.2) + "<br>");
</script>

    code

    <script>
      // Here alphabet parameter give error.
      document.write(Math.expm1(C));
    </script>

    chevron_right

    
    

    Output:

    Error: C is not defined

    code

    <script>
      // Here parameter as a string give NaN.
      document.write(Math.expm1("geeksforgeeks"));
    </script>

  • Application: Whenever we need to find the value of ep-1, where p is any given number that time we take the help of Math.expm1() function in JavaScript.

    code

    <script>
      // Here different numbers are being taken as parameter
      // from 0 to 9 for Math.expm1() function.
      for (i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
          console.log(Math.expm1(i)+ "<br>");
      }
    </script>
