Below is an example of the Number toExponential() Method.

Example 1:

## Javascript

 ``

Output:

`Output :2.1213e+2`

Example 2: Passing a number as an argument in the toExponential() method. If a number is passed as an argument to the toExponential() method then it represents the number of digits after the decimal point.

## Javascript

 ``

Output:

`2.13e+0`

Example 3: Passing no parameter in the toExponential() method. The below program illustrates this.

## Javascript

 ``

Exceptions:

1. Range Error: This exception is thrown when the value parameter passed is too small or too large. Values between 0 and 20, inclusive, will not cause a RangeError. If you want to pass larger or smaller values than specified by this range then you have to accordingly implement the toExponential() method.
2. Type Error: This exception is thrown when the toFixed() method is invoked on an object that is not of type number.
