# Mathematical Functions in Python | Set 2 (Logarithmic and Power Functions)

Numeric functions are discussed in set 1 below

Mathematical Functions in Python | Set 1 ( Numeric Functions)

Logarithmic and power functions are discussed in this set.

1. exp(a) :- This function returns the value of e raised to the power a (e**a) .

2. log(a, b) :- This function returns the logarithmic value of a with base b. If base is not mentioned, the computed value is of natural log.

 `# Python code to demonstrate the working of ` `# exp() and log() ` `  `  `# importing "math" for mathematical operations ` `import` `math ` `  `  `# returning the exp of 4 ` `print` `(``"The e**4 value is : "``, end``=``"") ` `print` `(math.exp(``4``)) ` `  `  `# returning the log of 2,3 ` `print` `(``"The value of log 2 with base 3 is : "``, end``=``"") ` `print` `(math.log(``2``,``3``)) `

Output:

```The e**4 value is : 54.598150033144236
The value of log 2 with base 3 is : 0.6309297535714574
```

3. log2(a) :- This function computes value of log a with base 2. This value is more accurate than the value of the function discussed above.

4. log10(a) :- This function computes value of log a with base 10. This value is more accurate than the value of the function discussed above.

 `# Python code to demonstrate the working of ` `# log2() and log10() ` `  `  `# importing "math" for mathematical operations ` `import` `math ` `  `  `# returning the log2 of 16 ` `print` `(``"The value of log2 of 16 is : "``, end``=``"") ` `print` `(math.log2(``16``)) ` `  `  `# returning the log10 of 10000 ` `print` `(``"The value of log10 of 10000 is : "``, end``=``"") ` `print` `(math.log10(``10000``)) `

Output:

```The value of log2 of 16 is : 4.0
The value of log10 of 10000 is : 4.0
```

5. pow(a, b) :- This function is used to compute value of a raised to the power b (a**b).

6. sqrt() :- This function returns the square root of the number.

 `# Python code to demonstrate the working of ` `# pow() and sqrt() ` `  `  `# importing "math" for mathematical operations ` `import` `math ` `  `  `# returning the value of 3**2 ` `print` `(``"The value of 3 to the power 2 is : "``, end``=``"") ` `print` `(math.``pow``(``3``,``2``)) ` `  `  `# returning the square root of 25 ` `print` `(``"The value of square root of 25 : "``, end``=``"") ` `print` `(math.sqrt(``25``)) `

Output:

```The value of 3 to the power 2 is : 9.0
The value of square root of 25 : 5.0
```
