Welcome to Exponents Calculator

Caculate Exponents, free online calculator for easy calculations, see below for examples and use cases.


Example: 25 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 32




Exponent, refers to number of times a number is multiplied by itself. Its also refered as the power of the number.

Exponents Examples

Example: Calculate 53 ?
The trick here is to just multiply, 5 with itself 3 times, 5 x 5 x 5 = 125

or, the same can be written as, Calculate 5 to the power of 3 ?


Real World Use Cases of Exponents

Usually, people dont use exponents on their day to day calculation except mathmatician or other professionals. Exponents can really be helpful in representing a large or small value elegantely.

Use Case 1: A Terabyte = 1099511627776 bytes can be written as 10244, which is more readable and understandable.

Terabyte represented in Exponential Form Terabyte represented in Exponential Form

Another very important use case of exponents is in calculating Exponential Growth of something.

Use Case 2:Scientist's, Microbiologist's and other professionals use exponents to calculate exponential growth. Say, if a Bacteria grows into 100 Bacteria in 1 minute. How many Bacteria will be present in 10 minutes ?

Exponents Example - Showing Exponential Growth of Bacteria in 10 minutes Exponents example showing exponential growth of bacteria in 10 minutes

Wow, the numeber is huge, the Bacteria grows very fast, if it was not for exponents we wouldn't be effectively & quickly be able to execute these calculations.

Use Case 3:Exponents are also leveraged in the Compound Interest Calculations. Where the money grows exponentionally after a period of time, as you saw in the bacteria example above, exponantial growth is a monster in itself, Warren Buffet world one of the best investors used compounding to buid most of his wealth.
