Java.lang.Math.cbrt() Method

Advertisements


Description

The java.lang.Math.cbrt(double a) returns the cube root of a double value. For positive finite x, cbrt(-x) == -cbrt(x); that is, the cube root of a negative value is the negative of the cube root of that value's magnitude. Special cases:

  • If the argument is NaN, then the result is NaN.

  • If the argument is infinite, then the result is an infinity with the same sign as the argument.

  • If the argument is zero, then the result is a zero with the same sign as the argument.

The computed result must be within 1 ulp of the exact result.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Math.cbrt() method

public static double cbrt(double a)

Parameters

  • a -- a value.

Return Value

This method returns the cube root of a.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Math.cbrt() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class MathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // get two double numbers
      double x = 125;
      double y = 10;

      // print the cube roots of three numbers
      System.out.println("Math.cbrt(" + x + ")=" + Math.cbrt(x));
      System.out.println("Math.cbrt(" + y + ")=" + Math.cbrt(y));
      System.out.println("Math.cbrt(-27)=" + Math.cbrt(-27));

   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Math.cbrt(125)=5.0
Math.cbrt(10)=2.154434690031884
Math.cbrt(-27)=-3.0
