Java.lang.Math.getExponent() Method

Advertisements


Description

The java.lang.Math.getExponent(float f) returns the unbiased exponent used in the representation of a float. Special cases:

  • If the argument is NaN or infinite, then the result is Float.MAX_EXPONENT + 1.

  • If the argument is zero or subnormal, then the result is Float.MIN_EXPONENT -1.

Declaration

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

public static int getExponent(float f)

Parameters

  • f -- a float value

Return Value

This method returns the unbiased exponent of the argument

Exception

  • NA

Example

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

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class MathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // get two float numbers
      float x = 60984.1f;
      float y = -497.99f;

      // print the unbiased exponent of them
      System.out.println("Math.getExponent(" + x + ")=" + Math.getExponent(x));
      System.out.println("Math.getExponent(" + y + ")=" + Math.getExponent(y));
      System.out.println("Math.getExponent(0f)=" + Math.getExponent(0f));


   }
}

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

Math.getExponent(60984.1f)=15
Math.getExponent(-497.99f)=8
Math.getExponent(0f)=-127
