Java.lang.StrictMath.getExponent() Method


Advertisements


Description

The java.lang.StrictMath.getExponent(float f) method returns the unbiased exponent used in the representation of a float.It include some 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.StrictMath.getExponent() method

public static int getExponent(float f)

Parameters

f − This is the float value.

Return Value

This method returns the unbiased exponent used in the representation of a float.

Exception

NA

Example

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

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class StrictMathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      float f1 = 32 , f2 = 1024;
   
      // returns the unbiased exponent used in the representation of a float
      double exponentValue = StrictMath.getExponent(f1);
      System.out.println("Exponent value of " + f1 + " = " + exponentValue);

      exponentValue = StrictMath.getExponent(f2);
      System.out.println("Exponent value of " + f2 + " = " + exponentValue);
   }
}

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

Exponent value of 32.0 = 5.0
Exponent value of 1024.0 = 10.0
