Exp Function

Returns e (the base of natural logarithms) raised to a power.


The number argument can be any valid numeric expression.


If the value of number exceeds 709.782712893, an error occurs. The constant e is approximately 2.718282.

Note   The Exp function complements the action of the Log function and is sometimes referred to as the antilogarithm.

The following example uses the Exp function to return e raised to a power:

Dim MyAngle, MyHSin   ' Define angle in radians.
MyAngle = 1.3   ' Calculate hyperbolic sine.
MyHSin = (Exp(MyAngle) - Exp(-1 * MyAngle)) / 2
