The pow() function in p5.js is used to calculate the power of a number to the given number. It is an efficient way of multiplying numbers by themselves (or their reciprocals) in large quantities.

Syntax

pow( n, e )

Parameters: The function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • n: This parameter stores the base of the exponential expression.
  • e: This parameter stores the power by which to raise the base.
  • Below program illustrates the pow() function in p5.js:

    Example: This example uses pow() function to calculate power of a number.




    function setup() {
      
        // Create Canvas of size 270*80  
        createCanvas(350, 80);
    }
       
    function draw() {
          
        // Set the background color
        background(220);
          
        // Initialize the parameter  
        let n = 3;
        let e = 4;
          
        // Call to pow() function
        let y = pow(n, e);
          
        // Set the size of text
        textSize(16);
          
        // Set the text color
        fill(color('red'));
          
        text("Given number is " + n + " and exponent is " 
                +  e + " ", 50, 30);
        text("Computed Number is : " + y, 50, 50);
    }
