2 easy ones


I'm moving and my office is all in boxes so I have no access to the help files.

First what is the syntax for the natural log function in VB and second how do I raise a variable to a power. For example X raised to the power of 3.


Thanks

'To raise a variable to a power use the ^ for the exponent
x = y^3


Log Function
------------
Returns a Double specifying the natural logarithm of a number.

Syntax

Log(number)

The required numberargument is aDouble or any validnumeric expression greater than zero.

Remarks

The natural logarithm is the logarithm to the base e. Theconstant e is approximately 2.718282.

You can calculate base-n logarithms for any number x by dividing the natural logarithm of x by the natural logarithm of n as follows:

Logn(x) = Log(x) / Log(n)

The following example illustrates a custom Function that calculates base-10 logarithms:

Static Function Log10(X)
   Log10 = Log(X) / Log(10#)
End Function




Exp Function
------------
Returns a Double specifying e (the base of natural logarithms) raised to a power.

Syntax

Exp(number)

The required numberargument is aDouble or any validnumeric expression.

Remarks

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

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