# How to do an exponential calculation of numbers in a range of cells in Excel

Although there are formulas and tools for performing simple functions such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and so on. in Excel, exponential calculations could be a little complicated. There is no built-in tool for performing an exponential calculation in Microsoft Excel. Some formulas should therefore be used.

### Perform an exponential calculation of numbers in a range of cells in Excel

Exponential calculations could be done using the Power function or the ^ function. Both are easy to use. We will examine the following topics:

- How to do an exponential calculation on a number is a cell in Excel using the Power function
- How to make an exponential calculation of numbers in a range of cells in Excel using the Power function
- How to do an exponential calculation on a number is a cell in Excel using the operator ^
- How to make an exponential calculation of numbers in a range of cells in Excel with the help of the operator ^

**1) Perform an exponential calculation on a number is a cell in Excel using the Power function**

We can calculate the exponential value of a number in a particular cell using the Power function. The formula for the Power function is as follows:

=Power (, | )

Or

Please note that there is a space after the decimal point in the formula.

For example. If we need to find the exponential value at power 2 for a number in cell A3, the formula becomes:

=Power (A3, 2)

Enter the formula in the cell on which you want to display the exponential value. Suppose the cell in which we want the value in cell C3. Press Enter and the exponential value will be displayed in cell C3.

**2) Perform an exponential calculation of numbers in a range of cells in Excel using the Power function**

In future examples, we will use the copy handle to populate the cell range. The mirroring handle is a smart option in Excel and can reduce a formula to a range of cells. This handle recognizes a pattern and reproduces it with the cells. If a formula is used in a particular cell, the fill handle includes the intent and fills the remaining cells in the same way.

If you have a range of cells arranged in a column and want to find the exponential value of the numbers in this range, simply expand the exponential formula.

For example. Suppose you need the exponential values at power 2 of the numbers arranged in cells from A3 to A8 in row C, click on C3 and enter the formula that is mentioned above:

=Power (A3, 2)

Click anywhere outside the cell, then return to it. This will highlight the possibility of selecting more cells. Pull the formula down to C8.

Click anywhere outside the column to display the exponential value of the range in column C.

**3) Perform an exponential calculation on a number is a cell in Excel with the help of the operator ^**

The operator ^ further facilitates the calculation of the exponential value of a number. The formula for using the operator ^ is as follows:

=^ |

For example. As with the Power function, if we need to find the exponential value of power 2 for a number in cell A3, the formula becomes:

= A1^3

Enter the formula in the cell on which you want to display the exponential value. In this example, we could consider that the cell is C3. Enter the formula in cell C3 and press Enter to get the desired result.

**4) Perform an exponential calculation of numbers in a range of cells in Excel with the help of the operator ^**

To calculate the exponential value of numbers in a range of cells, simply unpack the formula in the cells in the same way as for the Power function.

For example. If the numbers for which you need the exponential value are in cells A3 to A8 and you need exponential values in column C of cell C3 to C8, enter the formula in cell C3, click n & # 39 anywhere outside the cell, then back to C3. Finally, expand the formula from cell C3 to cell C8 to display all values.

In future examples, we will use the copy handle to populate the cell range. The mirroring handle is a smart option in Excel and can reduce a formula to a range of cells. This handle recognizes a pattern and reproduces it with the cells. If a formula is used in a particular cell, the fill handle includes the intent and fills the remaining cells in the same way.
