What is a Functional Exponent?


A Functional Exponent is a function in the form of f(x) = ax, where x is a variable and a is a constant, and it is known as the base of the function and should be greater than 0. Functional exponent is also called exponential function.

Forms of Functional Exponent

  • f(x) = ax
  • f(x) = bax , where b is also a constant
  • f(x) = ex
  • f(x) = peqx , where p is also a constant

Examples of Functional Exponent

The most common example of the functional exponent is ex, where the value of e is 2.718. Some other examples are as follows:-

  • 5e15x
  • (1/2)x
  • 7(8)-0.7x, etc.

Properties of Functional Exponent

  • a0 = 1
  • (am)n = am x n
  • am x an = a(m + n)
  • am / an = a(m – n)
  • (a x b)m = am x bm
  • (a / b)m = am / bm
  • a-m = 1/a

Relation between Functional Exponent and Logarithmic Functions

If there is any functional exponent that is in the form of:-

px = b

Then, it can be written as:-

log p b = x

So, the relation between Functional Exponent and Logarithmic Functions is:-

px = b => log p b = x

Some Graphs of Functional Exponent

1. Graph of 5x

Let, f(x) = 5x . So, some values of f(x) will be-

values of 5x in Functional Exponent

So, the Graph of 5x will be:-

2. Graph for (1/2)x

Let f(x) = (1/2)x. So, some values of f(x) will be-

values of (1/2)x in exponential functions

So, the Graph of (1/2)x will be:-

graph of (1/2)x in exponential functions

3. Graph of ex

Let f(x) = ex. So, some values of f(x) will be-

values of ex in functional exponents

Value of e = 2.718

So, the graphs of the ex will be-

Derivative of Functional Exponent or Exponential Function

  • d/dx (ex) = ex
  • d/dx (ax) = ax log a

Integration of Functional Exponents

  • ∫ ex dx = ex + C
  • ∫ ax dx = (ax / log a) + C

Where C is a constant.

Series Expansion of ex

series of ex in exponential functions

So, What is a functional exponent? The answer is functional exponent is the same as the exponential functions that we see in Mathematics, it’s just that we are calling exponential functions a functional exponent. We have seen most of the required things anyone needs to know about functional exponents. We hope this article on the Exponetinial Function Helps you.
