# Python program to find power of a number using exponential operator

Python exponential operator example: Here, we are going to learn how to find power of a number using exponential operator using exponential (**) operator in Python?
Submitted by IncludeHelp, on April 12, 2019

Given two numbers a and b, we have to find a to the power b using exponential operator (**).

Example:

```    Input:
a = 10
b = 3

# calculating power using exponential oprator (**)
result = a**b
print(result)

Output:
1000
```

Finding power of integer values

```# python program to find the power of a number

a = 10
b = 3

# calculating power using exponential oprator (**)
result = a**b

print (a, " to the power of ", b, " is = ", result)
```

Output

```10  to the power of  3  is =  1000
```

Finding power of float values

```# python program to find the power of a number

a = 10.23
b = 3.2

# calculating power using exponential oprator (**)
result = a**b

print (a, " to the power of ", b, " is = ", result)
```

Output

```10.23  to the power of  3.2  is =  1704.5197114724524
```
