To multiply like (with same base) exponential quantities, add the exponents. In the language of algebra the rule is am x an  = am+n

Exponents - RF Cafe

 

AII-1

To divide exponential quantities, subtract the exponents. In the language of algebra the rule is

*Generally used with electrical quantities.

To raise an exponential quantity to a power, multiply the exponents. In the language of algebra

(xm)n  = xmn.

Any number (except zero) raised to the zero power is one. In the language of algebra xO  = 1

Any base with a negative exponent is equal to 1 divided by the base with an equal positive exponent. In the language of algebra x-a  = 1/xa

To raise a product to a power, raise each factor of the product to that power.

 

AII-2

To find the nth root of an exponential quantity, divide the exponent by the index of the root. Thus, the nth root of am = am/n.

Kirt Blattenberger,

BSEE | KB3UON

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
