Raise x to the power y

Header File

Defined in <SDL3/SDL_stdinc.h>


float SDL_powf(float x, float y);

Function Parameters

float x the base.
float y the exponent.

Return Value

(float) Returns x raised to the power y.


Domain: -INF <= x <= INF, -INF <= y <= INF

Range: -INF <= z <= INF

If y is the base of the natural logarithm (e), consider using SDL_exp instead.

This function operates on single-precision floating point values, use SDL_powf for double-precision floats.

This function may use a different approximation across different versions, platforms and configurations. i.e, it can return a different value given the same input on different machines or operating systems, or if SDL is updated.

Thread Safety

It is safe to call this function from any thread.


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
