Learn how to use the exp function in Notion formulas.
Viewed another way, the
exp()function helps you find the argument (mathematical term) in a natural logarithm.
In other words,
as an argument (programming term) and returns
For reference, here are the named components of a logarithm:

exp(2) // Output: 7.389056098931
exp(5) // Output: 148.413159102577
e^5 // Output: 148.413159102577
exp(ln(5)) // Output: 5
ln(exp(5)) // Output 5
exp(), we can write a Notion formula that models continuous growth of a starting population by a certain percentage each year over a certain number of years.
prop("Starting Num") * exp(prop("Growth Rate") * prop("Periods"))
prop("Starting Num") *
prop("Growth Rate") *
As stated in the Euler’s Constant (e) article, continuous growth of a starting number
can be expressed as:
Here, we simply use the
prop("Growth Rate") * prop("Periods")as the argument.
We then multiply it by our starting number, passed via
