This equation raises 10 to the power of the input value.

# Usage

Because we most frequently work in a ten-based numeric system, a common sizing characterization is to compare metrics with their apporximate power of ten.  We also use scientific notation to describe numbers of large size.  For example, 1E25 means 1 * 10^25, which in turn is 1 * 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,0000 (that's a 1 followed by 25 zeroes).

This equation will produce the following numbers in sequence when you enter successive inputs of 1,2,3,4,5 : 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000.
