### How do I create exponents on the Sony Vaio keyboard?

re you allowed to just type x^y? As in x being the root and y is the exponent? If not, and if you're using Microsoft Word, type the number you want to do. Highlight the exponent and press Ctrl, Shift, and = at the same time. That should do the trick.

### How do i enter an exponent on the

It depends on the base of the power function.
For exponential function use [SHIFT][LN] (e^x) followed by the exponent value. If exponent is negative use the change sign +/- key before exponent.
For a general power, type in the base (number), then press the [Y^x] key followed by the exponent.
For a power of 10, use the [Exp] key. Careful here. For example to enter 1.6x10^(-19), type in 1.6, press the [Exp] key, then the change sign key +/- and the exponent. Press [=]
1 . 6 [Exp] +/- 19 [=]

### How to solve an equation with negative exponent

You probably want to calculate the numerical value of some mathematical expression with numbers raised to negative exponents.
Just enter the expression as you would with positive exponents Except that before entering the value of an exponent press the change sign key, marked (-), or +/- or (+/-). Do not confuse the change sign with the usual minus sign, which is usually displayed bigger then the change sign. Make sure that the (-) is displayed before the value of the exponent. Use parentheses if necessary.

### How to use 2 to power of 60?

To enter an exponent different from 2, you can use the general power key [^], the one above the [+] key and below the [CLEAR] key in the rightmost column of keys.
If exponent is negative or a fraction, enclose it between parentheses. The negative sign to use is the change sign [(-)] located between [. dot] and [ENTER] keys.
Example: 2 to power 60 is typed in as follows [2] [^] 60 [ENTER]. The result should be 1.152921505E18

### How do I do e^(0.2)? When I enter e^(0.2) I get Syn ERROR.

1. Press [2nd][LN] to activate the exponential function.
2. Type in the exponent 0.2
3. Press [EXE]

[2nd][LN]0.2[EXE] Result is 1.221452758

DO NOT PRESS [^] : this is the source of the syntax error.
You can put the exponent in parentheses.
If exponent is negative, press the change sign key (-) right after the e appears on screen.

[2nd][LN][(-)]0.2 [EXE] gives 0.8187307531

### Please explain which buttons to push on TI-36x solar calculator to find the pKa of benzoic acid. the Ka for benzoic acid is 6.5 X 10 to the -5th ? (Sorry I don't know how to type the exponents for you)

You need the [EE] key to enter powers of 10 exponents.
You need the change sign key [+/-] key.
You need the [LOG] key.

pKa: 6.5 [EE] [+/-] 5 [LOG] [+/-]
There are two change sign: The first (either before or after the exponent 5), the last is entered after you press the log key , so as to negate (make negative if result is positive, and make positive is result is negative) the value.
The result should be 4.1870866 or 4.19
