 ```I need the answer to the following: 2^1024 The full answer (correct to the exact number of decimal places) will help with an installation/work of art I'm currently finalising. I've tried Google's calculator and downloadable calculators for OS X but to no avail. Can anyone help? You will be 1) paid, and 2) given full credit in the documentation for the piece.``` Request for Question Clarification by denco-ga on 04 Jul 2004 11:57 PDT ```Howdy fehler-ga, Just so there are no mistakes. Your question's subject talks of square roots, but your question shows a number being taken to a power. So, do you want: - the square root of 1024 - 2 taken to the 1024th power - something totally different Thanks! denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher``` Clarification of Question by fehler-ga on 05 Jul 2004 00:03 PDT ```Sorry, I was a little hasty, what I am looking for is the answer to 2 taken to the 1024th power. Quite a large number I imagine. It's for a project here: http://www.fallt.com/imbecil Thanks.```

 ```fehler, To solve this problem, I used the wonderful (and free!) 5000 digit calculator for Windows by G F Cornwall. It is available for download from http://www.home52365.fsnet.co.uk/bcalc.htm The answer given for 2^1024 is the following 309 digit number: 179769313486231590772930519078902473361797697894230657273430081157732675805500963132708477322407536021120113879871393357658789768814416622492847430639474124377767893424865485276302219601246094119453082952085005768838150682342462881473913110540827237163350510684586298239947245938479716304835356329624224137216 This calculator was one of many found on the DMOZ Directory site at http://dmoz.org/Science/Math/Software/Calculators/ Google search query used: online calculator scientific digits```

 ```Google's calculator doesn't seem to accept 2^1024. 2^1023, however, is solved.```
