# CURVE:EXPONENT

Exponent curve with one independent variable. Input for a exponent curve consists of the curve name, the 3 coefficients, and the maximum and minimum valid independent variable values. Optional inputs for curve minimum and maximum may be used to limit the output of the performance curve. curve = C1 + C2*x**C3 The independent variable x is raised to the C3 power, multiplied by C2, and C1 is added to the result.
