Issue Details

I am currently implementing some formulae and one requires the cube root of an integer. I have searched around and could only find the square root function. Is there any way to find the cube root of a number in LabVIEW?


LabVIEW has a generic root function. It's provided in Functions Palette » Mathematics » Elementary » Exponential » x^(1/y). Another way to find it is opening the the Quick Drop by pressing Ctrl+Space and then typing  Y-th Root of X.


Additional Information

A more general suggestion is to use Quick Drop to find items in the Controls and Functions Palettes you don't know. Open Quick Drop and type e.g. root, to narrow down a solution to the issue described above. In this case the forth element in the result list is Y-th Root of X, which you might recognize as the function you need.
