Raised to the power column in pyspark can be accomplished using pow() function with argument column name followed by numeric value which is raised to the power. We will see Raised to power of column in pyspark with an example

- Raised to power n of the column in pyspark with example
- Square of the column in pyspark with example
- Cube of the column in pyspark with example
- Square root of the column in pyspark with example
- Cube root of the column in pyspark with example

**Syntax:**

*pow(col1,n)*

**col1** – Column name

**n **– Raised power

We will be using **df.**

**Square of the column in pyspark with example:**

Pow() Function takes the column name and 2 as argument which calculates the square of the column in pyspark

## square of the column in pyspark from pyspark.sql import Row from pyspark.sql.functions import pow, col df.select("*", pow(col("mathematics_score"), 2).alias("Math_score_square")).show()

In our example square of “mathematics_score” is calculated as shown below.

**Cube of the column in pyspark with example:**

Pow() Function takes the column name and 3 as argument which calculates the cube of the column in pyspark

## cube of the column in pyspark from pyspark.sql import Row from pyspark.sql.functions import pow, col df.select("*", pow(col("mathematics_score"), 3).alias("Math_score_cube")).show()

In our example cube of “mathematics_score” is calculated as shown below.

**Power of N to the column in pyspark with example:**

Pow() Function takes the column name and N as argument which calculates the N^{th }power of the column in pyspark

## Power of N to the column in pyspark from pyspark.sql import Row from pyspark.sql.functions import pow, col df.select("*", pow(col("mathematics_score"), 4).alias("Math_score_power")).show()

In our example power of 4 is raised to the column “mathematics_score” as shown below.

**Cube root of the column in pyspark with example:**

Pow() Function takes the column name and 1/3 as argument which calculates the cube root of the column in pyspark

## cube root of the column in pyspark from pyspark.sql import Row from pyspark.sql.functions import pow, col df.select("*", pow(col("mathematics_score"), 1/3).alias("Math_score_cuberoot")).show()

In our example cube root of “mathematics_score” is calculated as shown below.

**Square root of the column in pyspark with example:**

Pow() Function takes the column name and 1/2 as argument which calculates the square root of the column in pyspark

## square root of the column in pyspark from pyspark.sql import Row from pyspark.sql.functions import pow, col df.select("*", pow(col("mathematics_score"), 1/2).alias("Math_score_squareroot")).show()

In our example square root of “mathematics_score” is calculated as shown below.
