No. A negative integer raised to the third power will yield a negative number that is less than the integer. Only whole numbers (positive integers greater than or equal to 1) have the property where that integer raised to the third power is greater than or equal to the integer.

Is apparent power greater than true power?

Apparent power is measured in volt amperes, true power is measured in watts. Apparent power includes both real (or true power) and reactive power. So yes, if you are looking at both the apparent power and true power for a specific load, the apparent power will be greater than or (if the load is purely resistive) equal to the true power.AnswerApparent power will always be greater than true power except at unity power factor, when the two are equal.

No. If the cardinality of a finite set is N, then that of its power set is 2N. These cannot be equal for any non-negative integer N.

Is the number 30 a power of 10 explain?

The answer depends on the level of mathematics you are at.If you define x = log(30) to the base 10 = approx 1.4771, then 10^x = 30 and so 30 IS a power of 10.If you are concerned only with integer powers, then the answer is NO, 10^1 = 10 and 10^2 = 100 and the power function is monotonic continuous. There is no integer between 1 and 2 and therefore there cannot be an integer power of 10 which is equal to 30.
