In Python, the easiest way we can find the cube root of a number is to use the **pow()** function from the Python math module.

```
import math
cube_root_of_10 = math.pow(10,1/3)
```

You can also use the built in ****** operator to find the cube root of a number.

`cube_root_of_10 = 10**(1/3)`

The Python math module has many powerful functions which make performing certain calculations in Python very easy.

One such calculation which is very easy to perform in Python is finding the cube root of a number.

The pow() function from the Python math module also lets us compute cube roots.

The **pow()** function takes two numbers as input, the first number is the base and the second number is the exponent. The first number must be positive, but the second number can be negative.

For a cube root, we pass “1/3” to the second parameter in the **pow()** function.

Below are some examples of how to use the **pow()** function to find cube roots.

```
import math
print(math.pow(4, 1/3))
print(math.pow(9, 1/3))
print(math.pow(13, 1/3))
print(math.pow(90, 1/3))
print(math.pow(2182, 1/3))
#Output:
1.5874010519681994
2.080083823051904
2.3513346877207573
4.481404746557164
12.970346612351785
```

The Python pow() function can also be useful if you want to find the square root of a number or the nth root of a number in Python.

## Finding the Cube Root of a Number with the ** Operator in Python

We can also use the built in ****** to perform exponentiation in Python. To find a cube root with the ****** operator, we just put “(1/3)” after ******.

Unlike the **pow()** function, we can find the cube root of negative numbers with the ****** operator.

Below are some examples of how to use the Python built in ****** operator to find cube roots.

```
import math
print(4**(1/3))
print(9**(1/3))
print(-13**(1/3))
print(90**(1/3))
print(-2182**(1/3))
#Output:
1.5874010519681994
2.080083823051904
