Java Long floatValue() Method

Java floatValue() method belongs to the Long class of the java.lang package. This method returns the floating equivalent of the Long after a widening primitive conversion(Conversion of a lower data type into a higher data type).

In short, this method is used to convert a Long object into a primitive float value.


public float floatValue()  


No parameter is passed in this method.


The float equivalent of the Long object that is created after conversion.

Example 1:

Here, using the floatValue() method, the Long object is converted into its float equivalent.

import java.lang.Long;

public class StudyTonight
    public static void main(String[] args) 
        //converting Long object into float
        Long x = 65L;
        float i = x.floatValue();
        Long y = 90L;  
        float d = y.floatValue();  


Example 2:

Here is a user-defined example where anyone using this code can put a value of his choice and get the equivalent float value.

import java.util.Scanner;  

public class StudyTonight
    public static void main(String[] args) 
            System.out.print("Enter the value to be converted : ");  
            Scanner sc = new Scanner(;  
            long i = sc.nextLong();  
            Long n = i ;  
            float val = n.floatValue();  //converting Long object into float
            System.out.println("Float Value is: " + val);  
        catch(Exception e)
            System.out.println("not a valid long"); 

Enter the value to be converted : 75
Float Value is: 75.0
Enter the value to be converted : 0x665
not a valid long
