What is the difference between "**" operator and "^"?

when I try to print 8^3 it gives an output of 11. But for my required answer, when I print 8**3 it gives the correct answer of 512. why?

 Why is it that 8^3 does not equal 512 as it is the correct answer?

When you use "^" operator, it is a bitwise operator, which does "bitwise exclusive or".
 

The power operator is "**", like 8**3 which equals to 512.
