Precision of a number raised to a power

Hallo
I am new to Mathematica and I am thankful to any help regarding the following.
If I have something like a^b . The a is any arbitrary decimal number (let us say of precision double) the b are numbers from 1-10 (exact numbers without a point). 
What will be the precision of the above expression after raising a to the powers from 1-10.

Many thanks in advance
Sonya
