Euler's number - derive 'e' using Java

//deriving 'e' or Euler's number. The equivalent would be (1+1/n)^n on a spreadsheet or using LaTex.

public class MathHell5 {

public static void main(String[] args) {
for (double d = 0; d <= 1000; d++) {
System.out.println(" ");
System.out.println(Math.pow((1+1/d),d));
}
}
}
//pow(double a, double b)
//Returns the value of the first argument raised to the power of the second argument.
