Scientific Notation Chemistry

2
**Scientific Notation Expresses numbers as a multiple of two factors:**

A number between 1- 10 10 raised to a power or exponent 6.23 x 10 23

3
Scientific Notation When numbers larger than 1 are expressed in scientific notation, the exponent is positive. 2.0 x 10 3 = 2000 When numbers smaller than 1 are expressed in scientific notation, the exponent is negative. 2.0 x = 0.002

4
**Scientific Notation Moving the decimal.**

The exponent just tells you how many times you had to move the decimal. Positive exponent, we move to the left. Negative exponent, we move to the right.

5
Practice Express the following in scientific notation: 700m 38 000m m m

**Adding and Subtracting Scientific Notation**

Chemistry A

10
**We just add 7.35 and 2.43, don’t worry about adding the exponents.**

Adding & Subtracting When we add or subtract with these numbers the first thing we must do is make sure the exponents are the same for both number. 7.35 x x10 2 We just add 7.35 and 2.43, don’t worry about adding the exponents. = 9.78 x10 2

11
Adding & Subtracting Must make exponents the same before you continue to add or subtract. 5.40 x x 10 2 We must move the decimal to make them the same. The decimals must be aligned 5.40 x 10 3 x 10 3 6.00 x 10 3

12
**If the exponents are not the same then we must make them match each other.**

We will match it to the first number if and only if the first number is between 1-10. 2.50 x x10 3 6.50 x 10 3 = .650 x10 4 2.50 x x10 4 3.15 x 10 4

13
**Practice 5 x 10 -5 + 2 x10 -5 7 x 10 -5 4 x 10 -12 + 1 x10 -12**

14
Subtracting Is basically the same thing, except we’re subtracting instead of adding. We still have to make sure that the exponents are the same.

15
9 x x10 2 2 x 10 2 7 x x10 8 3 x10 8 4.39 x 10 5 – 2.8 x10 4 4.11 x 10 5 5.36 x – 7.40 x10 -2 4.62 x 10 -1

16
**Multiplying & Dividing**

We multiply or divide the coefficients (decimal numbers) and add or subtract the exponents. 3.0 x x 2.0 x 10 2 = (3.0 x 2.0) x 10 (4+2) = 6.0 x 10 6
