Ordinary numbers not a problem Science has very, very big numbers and very, very tiny numbers Scientific notation allows the use of ordinary numbers with a scientific notation that expands our range of describing numbers, both large and small numbers. 2 93x10 6 miles 93,000,000 Miles Away

3
10 raised to an exponent gives us the option of very big and very tiny numbers. For big numbers, the exponent is (+ )and for tiny numbers it is (-). This tells us how many decimal places are taken up by the exponent Another method is to use text to describe a number. 3 347,000 347x10 3 347 kilo (spoken) 347 k (written)

4
10 1 = 10 = ten: add 1 place 10 2 = 100 = one-hundred: add 2 10 3 = 1000 = one-thousand: add 3 10 4 = 10,000 = ten-thousand: add 4 A number of 5.36(000) x 10 5 is 536,000 Five (5) decimal places moved to the right is the same number as the exponent 4

5
Try this: What is the number: 8.57 x 10 4 = ? What in exponent form is: 9,000,000,000 =? 5

6
What is the number: 8.57 x 10 4 = ? Answer: 85,700 : move decimal 4 places to the right What in exponent form is: 9,000,000,000 =? Answer: The 9 decimals are replaced by the exponent: 9x10 9 6

7
Kilo = 1 thousand, multiply by 1000 which is 10 3. Mega = 1 million, multiply by 1,000,000 or 10 6. 7

The number 54,700 calories is how many kilocalories? Answer: 54.7 kilo calories: 3 places ▪ Also, 54.7x10 3 cal The number 5,470,000 joules is how many megajoules? Answer: 5.47 megajoules : 6 places ▪ Also, 5.47x 10 6 cal 8

Small numbers needed to describe atomic level parameters, and phenomena, ex. waves, light Atomic diameters approximately 10 -10 m, nucleus is about 10 -15 m Meter stick smallest dimension is a millimeter,.001m, or 10 -3 m Wavelength of red light is about 650 nm, nano meters, 650x10 -9 m 10.00000000015

11
Minus exponent: 10 -6 Exponent is -6, which means move the decimal 6 places to the left when converting to the actual number, or to the right when converting to a negative exponent. Example:.00347 m is 3.47x10 -3 m or 3.47 millimeters (text based) .00000347 m is 3.47x10 -6 m or 3.47 micrometers 11

16 Let’s say you have measured the diameter of a right circular cylinder and it is 2.45 cm. You want to know the area. π= 3.14 A= π r 2 = 3.14x.01225 2 =.000471196 m 2 Why not report this number instead of a 3 significant figure answer of.000471 ?

17
17 A rod measures 5.54 cm. Convert this to m. Answer:.0554 m Some powder has a mass of 34.8 mg convert this to grams and also kg. Answer.0348 grams Answer.0000348 kg

18
18 You may convert units from to MKS and vice versa. Many measurements are made in English units, and must be converted to MKS to use the formulas properly.

20 A car is moving at 35 miles per hour, and speeds up to 52 miles per hour. What is the increase in m/s ? 35miles/hr x.447 m/s/ mile/hour = 15.65 m/s and 52 miles/hr x.447 m/s mile/hour = 23.24 m/s. Thus, the increase is: 23.24 -15.65 = 7.594 m/s

21
21 1 gram =.001 kg 1 m = 3.28 feet 1 mile = 1609 m 1 cm =.01 m 1 mm =.001 m 1 m/s = 2.24 miles/hr 1 miles/hour =.447 m/s 1 N =.225 lbs 1 lb = 4.45 N 1 hour = 3600 s 1 minute = 60 s 1 day = 24 hours 1000 g= 1 Kilogram 1 Mile= 5280 feet
