Scientific Notation A short-hand way of writing large numbers without
writing all of the zeros.

The Distance From the Sun to the Earth
93,000,000 miles

Step 1 93,000,000 = 9.3000000 Move decimal left
Leave only one significant number in front of the decimal 93,000,000 =

Step 2 Write number without zeros 93,000,000 = 9.3

Step 3 7 93,000,000 = 9.3 x 10 Count how many places you moved decimal
Make that your power of ten The power of ten is the letter āEā (exponential) for your calculators. 93,000,000 = 9.3 x 10 7

The power of ten is 7 because the decimal moved 7 places. 7
93,000,000 = 9.3 x 10 7

93,000, Standard Form 9.3 x Scientific Notation 4567 x Scientific Notation Standard Form

What if it has a decimal? .000,000,043 --- Standard Form
Move the decimal to the right after the first significant (not a zero) number. .000,000, Standard Form 4.3 x Scientific Notation

Practice Problems Write in scientific notation or standard form.
1.) 9.85 x 10-4? = 2.) 64,100,000,000 = 3.) x 10-6 = 4.) 431,200,000 = 5.) .000,0496= .000,985 6.41 x1010 .000,00279 4.31 x 108 4.96 x 10-5

On these, decide where the decimal will be moved. 734,000,000 = ______ x 108 .000,000,000,870 = ______x 10-10 90,000,000,000 = _____ x 1010 Answers 7.34 x 108 2) x 10-10 3) 9.0 x 1010

Complete Practice Problems
Write in scientific notation . 50,000 7,200,000 .000,000,802 Answers 1) 5.0 x 104 2) 7.2 x 106 3) 8.02 x 10-7

Scientific Notation to Standard Form
Move the decimal to the right 3.4 x 105 in scientific notation move the decimal ---> 340,000 in standard form

Move the decimal to the right.
Write in Standard Form Move the decimal to the right. 6.27 x 106 9.01 x 104 4.603 x 108 9.94 x 102 6,270,000 90,100 460,300,000 994

Write in Scientific Notation
Move the decimal to the left. 3.89 x 10-7 3.872 x 10-6 8.940 x 10-3 4.931 x 10-3 x 10-4 .000,000,389 .000,003,872 .00894

1. What is this number in standard form? 6.73 x 10-6
6,730,000 673,000

2. When the exponent is positive you move the decimal to the:
Left Right Top bottom

3. What does your calculator use to designate as a power of ten for scientific notation
10 P G E

4. Why is scientific notation important when dealing with astronomy?
They want to They are really big numbers and they are lazy Planets and stars are really far away so using scientific notation makes it easier to record the numbers It helps with Inverse Square Law
