Metric notation

Bio Medical Tech course 1

Coefficient number the precedes the multiplication sign in a powers of ten equation. If no number is used in this position, the coefficient is 1
Base number is the number the coefficient is being multiplied by.
Exponent indicates how many times the base number is mutiplied by itself.
When does the exponent increase? the exponent increases by 1 for each place the decimal point moves to the left.
When does the exponent decrease? the exponent decreases by 1 for each place the decimal point moves to the right.
What is a unit? 1=10^1
What is a kilo=k? 1,000=10^3
What is a Mega=M? 1,000,000=10^6
What is a Giga=G? 1,000,000,000=10^9
What is a mili=m? 0.001=10^-3
What is a micro=u? 0.000001=10^-6
What is a nano=n? 0.000000001=10^-9
What is a pica=p? 0.000000000001=10^-12
What is the basic rule for adding or subtracting with exponent values? Exponents must be the same 2x10^3 + 4x10^3
What is the rule for multiplying exponents? Add the expononent values and then multiply by the numerical coefficients. 3x10^5 x 2x10^2
What is the rule for dividing coefficients? First subtract the exponent values and then divide the numerical coefficients. 6x10^5 / 3x10^2 now is 6/3=10^3 ending result 2x10^3
