What is Scientfic Notation?
How Scientifc Notation is used in Astronomy?
Scientific notation is a way to express very large and very small numbers.
When the exponent is a negative number it means the decimal is going to the right.
When the exponent is a postive number it means the decimal is going to the left.
Mass of an atom
How many atoms are in a body
How small is an atom
Atoms length
How big is DNA or RNA

Distance from the Earth to the Sun
The Sun's diameter
The length of a supergiant
Distance from a star to another star
The length of a galaxy
Mass of the Sun
Example 1
What is the mass of a 1 carat diamond in scientific notation? Mass of a 1 carat diamond is 0.000,000,000,000,000,000,000,020 grams.
2.0 × 10-23

What is the standard form of 1.989×1033?
To simplify big numbers to be easier to divide, multiply, add, and subract. To make the cofficient easier to say, read, and write
(4.215 x 10-2) + (3.2 x 10-4) = 4.247 x 10-2
(3.4 x 106)(4.2 x 103) = 1.4 x 1010
(3.2 x 103)/(5.7 x 10-2) = 5.6 x 104
