Three Facts and a lie about how scientific Notation is used
Transcript of Three Facts and a lie about how scientific Notation is used
Distance between Objects
The last truth about real life use of scientific notation is to find the distance between two objects. It is a lot easier to have scientific notation for the distance from the earth to the sun than to have a giant number.
Scientific notation clearly helps you chew gum. It can help you move your jaw up and down to chew the gum.
Scientific Notation is used for the construction of bridges. It helps brake down the larger distances into smaller numbers so it is easier to understand.
Another real life use of scientific notation is to find out how many drops of water are in a river. You can use the depth, length, width, and amount of water each drop is to find that out. It is also more meaningful to put it in scientific notation than a large and complicated number.
