Transcript of Scientific Notation

Scientific Notation
Scientific notation is the format used by those in the scientific field to easily work with massive numbers or with numbers that are much smaller than one. The number being worked is always going to be between the numbers one and nine and the base for the exponent is always going to be ten.
The Spire is a smaller extension of the Eagle Nebula, but still much larger than our own solar system.The Spire is about...
20 light-years
from the Earth.
Violet Light Wave
Violet light waves are electromagnetic radiations with a wave length that may be perceived by an unaided human eye. A violet light wave is about the size of:
400 nanometers

Sedna is a planet with a elliptical orbit and one year on Sedna is equivalent to about a thousand Earth years. Sedna is about...
1,800 kilometers
1.8*10^8 kilometers
from the Earth.
Spica is is part of the Virgo constellation and fifteenth brightest star. Spica is about...
9.6 million kilometers
from the Earth.
The Spire
Ultraviolet Waves
This wave type has shorter wave length than other wave lengths and, in some instances, some animals (bumble bees being an example) can even see these wave lengths. Ultraviolet wave lengths are about the size of:
60 Nanometers
All of the listed items have something common but I choose to explain the similarities and differences of Spica, Sedna, and The Spire Nebula.
Spica, Sedna, and the Spire are alike in that all three are space objects and their distances are the same in relation to one another; even when in orbit they would (logically) stay the same distance apart. But the differences are more prominent than the shared similarities between the three; a difference that they all share is the type of space object that they are. An example being the star Spica and the planet Sedna; another example being the vastly different distances among the three in relation to the Earth and Sun.

(Not completely exact, this has been done upon memory)
