Standard Notation Converter:

It converts scientific notation numbers to E-notation, engineering notation, & decimal notation format. Here you can convert any number to standard form, e-notation, and engineering form easily. You can provide any format as input it generates result in all other formats.

About Notations :

Notations are used to represent a complex form of numbers to a simple format. Notations are used in science, engineering and many other fields. We can write a very large number or a small number in a simple and convenient manner by using notations. There are three different types of notations are there namely.
Scientific notation or standard notation.
Engineering notation.
E-notation.

Scientific Notations :

Scientific notations are also called "Standard notations". We can write any number in the form of "M*10n". Here we have two parts magnitude and exponent (power of 10). The magnitude value is varied in between 1 < |m| < 10 & "n" value is varied based on magnitude value.

Magnitude value must in between 1 to 10 so to make it we have to move decimal point value from left digit to right then the exponent is positive. If a decimal point moves from right digit to the left then the exponent is negative.

Example1:
Converter 500000 number to scientific notation?
We know 100000 = 105 then
500000 = 5x105.
Answer:
500000 is converted as scientific notation 5x105.

Example2:
0.0024000 convert to scientific notation?
We know 0.0024000 = 2.400x10-3
0.0024000 = 2.400x10-3.
Answer:
0.002400 is converted as scientific notation 2.400x10-3.

Engineering Notation :

It is identical as standard notation except magnitude (m) range. For engineering notations range must be in 1 < |m| < 1000. It is used in engineering calculators.

Example:
Convert 547600000000 to prefix gaga notation?
1000000000 = 109 then
547600000000 = 345.6 × 109.

E – Notations :

E-notations are same as standard notations but instead of powers of 10, we use "e" to represent the number. It is also called exponential notations. Example:
Convert 800000 to E-notation?
We know 100000 = 105 then
800000 = 8 x 105.
8 x 105 = 8e5.
Answer:
800000 are converted as E notation 8e5.

Examples of scientific notation

10000 = 1 x 10424327 = 2.4327 x 104
1000 = 1 x 1037354 = 7.354 x 103
100 = 1 x 102482 = 4.82 x 102
10 = 1 x 10189 = 8.9 x 101 (not usually done)
1 = 100
1/10 = 0.1 = 1 x 10-10.32 = 3.2 x 10-1 (not usually done)
1/100 = 0.01 = 1 x 10-20.053 = 5.3 x 10-2
1/1000 = 0.001 = 1 x 10-30.0078 = 7.8 x 10-3
1/10000 = 0.0001 = 1 x 10-40.00044 = 4.4 x 10-4
