Tool to find the number or the name of powers of 10. The International Unit System uses prefixes that simplify the use of powers of ten (k = kilo = 10^3 = 1000)
The table of prefixes for powers of 10 from the International System of Unit (ISU) is:
- | Scientific Notation | ISU Prefix |
---|---|---|
10^{24} | Yotta | Y |
10^{21} | Zeta | Z |
10^{18} | Exa | E |
10^{15} | Peta | P |
10^{12} | Tera | T |
10^{9} | Giga | G |
10^{6} | Mega | M |
10^{3} | kilo | k |
10^{2} | hecto | h |
10^{1} | deca | da |
10^{0} | ||
10^{-1} | deci | d |
10^{-2} | centi | c |
10^{-3} | milli | m |
10^{-6} | micro | µ |
10^{-9} | nano | n |
10^{-12} | pico | p |
10^{-15} | femto | f |
10^{-18} | atto | a |
10^{-21} | zepto | z |
10^{-24} | yocto | y |
It is possible to code a message:
Example: DCODE with -1,-2,0,-1,18 or dc0dE
Letters are Y Z E P T G M k h d c m µ n p f a z y.
The prefix myria- (as in myriad) is obsolete, it meant $ 10 ^ 4 = 10,000 $
