What prefixes do I need to know?

Postby paullim49 » Sat Oct 12, 2013 2:11 pm

There are prefixes in the textbook that are not in the course reader. Should we still know the ones in the textbook?

What do you mean by prefixes. Do you mean metric prefixes?

ANSWER: You should probably know the prefixes:
mili = 10^-3
micro = 10^-6
nano = 10^-9
pico = 10^-12

It would be useful to memorize the highlighted prefixes as they are the most common.
