Conversion

Postby Jonathan Marcial Dis 1K » Thu Apr 26, 2018 11:27 pm

How would you convert something like -4.09 x 10^-19 into nanometers?

Glad you figured out your mistake! For the future though, I like to use dimensional analysis for my conversions as to avoid any mistakes or confusion. I use the following set up. Let's say I'm trying to convert from meters to nanometers, and I have meters. I know that 1 nanometer is 10^-9. So, I can set up my conversion as seen below, and that will give me my answer in nanometers!



Hope this helped!
