The Scientific Notation Calculator is used to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication and division calculations in scientific notation.
Scientific notation (also called standard form or exponential notation) is a way of writing numbers that accommodates values too large or small to be conveniently written in standard decimal notation.
In scientific notation, all numbers are written like this:
a × 10b
where the exponent b is an integer, and the coefficient a is any real number (called the significand or mantissa).
E notation is a type of scientific notation in which the phrase “times 10 to the power of” is replaced by the letter E or e; for example, 1.2 × 105 is written as 1.2E+5 or 1.2e5 and 7.4 × 10-8 is written as 7.4E-8.
