Multiplying Quantities Written in Scientific Notation
Solve the following problem.
(2 * 10^{14} cm) * (9 * 10^{12} cm)
To answer the multiplication problem first multiply the factors 2 * 9 = 18 then add the exponents 14 +12 = 26 combine the factors 18 * 10^{26}. Ultimately multiply the units as well as write your answer in scientific notation: 1.8 * 10^{27} cm^{2}.
