The calculator tool used for writing a given number in Scientific Notation is called as Scientific notation calculator. Scientific notation means keeping the first digit of the given number intact and placing a decimal next to the other digits and multiplying the number with its appropriate number of 10's (written using exponents).

Example 1: Find the scientific notation of the given number 510000

The given number is a large number with 6 digits.

To change it into scientific notation, decimal is placed next to the first digit 5.

This means there are 5 decimal spaces on the left from the digit 5.

This makes the exponent of the 10 as 5.

Therefore 510000 can be written in scientific notation as 5.1 X 105.

Hence  510000 = 5.1 X 109

Example 2: Find the scientific notation of the given number 1250000000.

The given number is a large number with 10 digits.

To change it into scientific notation decimal is placed next to the first digit 1.

This means there are 9 decimal spaces on the left from the digit 1.

This makes the exponent of the 10 as 9.

Therefore 1250000000 can be written in scientific notation as 1.25 X 109.

Hence   1250000000 = 1.25 X 109
