The Scientific Notation for Fractional Numbers Calculator is an online tool that represents a given fraction in the Scientific Notation form. BYJU’S Scientific Notation Calculator for a fractional number makes calculations simple and interesting.
What is Scientific Notation?
Scientific notation is a way of representing very small or very large numbers in a simple form. For example, 700000 can be represented as:
700000 = 7 x 105
As we can see, the number 700000 is represented using power and exponent, such as multiplication of 7 and 10, raised to the power 5.
In case of very small numbers, the exponent value raised to the power 10 will be negative. For example, 0.0004 can be written as:
4 x 10-4
Therefore, we can say, the generic form of scientific notation is:
m x 10n ; 1 ≤ m < 10
