Problem 35P

Express each number in decimal notation (i.e., express the number without using scientific notation).

(a) 6.022 × 1023 (number of carbon atoms in 12.01 g of carbon)

(b) 1.6 × 10−19 C (charge of a proton in coulombs)

(c) 2.99 × 108 m/s (speed of light)

(d) 3 .44 × 102 m/s (speed of sound)

Problem 35P

Express each number in decimal notation (i.e., express the number without using scientific notation).

(a) 6.022 × 1023 (number of carbon atoms in 12.01 g of carbon)

(b) 1.6 × 10?19 C (charge of a proton in coulombs)

(c) 2.99 × 108 m/s (speed of light)

(d) 3 .44 × 102 m/s (speed of sound)

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 4

(a)

The given value -

The number of carbon atoms in 12.01 g of carbon is .

The positive exponent means 1 multiplied by 10 “n” times .

Since exponent is 23, we have to multiply one by times . We have to move the decimal point 23 places to the right side.

The decimal notation - 602200000000000000000000000.
