Problem 1P

Problem 1P:

(II) The age of the universe is thought to be about 14 billion years. Assuming two significant figures, write this in powers of 10 in (a) years, (b) seconds.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Given,

Age of universe Uage = 14 billion years

We know,

1 billion = 1 x 109

Therefore,

14 billion = 14 x 109

Age of universe in years:

Age of universe in years (Uage, y) = 14 billion years

Uage, y = 14 x109 .years

Uage, y= 1.4 x 1010 years

(b) Age of universe in seconds:

1 year = (365 days) (    24 hrs    ) (  60 min   ) (   60 secs   )

1 day                1 hr         ...
