Physics fundamentals segments.

Semester 1 of physics is the study of mechanics, which involves motion and its causes. After reviewing the mathematical skills needed for this study, you will be introduced to vectors, learning how to express quantities including direction and how to deal with vectors in calculations. Next, you will study linear motion and will learn to solve problems involving both uniform and accelerated motion, including the motion of falling objects. In the unit on Newton's Laws of Motion, you will study the causes of motion and will be introduced to motion in two dimensions. Then you will learn about different kinds of forces, from friction to gravitational and centripetal forces. Next, you will be introduced to momentum and energy and will learn how both are conserved. Finally, you will study rotational motion, solving problems involving torque.

## Scientific Notation – Working With Exponents

Scientific notation is a method of writing very large or very small numbers in decimal form. The method is used by scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. Scientific notation is also called standard form, standard index form, or scientific form. Examples of large numbers written in scientific notation include Avogadro’s number (6.022 x 10 23 ) and the speed of light (3.0 x 10 8 m/s). An example of a small number written using scientific notation is the electrical charge of an electron (1.602 x 10 -19 Coulombs).

## Scientific Notation Basics

In scientific notation, numbers are written in two parts using the form m × 10 n where m is any real number and n is an integer exponent . The real number is called the mantissa or significand, while the exponent is called the mantissa.

There are multiple ways to write any real number in scientific notation. For example: 250 = 2.5 x 10 2 = 25 × 10 1 = 250 × 10 0 = 2500 x 10 -1 0.014 = 1.4 x 10 -2 = 14 x 10 -3 = 0.0014 x 10 1

Numbers are usually reported using normalized scientific notation or the standard form, where m is a decimal number greater than or equal to 1 but less than 10. Examples of numbers written in the standard form include 2.5 x 10 2 and 1.4 x 10 -2 . Even though you may report numbers this way, it’s important to know how to convert to scientific notation using other exponents so that you can perform calculations with two numbers both written in scientific notation.

To write a large number in standard form, move the decimal point to the left until only one digit remains to the left of the decimal point. Large numbers always have positive exponents. For example: 3,454,000 = 3.454 x 10 6 For small numbers, move the decimal point to the right until only one digit remains to the left of the decimal point. Small numbers always have negative exponents in standard form. For example: 0.0000005234 = 5.234 x 10 -7

## Scientific Notation Worksheet

## Addition and Subtraction Using Scientific Notation

Handle addition and subtraction the same way:

- Write the two numbers in scientific notation. First make certain the two numbers have the same exponent as each other. If they do not, convert one of them to match the other. It doesn’t matter which one you convert.
- Add or subtract the first part of the numbers, leaving the exponent portion unchanged.
- Report the number in the standard form of scientific notation.

Examples: (1.1 x 10 3 ) + (2.1 x 10 3 ) = 3.2 x 10 3 (5.3 x 10 -4 ) – (2.2 x 10 -4 ) = (5.3 – 1.2) x 10 -4 = 3.1 x 10 -4

## Multiplication and Division With Scientific Notation

You don’t need the exponents to be the same for multiplication and division.

- Multiply (or divide) the first part of the two numbers.
- For multiplication, add the exponents. For division, subtract the exponents.
- Convert the answer to standard form.

Multiplication Example

(2.3 x 10 5 )(5.0 x 10 -12 ) =

Multiply 2.3 and 5.3 to get 11.5. Add the exponents to get 10 -7 . At this point, the answer is:

11.5 x 10 -7

You want to express your answer in standard scientific notation, which has only one digit to the left of the decimal point, so the answer should be rewritten as:

1.15 x 10 -6

Division Example

(2.1 x 10 -2 ) / (7.0 x 10 -3 ) = 0.30 x 10 1 = 3.0 x 10 -1 Be sure to watch your significant figures !

## Using Scientific Notation on Your Calculator

A basic calculator can’t handle scientific notation. To use it, you need a scientific calculator. The method to enter numbers varies by manufacturer and model. To enter in the numbers, look for a ^ button, which means “raised to the power of” or else y x or x y , which means y raised to the power x or x raised to the y, respectively. Another common button is 10 x , which makes scientific notation easy. The way these button function depends on the brand of calculator, so you’ll need to either read the instructions or else test the function. You will either press 10 x and then enter your value for x or else you enter the x value and then press the 10 x button. Test this with a number you know, to get the hang of it.

Calculator brands handle order of operations differently from one another. Ideally, exponent operations come before multiplication and division, which come before addition and subtraction. But, it’s a good idea to use parentheses, when available, to force the order of operations. Practice entering simple equations (or read the manual) to make certain calculations are carried out correctly.

Some calculators and most computers use a key labeled E, EE, EXP (for exponent), or EEX (for enter exponent) because their display cannot display superscript exponents. The capital letter E is used to distinguish scientific notation from the natural logarithm e. Usually, scientific notation is entered using the format m E n to signify m x 10 n . Certain calculators, such as the popular TI-84, offer options to display values using E notation or superscripts.
