Express the number appearing in the following statements in standard form.
(i) 1 micron is equal to $$\frac{1}{1000000}$$ m
(ii) Charge of an electron is 0.000,000,000,000,000,000,16 coulomb.
(iii) Size of a bacteria is 0.0000005 m.
(iv) Size of a plant cell is 0.00001275 m.
(v) Thickness of a thick paper is 0.07 mm.
Solution:
(i) 1 micron = $$\frac{1}{1000000}$$ m = 1 × 10-6
(ii) 0.000,000,000,000,000,000,16 coulomb = 1.6 × 10-19 coulomb.
(iii) Size of bacteria is 0.0000005 m = 5 × 10-7 m.
(iv) Size of plant cell is 0.00001275 m = 1.275 × 10-5 m.
(v) Thickness of a thick paper 0.07 mm = 7 × 10-2 mm. Question 4.
In a stack there are 5 books each of thickness 20mm and 5 paper sheets each of thickness 0.016 mm. What is the total thickness of the stack.
Solution:
Thickness of one book = 20 mm.
Thickness of 5 books = 20 × 5 = 100 mm.
Thickness of 1 sheet of paper = 0.016 mm.
Thickness of 5 sheets of paper = 5 × 0.016 = 0.08 mm.
Total thickness = 100 + 0.08
= 100.08 mm.
= 1.0008 × 102 mm.
