Express the number appearing in the following statements in standard form.

(i) 1 micron is equal to 1/1000000 m.

(ii) Charge of an electron is 0.000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 16 coulomb.

(iii) Size of 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

- 1/1000000

=1.6 ×10

3. 0.0000005

=5 ×10

4. 0.00001275

=1.275 ×10

5. 0.07

=7×10

In a stack there are 5 books each of thickness 20 mm and 5 paper sheets each of thickness 0.016 mm. What is the total thickness of the stack?

Total thickness

=5×20 + 5X.016

=100 + 5× 1.6 ×10

=100 + .08

=100.08 mm
