Metric Conversion

The metric system is a number conversion system based on 10 or multiples of 10. There are 7 base units, but only 5 of them are commonly used in chemistry.

Scientific Notation

Scientist often deal with either very large numbers or very small numbers which can lead to a lot of confusions in data. Scientific notation is a way to express the numbers in powers of 10.
