## What is this called μ?

“What is mu (µ)? The lowercase Greek letter µ (pronounced mu) generally represents the prefix multiplier 0.000001, i.e., 10-6 or one millionth. For example, 0.000001 farad or 10-6 F of electrical capacitance is commonly written as 1 µF.”

## What is the value for μm?

“A micron is a metric unit of measurement where one micron is equivalent to one one-thousandth of a millimetre [1 micron (1μ) = 1/1000 mm] or 1 micron (micrometer) = 1/1,000,000 of a metre.”

## Why is μ μm?

“This became necessary because the older usage was incompatible with the official adoption of the unit prefix micro-, denoted μ, during the creation of the SI in 1960. In the SI, the systematic name micrometre became the official name of the unit, and μm became the official unit symbol.”

## How do you write 1E 12?

“1E12 is the same as 1000000000000 (a million million).”

## What is 1E10?

“1E10 = 1 x 10^10 = 1 x (10 to the power 10) which is a 1 followed by 10 zeros (10,000,000,000)”

## What does 1E 3 mean?

“To specify a floating point number, either include a decimal point somewhere in the number, or use exponential notation, for example 1e3 or 1E3 to represent 1000 (1 times 10 to the third power).”

## Is 0.1 a scientific notation?

“The following examples may help to illustrate how scientific notation works, 10 can be written as 1 x 10 1, 0.1 as 1 x 10 -1 , 100 as 1 x 10 2 , and 0.01 as 1 x 10 -2 .”

## What is 0.01 written as a decimal?

“This means 100 pennies equals 1.00. One penny is part of a dollar. More specifically, it’s 1 cent. We could also write that as a decimal: 0.01.”

## What is 0.001 as a power of 10?

“

101=10 | 101=1 |

102=100 | 10-1=0.1 |

103=1000 | 10-2=0.01 |

104=10,000 | 10-3=0.001 |

## Is 0.000001 a micro?

“Likewise, a kilometer is equal to 1000 meters, while a micrometer is equal to 0.000001 m.”

## What is the name of µ?

“In some texts, the symbol µ is an abbreviation for micrometers or microns. It is used to represent many real-world quantities, including magnetic permeability, coefficient of friction, electrical mobility of charged particles and mass per unit length.”

## Is µ micro?

“Micro (Greek letter μ (U+03BC) or the legacy symbol µ (U+00B5)) is a unit prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of 10−6 (one millionth). Confirmed in 1960, the prefix comes from the Greek μικρός (mikrós), meaning “small”. The symbol for the prefix is the Greek letter μ (mu).”

## Does micro mean 1000?

“For example, a kilogram is equal to 1000 grams, while a microgram is equal to 0.000001 g. Likewise, a kilometer is equal to 1000 meters, while a micrometer is equal to 0.000001 m.”
