This is part of a Chemical Equilibrium question and I'm just a bit stuck on how to work out the problem with scientific notation and my calculator..
(3.1 x 10tothepower -2)to be squared
--------------------------------------
(8.5 x 10tothepower -1) x (3.1 x 10tothepower -3)to be cubed
I have the answer in my worksheet but I'm unsure of how it was got. I have tried but I got a completely different answer (0.12156...)
Thanks for your reply.
Is that the best method when dealing with these types of questions- to separate the powers?
The answer I get is 37950.664
The answer in the worksheet is 3.8 x 10tothepowerof4. So because the question started with the scientific notation you can put the answer back in like that. If that makes any sense???
