What are the prefixes for SI units?
Multiplying Factor | SI Prefix | Scientific Notation |
---|---|---|
0.1 | deci (d) | 10^{-}^{1} |
0.01 | centi (c) | 10^{-}^{2} |
0.001 | milli (m) | 10^{-}^{3} |
0.000 001 | micro (Au) | 10^{-}^{6} |
What are the prefixes that SI units use?
The metric system of measurement allows for the designation of multiples or subdivisions of any unit by adding to the name of the unit the prefixes hecto, deka, and kilo meaning respectively 10, 100, 1000 and deci, centi and milli. These mean, respectively, one tenth, one hundredth, and one-thousandth.
You may also wonder what a prefix unit is. A unit prefix, or mnemonic, is a significator or mnemonic that is added to units of measurement to indicate multiples of or fractions of those units. Units are often formed using such prefixes. Binary prefixes are often used in information technology. They are based on powers that two.
