198.46 times. Take (1.908*10^24)/(6*10^21)=198.46

  • anonymous
If you need scientific notation, it's 1.9846*10^2

Thank you, however how did you get 1.9846 I thought you multiply 6 x 1.908 to get 11.448

Division is a ratio. Divide the mass of Jipiter by the mass of Earth.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be (1.908 x10^24) / (6 x 10^21)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Exactly
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok, but I get .318 x 10^-3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Check your math. The rule of exponents will allow us to subtract 10^24-10^21.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok then I have .318 x 10^3 right
anonymous
  • anonymous
Nope, that would be 318.

  • anonymous
Let's try this...
anonymous
  • anonymous
(1.908/6)=.198
anonymous
  • anonymous
.198*10^3=198.46
anonymous

Before subtracting the exponents, simplify the rest of the fraction first.

I understand the divide the mass of Jupiter by the mass of Earth. (1.908/6) but I get 0.318. I just don't get it. I ams sorry. But thank you very much for trying to explain it to me.
