Express following measurements in scientific notation.

1. a) 5800 m

I don't even get what scientific notation is. In my book its ays, that in Scientific notation, the numerical part of a measurement is expressed as a number between 1 and 10 multiplied by a whole-number power of 10.

So does that mean that the whole number is always going to be 10?

How exactly do I do this? I don't get how to convert:\


    its going to be 58x10^2
    or 5.8x10^3


    Where do you get the decimal from?
    And where do the 2 and 3 come from? I don't understand.
