1 meter = 100 cm
1.1 / 100 = 0.011 m

But the answer says, its supposed to be : 1.1 * 10^2m

pico means 10^{12} meter
76.2m * (10^12 picometers/meter)

1.1cm*1m/100cm=.011 meter, and in scientific notation,1.1*10^2 m or in exponential notation, 1.1E2 meters.

This is really confusing. For number 2, it says that the answer is supposed to be : 76.2 * 10^11

Physics  Converting  bobpursley, Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 6:17pm
oops, I erred , I read it as 76m to pm
76.2pm*(10^12 m/pm)=76.2E12 m and in scientific notation, 7.62*10^11 m.
