order of magnitude

HideShow resource information

Prokaryotic cells are much smaller than eukaryotic cells.

All sizes in science are based on a metre, in biology they're often much smaller than that. 


1 metre divided into 100 equal parts = 100 centimetres.

1 cm is 1/100th of a metre.

1cm=1x10(minus power of 2)m
