Every prefix in the metric system denotes a power of 10.
Multiplication by a power of 10 is.
As far as I know, the smallest metric prefix is "yocto-," which is 10-24.
dam is the symbol for decametres. A decametre is 10 metres. Decametres are not regularly used, the prefix is an historical anomaly.
Pico- (symbol p) is a prefix in the metric system denoting one trillionth, a factor of 10^−12 (0.000000000001).
The largest metric prefix is yotta- the symbol is Y (it has to be capital, because y is yocto-) The value is 10^24. Which is very big. giga apex mother suckers
The S.I. prefix for 10-6 is micro.
Deca = 10. A decaliter is 10 liters.
Yotta, at 10^24 or one septillion, is the largest standard prefix.
Dec, as in Decimal or Decade.
The prefix for 10-9 is nano-.
I am not sure but, Micro = 10-6, so Micro micro = 10-12 for which the prefix now is pico.
Millionth is the name for the power of 10 to the negative 6 power. The prefix for this is micro.
The smallest prefix in the SI is yocta- which is 1 x 10 -24, or a quadrillionth.
The Metric system is based on 10.
D (deca). Not a "preferred" multiple.
It is micro (10 -12 )
decka means 10, the symbol is da
It is kilo-
The prefix "giga" means 10 to the power 9; the prefix "exa" means 10 to the power 18.
That's a prefix used to multiply a unit by some power of 10 - most of them by a power of 1000. For example, milli = 1/1000, micro = 1/1,000,000, kilo = 1000, and Mega = 1,000,000.
Assuming you mean one tenth (1/10) then it's deci-.
The appropriate metric prefix is centi- for 10-2
thousand (103)= kilo thousandth (10-3) = milli
