This can be important when a measurement of importance is the small difference between two very similar quantities. If the similar quantities are expressed in scientific notation such that some decimals are lost, it is possible that the difference appears to be zero.

Representation of very large or very small numbers or quantities in a straightforward way.

Scientific notation produces convenient numbers when working with very small or very large quantities.
