Do you know what 10Which one is bigger 1 g or 1.6605 X 10⁻²⁴ g? Could you explain, please?

So, what is the value of 1.6605 X 10⁻²⁴?

1.6605e-24do you know what 10^{-24}means? It means 1/10^{24}, which is 0.000000000000000000000001.

So, what is the value of 1.6605 x 10⁻²⁴?

That is a common computer/calculator representation of 1.6605*10^-24; the "e" means "times 10 to the power ...". It adds nothing to the discussion unless you interpret it.1.6605e-24

The answer, written out normally, is 0.0000000000000000000000016605.

Now, which is larger: that or 1?

And perhaps you can tell us the context of the question, because there is probably more to discuss.

Multiplying any number by 10Which one is bigger 1 g or 1.6605 X 10⁻²⁴ g? Could you explain, please?

Since both 1 g and 1.6605 X 10⁻²⁴ g are both in grams we just need to decide which is bigger between 1 and 1.6605 X 10⁻²⁴. Based on what I wrote above the answer should be obvious.
