On the other hand, engineering notation allows the numbers to explicitly match their corresponding SI prefixes, which facilitates reading and oral communication.

There are, however, a few differences to distinguish between scientific and engineering notation. As noted previously, the range of values is different, as well as the allowable powers of 10 used to denote the values. The main reason for this difference is that engineering notation follows the metric system prefixes.

Scientific notation and Engineering notation are used to express very large or small numbers. Scientific Notation A number is written in scientific notation if it is written in the form: a×10r where a is a nonzero number with one nonzero digit between -10 and 10 to the left of the decimal point, and r is a power of 10.
