5 INDICES Index nottion Consider the following: In generl n n fctors The letter n in n is clled one of three things: n is the index in n with s the bse n is the exponent or power to which the bse is rised n is the logrithm, with s the bse When number such s 125 is written in the form 5 3 we sy it is in exponentil or index nottion. First Index Lw Expressions in index form cn be multiplied or divided only if they hve the sme bse. To multiply index expressions dd the indices [ 5 fctors of 2 multiplied together] Therefore In generl: m n m+n Second Index Lw To divide index expressions subtrct the indices Therefore [Cncelling three lots of 3] In generl: m n m n, 0 Third Index Lw When n expression in index form is rised to power, multiply the indices. ( ) mens From the First Index Lw Therefore ( ) 5 6 In generl: ( m ) n m n nd ( m b p ) n mn b pn 5

11 Logrithm Lws Corresponding to the three index lws, there re three lws of logrithms to help in mnipulting logrithms. First Logrithm Lw log mn log m log n Second Logrithm Lw m log log m log n Third Logrithm Lw p log m p log Exmples m log 15 log n 53 log 5 log 3 Using the first logrithm lw 12 log log 12 log 5 5 Using the second logrithm lw 2 log 9 2log 9 2log 4log Using the third logrithm lw Note: To use the logrithm lws, ll logrithms must hve the sme bse. These lws together with the definition of logrithm cn be used to simplify nd evlute logrithmic expressions nd to solve equtions involving logrithms. Exmples 1.Solve log 2 x 5 log 2 x x using the definition of logrithm Therefore x 32 2.Simplify log 6 log 2 log 6 log 2 log 6 2 log 12 using first log. lw log 3.

13 EXPONENTIAL EQUATIONS Exponentil equtions hve term in which the vrible is power ( index or exponent). For exmple: x b nd 2 1x 4 3x If two equl numbers cn be expressed with the sme bse then the indices must be equl: ie. m x m y x y [equting indices] We cn use this property to solve exponentil equtions. Exmples 1. 3 x 27 3 x 3 3 [27 is written in index form so tht both sides hve bse of 3]. x 3 [Equte indices] x 2 1x 23 [ is written in index form with bse of 2] 1 x 3 [equte indices nd solve for x] x [25 is written in index form, with bse of 5] 2 [Equte indices nd solve for x] x Not ll equtions hve integer solutions. For exmple: 3 x hs solution between 2 nd 3 since nd Logrithms with bse or bse e cn be used to solve equtions like this with the clcultor. On the clcultor use the log button to evlute logrithms to bse nd the ln button to evlute logrithms to bse e. Exmples 1. 3 x log (3 x ) log () x log (3) 1 [Tke logs (bse ) of both sides] [using log lws] x ( ) x x [using clcultor] 13

21 SCIENTIFIC NOTATION Scientific Nottion (or Stndrd Form) is wy of writing numbers in compct form. A number written in Scientific Nottion is expressed s number from 1 to less thn, multiplied by power of eg To write number in Scientific Nottion: move the deciml point so tht there is one digit (which cnnot be zero), before the deciml point. multiply by power of, equl to the number of plces the deciml point hs been moved. If the deciml point is moved to the left, the power of is positive If the deciml point is moved to the right the power of is negtive Exmples 1. Write 5630 in Scientific Nottion [remember:00 3 ] Move the deciml point three plces to the left. The number becomes 5.63 nd the power of is Write in Scientific Nottion [remember ] Move the deciml point three plces to the right. The number becomes 7.25 nd the power of is Clculte [Clcultions cn be simplified by using index lws] Alwys check your nswer: If the mgnitude of the number is less thn one, then the power of will be negtive. If the mgnitude of the number is greter thn or equl to then the power of will be positive. The mss of the moon is: kg kg. The chrge on one electron is: C C Note how the size of number is more esily seen when written in scientific nottion. Errors re less likely when writing very big nd very smll numbers if they re in scientific nottion. See Exercises 21

23 SIGNIFICANT FIGURES In scientific mesurements, significnt figures re used to indicte the ccurcy of mesurement. The lst digit in mesurement is often n estimte, good guess. All the digits in mesured vlue, including the lst estimted digit, re clled significnt figures or significnt digits. The number of Significnt Figures in mesured vlue Rule 1: Any nonzero digit is significnt. The position of deciml point mkes no difference. Exmple sig. figs sig. figs sig. figs sig. figs Rule 2: Zeros between numbers re significnt. Exmple sig. figs.51 4 sig. figs sig. figs Rule 3: Zeros t the right hnd end of whole numbers re not significnt, unless otherwise stted. Exmple sig. figs sig. figs sig. figs Rule 4: Zeros t the left hnd end of deciml numbers re not significnt. Exmple sig. figs sig. figs sig. figs Rule 5: Zeros t the right hnd end of deciml numbers re significnt. Exmple sig. figs sig. figs sig. figs sig. figs Significnt Figures nd Scientific Nottion The problem of deciding how mny significnt figures vlue hs is simplified by writing its vlue in Scientific Nottion. Exmine the number of digits in the first number below, not in the power of ten. () sig figrule 4 (b) sig figs Rule 3 (c) sig figs Rule 3 (d) sig figs Rule 5 (e) sig figs Rule 5 (f) sig figs Rule 2 See 23
24 Rounding Off Sometimes, numbers must be rounded off so tht vlues do not pper to hve more significnt figures thn would be pproprite or relistic. Rule 1: Rule 2: If the lst digit is greter thn 5, the second lst digit increses by 1 when rounding off. Exmple rounded off to 2 sig figs becomes rounded off to 1 sig fig becomes 6 (not 6.0) If the lst digit is less thn 5, the second lst digit does not chnge. Exmple rounded off to 3 sig figs becomes rounded off to 2 sig figs becomes rounded off to 1 sig fig becomes 1. Rule 3: If the lst digit is 5, the number is rounded off to the nerest even number. Exmple rounded off to 2 sig figs becomes rounded off, becomes 4.6 See Exercise 2 Write ech of the following mesurements in Scientific Nottion nd stte the number of significnt digits in the vlue.
