What does the SI prefix 'nano' mean?
The prefix nano- is equal to 10-9 and is represented by the Greek letter nu, which looks like a lower-case v. But when writing it on tests and papers, just use a lower-case n, so nanoseconds, for example, is abbreviated nsec or ns.
It basically means "one billionth." So a nanosecond is one billionth of a second.
It basically means "one billionth." So a nanosecond is one billionth of a second.

The prefix by- (or bye- ) means 1 close at hand or near, as in bystander; 2 out of the way, aside, as in bypass; 3 secondary or incidental, as in bylaw, bye-election.
It is an addition to the beginning of a word or it is a smallnumber or letter next to a larger number in math and chemistry. The opposite of a suffix, its something that you would add to the front of a word. Like done, re-done.
Becauseuse SI units are based on metric system and uses the seven SI base units
Answer . technology that is very very small. usually so tiny the effects are reached by the use of chemicel or biological reactions rather then the use of machines
Answer . The prefix "a" means not or against.. No the prefix "a" does not meant against....the prefix for against or opposing to is contra. The prefix "a" just means, without, lacking or not.. This is different because of such:. Amoral would mean to have the exact opposite morals ie thinking …doing good things is bad and bad things good. When infact amoral just means, to not think anything is bad. (MORE)

SI prefixes define sub-units or multiples (of ten) and are added to SI units to make it easier to express large or small quantities. For example: . You would probably say someone weighs 100 kg, not 100,000 grams. . You would probably say you are going to walk 10 km, not 10,000 metres The stan…dard prefixes, their values and abbreviations: Larger Units : deca 1x10 1 da * hecto 1x10 2 h * kilo 1x10 3 k mega 1x10 6 M giga 1x10 9 G tera 1x10 12 T peta 1x10 15 P exa 1x10 18 E zetta 1x10 21 Z yotta 1x10 24 Y Smaller Units : . deci 1x10 -1 d * centi 1x10 -2 c milli 1x10 -3 m micro 1x10 -6 Âµ * * nano 1x10 -9 n pico 1x10 -12 p femto 1x10 -15 f atto 1x10 -18 a zepto 1x10 -21 z yocto 1x10 -24 y * Also defined but not widely used for all units ** While micro is officially abbreviated Î¼ (the greek letter mu), it is common practice to substitute the lower-case u in its place for keyboard convenience. The following metric prefixes were generally used as part of the metric system prior to standardization through SI. myria 1x10 4 ma or my myrio 1x10 -4 mo (MORE)
SI prefixes precede a unit of measure to indicate decimal multiples or dividions. This reduces the number of zeros needed to express large or small quantities. One gigabyte is easier to read, write and say than 1000000000 bytes and one microsecond is simpler than .000001 second.. For measuring leng…th (meter), volume (liter), or mass (gram) prefixes are all the same. SI prefixes stand for:. Femto (f) 10 -15 One Quadrillionth Pico (p) 10 -12 One Trillionth Nano (n) 10 -9 One Billionth Micro (Âµ) 10 -6 One Millionth (greek letter 'mu') Milli (m) 10 -3 One Thousandth Centi (c) 0.01 One Hundredth Deci (d) 0.1 One Tenth one = initial value deka (dk) = Ten hecto (h) = One Hundred Kilo (k) 10 3 One Thousand Mega (M) 10 6 One Million Giga (G) 10 9 One Billion Tera (T) 10 12 One Trillion Peta (P) 10 15 One Quadrillion (MORE)
Prefixes make it much much easier to understand. The prefix tells how many digits the unit has. So it is both easy to convert and understand. :) Example: 1 gigabyte is easier to read than 1000000000 bytes
If you mean the "Metric" system (SI), there are a great many prefixes, including kilo- (thousands), hecto- (hundreds), milli- (thousandth), micro- (millionth), pico- (trillionth). Hect(o)- is not used much in scientific work with the exception of hectoPascals (hPa) which replaced millibars in meteor…ology and occasionally in the unit of area hectares. (MORE)
The prefix an- ( or a- before a consonant) is cognate with English un- . Found chiefly in scientific terminlogy, it negates the term it is prefixed to. For example an-hydrous means un-watery, a-pathetic means un-caring.
The SI prefix for trillionth is pico- and is given in scientificnotation as 10E-12. The SI prefix for trillion is tera- . In themetric system, SI prefixes are important because they referencedecimal positions.
Milli * * * * * No. Milli means a thousandth. The prefix for 1000 is kilo.
really small. Divided into a billion parts. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter. A nanosecond is one billionth of a second. A nanocraig would be one billionth of some guy named Craig.Ex. if you have 650 nm it would be equivalent to 650 x10^-9 m
The prefix that means one-hundredth is centi- (as in centimeter, or .01 of a meter). Wikipedia has all the answers, please look at the link for more information. In math 1/100 is more commonly used than one-hundredth. (just thought it would help.) centi-

A prefix is a beginning of a word like the prefix for entangled is en to make. But nothing like a root word.
Am- is not a prefix in its own right. It may form a part of another prefix (such as amphi - in 'amphitheatre' or ambi- in 'ambivalent', both meaning 'both'). It may include the prefix plus the beginning of the root, as in 'amorphous' ( a- meaning 'without' and morphe meaning 'form'). … In words like 'amatory' and 'ambulance', there is no prefix; the root just happens to start with am (respectively, amator meaning 'lover' and ambulans meaning 'walking').

Sometimes you need a very large, or a very small, amount of a certain unit. One way to deal with that is to use prefixes like kilo, mega, milli, micro, and others.\n
The prefix of a billion - in the sense of a thousand millions - is "Gega", abbreviated "G".
The prefixes in this case are kilo, milli, and centi. Kilo means 1000, milli means 1/1000, centi means 1/100. For example, a kilogram is 1000 gram. The prefixes in this case are kilo, milli, and centi. Kilo means 1000, milli means 1/1000, centi means 1/100. For example, a kilogram is 1000 gram. Th…e prefixes in this case are kilo, milli, and centi. Kilo means 1000, milli means 1/1000, centi means 1/100. For example, a kilogram is 1000 gram.

account originates from the word "conter" (fr.: to count) the prefix a/ad means "to" (from Latin, through French)
The units in the SI system are related to by factors or multiples of 10. Rather than have a new name for every multiple of factor, the use of prefices is much simpler. Also, it means that calculations in derived units become simpler. For example 35 milligrams per millilitre is the same as 35 grams …per litre and 35 kilograms per kilolitre. The calculations for the above paragraph took a total of 0 seconds. Try that with ounce, pound, stone and fluid ounce, pint, gallon! Or without using prefices. (MORE)
Prefixes are used because it is easier to say "7.45 centimeters" than it is to say "745 times 10 to the negative-4 meters"
The following prefixes have similar meanings: Ex- can mean out, Out- can mean away from, Ab- or Abs- can mean away or from.
It is represented by the Greek letter 'mu' or Âµ . For example micrometer is Âµm . ------------------------------------------------------------------ It is the symbol "mew." It looks like a u with an extra line in front.
"Centi-" usually means "one hundredth of". One centimeter (cm) is 1/100 of a meter, and similarly one centiliter (cl) is one hundredth of a litre. However, centiliters are rarely used, as most volume units are in milliliters instead (1cl = 10ml).
Deka, abbreviated "D". This has to be written with an uppercase "D", to distinguish it from the prefix "deci" (1/10).
Nano simply refers to one-billionth of something. Two common examples are the nanometer and the nanosecond. Both being one-billionth of the term that proceeds it.
Assuming you mean the American billion (a 1, followed by 9 zeroes), the prefix is Giga, abbreviated "G".
There's actually no such language as "Creole". The word creole refers to a type of language that results from the combination of two completely different parent languages. There are more than 100 different creolized languages in the world, so you would have to specify which one you're talking about.… If you're not sure, here is a list of the most commonly spoken Creoles in the world (one of them is even an official language): . Louisiana Creole French, spoken in Louisiana . Belizean Kriol language, spoken in Belize . Haitian Creole language, French-based, an official language of Haiti . Mauritian Creole, French-based, spoken in Mauritius . Cape Verdean Creole, spoken on the islands of Cape Verde . Krio Dayak language, spoken by Krio Dayak people in West Kalimantan, Indonesia .

The prefix " giga " means 1 billion, so a gigabyte is 1 billion bytes
The SI prefixes are from Greek, including deka, hecta, kilo, and mega (10, 100, 1000, 1 million)
The prefix of the word prefix is pre. Pre would mean before. As most know, a prefix is at the BEGINNING, and a suffix is at the END. Just the word prefix should have given it away. -MaximinePenguinTIME!
The prefix; post, means after. So, if you hear someone saying that they are going to post pone a party, then they are really saying that they are going to move the party to a time after the original date.
Si can mean dead or think. My name is Si in Chinese so it means think.
What does micro micro mean in metric prefix. I know this was an older designation used for a metric prefix. Was it used for nano or pico?
I am not sure but, Micro = 10 -6 , so Micro micro = 10 -12 for which the prefix now is pico.
Femto's symbol is a lower case "f". In electronics it is also the symbol for frequency and therefor would be confusing. I am in pre-engineering and taking a Digital Electronics class.
denci is not an SI prefix. centi = 0.01 or one hundredth kilo = 1000 = thousand milli = 0.001 = one thousandth.
A prefix comes at the beginning of a word. Prefixes have meanings from the Latin or Greek language.
The opposite of ... inability not having the specific ability. incoherent ... not coherent ... not understandable.
They are different prefixes for amounts less than unity: . kilo = 1/1000 . micro = 1/1,000,000 . nano = 1/1,000,000,000 . pico = 1/1,000,000,000,000 .
