Represent each of the following combinations of units in the correct SI form using an appropriate prefix: (a) 0.000431 kg, (b) 35.3(10³) N, and (c) 0.00532 km.

Solution:

a) 0.000431\:kg=0.000431\:\left(10^3\right)g=0.431\:g

b) 35.3\left(10^3\right)N=35.3\:kN

c) 0.00532\:km=0.00532\left(10^3\right)m=5.32\:m
