I'm confused when it comes to converting units. Ok here's a problem, what is 70 µm in meters? kilometers? I know that one µ equals 10^-6 so does that mean 70 µm = 0.000070m? I did 70.0 and counted forward 6 decimal places to get my answer. But I don't think I did it right. How would I do kilometers? It says that kilo equals 10^3. Would it be 70000?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thanks
