    I thought you wanted [math]27 S^4= 2*10^{-36}[/math]. So first divide both sides of the equation by 27: [math]S^4= \frac{2}{27}*10^{-36}[/math] and then take the fourth root: [math]S= \sqrt[4]{\frac{2}{27} 10^{-36/4}[/math]. However, that is NOT "3.435 X 10 ^-9" so apparently I am misunderstanding your question.
