Metric Prefixes

  1. Dec 25, 2008 #1
    Any tricks or tips on memorizing metric prefixes?

    I need to memorize from femto to tera & I've tried writing them out 100 times but it hasn't worked in the long run.

    (btw, is deca D~ or da~ there seems to be a discrepancy in my notes)

    thank you

    I think one just has to use the prefixes, much like one learns about million, billion, trillion, . . .

    deca is da, as in daN = deca Newtons
