I say in the view of an electrician, most of them also think so. I should say an ordinary electrician will never see a capacitor of 1 farad. The calculattions they often have to deal with also in p, n or muy.I disagree. We do math with those numbers all the time, often in our head. How can you calculate the LPF pole from R and C numbers, and not do the math on the prefixes too? The meaning of numerical prefixes never fades away -- they are part of the number itself.
Of course, we all know the meaning of K, M, mm, muy n , p etc..
