Orders of magnitude (length)

The following are examples of orders of magnitude for different lengths.

Orders of magnitude (speed)

To help compare different orders of magnitude, the following list describes various speed levels between approximately 2.2×10−18 m/s and 3.0×108 m/s (the speed of light). Values in bold are exact.

Microscopic scale

The microscopic scale (from Ancient Greek μικρός (mikrós) 'small', and σκοπέω (skopéō) 'to look (at); examine, inspect') is the scale of objects and events smaller than those that can easily be seen b

Orders of magnitude (probability)

This page lists events in order of increasing probability, grouped by orders of magnitude. These probabilities were calculated given assumptions detailed in the relevant articles and references. For e

Orders of magnitude (pressure)

This is a tabulated listing of the orders of magnitude in relation to pressure expressed in pascals.

Macroscopic scale

The macroscopic scale is the length scale on which objects or phenomena are large enough to be visible with the naked eye, without magnifying optical instruments. It is the opposite of microscopic.

Orders of magnitude (area)

This page is a progressive and labelled list of the SI area orders of magnitude, with certain examples appended to some list objects.

Orders of magnitude (magnetic field)

This page lists examples of magnetic induction B in teslas and gauss produced by various sources, grouped by orders of magnitude. Note:
* Traditionally, magnetizing field H, is measured in amperes pe

Cosmic View

Cosmic View: The Universe in 40 Jumps is a 1957 book by Dutch educator Kees Boeke that combines writing and graphics to explore many levels of size and structure, from the astronomically vast to the a

Orders of magnitude (energy)

This list compares various energies in joules (J), organized by order of magnitude.

Names of small numbers

This article lists and discusses the usage and derivation of names of small numbers.

Orders of magnitude (illuminance)

To help compare different orders of magnitude, the following list describes various source of lux, which is measured in lumens per square metre.

Orders of magnitude (force)

The following list shows different orders of magnitude of force. Since weight under gravity is a force, several of these examples refer to the weight of various objects. Unless otherwise stated, these

Order of magnitude

An order of magnitude is an approximation of the logarithm of a value relative to some contextually understood reference value, usually 10, interpreted as the base of the logarithm and the representat

Orders of magnitude (frequency)

The following list illustrates various frequencies, measured in hertz, according to decade in the order of their magnitudes, with the negative decades illustrated by events and positive decades by aco

Orders of magnitude (volume)

The table lists various objects and units by the order of magnitude of their volume.

Orders of magnitude (acceleration)

This page lists examples of the acceleration occurring in various situations. They are grouped by orders of magnitude.

Orders of magnitude (luminance)

This page lists examples of luminances, measured in candelas per square metre and grouped by order of magnitude.

Power of 10

A power of 10 is any of the integer powers of the number ten; in other words, ten multiplied by itself a certain number of times (when the power is a positive integer). By definition, the number one i

Leading-order term

The leading-order terms (or corrections) within a mathematical equation, expression or model are the terms with the largest order of magnitude. The sizes of the different terms in the equation(s) will

Orders of magnitude (angular momentum)

The following table lists various orders of magnitude for angular momentum, in Joule-seconds.

Orders of magnitude (numbers)

This list contains selected positive numbers in increasing order, including counts of things, dimensionless quantities and probabilities. Each number is given a name in the short scale, which is used

Orders of magnitude (current)

To help compare different orders of magnitude, the following list describes various ampere levels.

Orders of magnitude (molar concentration)

This page lists examples of the orders of magnitude of molar concentration. Source values are parenthesized where unit conversions were performed.

Orders of magnitude (charge)

This article is a progressive and labeled list of the SI charge orders of magnitude, with certain examples appended to some list objects.(This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy partic

Orders of magnitude (bit rate)

An order of magnitude is generally a factor of ten. A quantity growing by four orders of magnitude implies it has grown by a factor of 10000 or 104. However, because computers are binary, orders of ma

Orders of magnitude (time)

An order of magnitude of time is usually a decimal prefix or decimal order-of-magnitude quantity together with a base unit of time, like a microsecond or a million years. In some cases, the order of m

Orders of magnitude (specific heat capacity)

This is a table of specific heat capacities by magnitude. Unless otherwise noted, these values assume standard ambient temperature and pressure.

Orders of magnitude (entropy)

The following list shows different orders of magnitude of entropy.

Orders of magnitude (power)

This page lists examples of the power in watts produced by various sources of energy. They are grouped by orders of magnitude from small to large.

Computer performance by orders of magnitude
