## Scientific Notation in Excel

Sometimes, we can be working with a very big or small number. In general. expressing these types of numbers is very difficult. For this reason, we normally express these numbers to the base **10 **for understanding easily. Suppose a number is 500000. But we can express it as **5x 10^5** which is very understandable. In Excel, it is expressed as **5.00E+05**.

## How to Convert Scientific Notation to x10 to the Power of 3 in Excel: 3 Easy Ways

In this article, we have demonstrated **3 **easy methods for converting scientific notation to **x10 to the power of 3 **(**x10^3**) format**.** Using **Formulas**, **Format Cells** and **User-Defined Functions** we can easily do our task. We will use the following simple dataset to demonstrate the method.

### 1. Use Formula to Convert Scientific Notation to x10 to the Power of 3 Format in Excel

Using **Formula**, we can easily convert scientific notation to **x10^3** format. Letâ€™s follow the steps to learn the method.

#### 1.1 Combine LEFT, TEXT and RIGHT Functions

We will form the formula by combining **LEFT**, **TEXT** and **RIGHT** functions. We will use the following figure for this method.

Letâ€™s see the steps to convert scientific notation to **x10 **to the power of** 3 **(**x10^3**) format.

**STEPS:**

- Firstly, select the
**C5**cell.

** **

- Secondly, enter the following formula in the
**C5**cell.

`=LEFT(TEXT(B5,"0.00E+0"),3)&"x10^"&RIGHT(TEXT(B5,"0.00E+0"),2)`

- PressÂ
**Enter.** - So, the output of the
**C5**cell is converted into**x10^3Â**format.

**2**parts. The

**Right**function takes the value ofÂ

**x10^().**As the cell is referring to the

**B5**cell, it will take the rightmost

**2**digits of the text version of the

**B5 cell**. With the

**Left**function

**,**it takes the value before

**x10^().**It will take the leftmost

**3**digits of the text version of the

**B5**cell.

- After that, drag the formula from
**C6**to**C8**cells with the help of**AutoFill**.

- Finally, all the scientific notations are converted into
**x10**to the power of**3**(**x10^3**) format.

#### 1.2 Apply REPLACE, SEARCH and TEXT Functions Together

Now, we will form another formula by combining **IF**, **REPLACE**, **SEARCH** and **TEXT** functions. We will use the following figure for this method.

Letâ€™s see the steps to convert scientific notation to **x10^3** format.

**STEPS:**

- Firstly, select the
**C5**cell.

** **

- Secondly, enter the following formula in the
**C5**cell.

`=IF(B5>=1,REPLACE(TEXT(B5,"0.0E+00"),SEARCH("E", TEXT(B5,"0.0E+00")),2,"x10^"), REPLACE(TEXT(B5,"0.0E+00"),SEARCH("E",TEXT(B5,"0.0E+00")),1,"x10^"))`

- PressÂ
**Enter.** - So, the output of the
**C5**cell is converted into**x10^3Â**format.

**B5**cell. If the value of the cell is greater than

**1**, then there is no need to consider the symbol of power. So, here we are ignoring the sign of exponential (

**E**). But in the

**false**case, when the value is less than 1

**,**then we need to consider the sign of exponential.

- After that, drag the formula from
**C6**to**C8**cells with the help of**AutoFill**.

- Finally, all the scientific notations are converted into
**x10^3Â**format.

### 2. Apply Format Cells Option to Display x10 to the Power of 3 in Excel

Applying the **Format Cells **option, we can simply display the **x10** to the power of **3 **(**x10^3**) format in Excel. We will use the following figure for demonstrating this method.

Letâ€™s follow the steps to convert scientific notation to **x10^3** format.

**STEPS:**

- Firstly, select from
**C5**to**C8**cells in the**x10^3Â**column.

- After that, click on
**General**of**Number**group from the ribbon.

- Now, a menu bar will open and select
**Text**from there. - So, the selected cells are converted into
**TextÂ**format.

- In the following step, select the
**C5**cell.

** **

- After that, type the number with exponential in the
**C5**cell. - Here, type
**50Ã—103**as we want to see**5.50Ã—10^3**.

- After typing, select 3.
- Here,
**3**is the power of**x10**. - Next, right-click on the mouse and select
**Format Cells**from the menu.

- After that, a window named
**Format Cells**will open up. - Now, give a tick on
**Superscript**and do not change the other parameters. - Then, pressÂ
**OK.**

** **

- Therefore, the
**C5**cell is formatted to**x10^3**format.

- Similarly, do the same formatting for the other scientific notations.
- Finally, all the scientific notations are converted into
**x10^3Â**format.

### 3. Insert User-Defined Function to Show x10 to the Power of 3 Format in Excel

Inserting the** user-defined function**, we can easily display the **x10^3** format in Excel. We will use the following figure for demonstrating this method.

Letâ€™s follow the steps to convert scientific notation to **x10^3** format.

**STEPS:**

- First, you have to select
**Visual Basic**from the**DeveloperÂ**tab.

- After that,
**Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications**window will open up. - Then, select
**Module**from the**InsertÂ**tab.

- Now, write the following code in the module:

```
Function Scientific(Value, Power)
X = Value / (10 ^ Power)
Scientific = Format(X, "0.00") + " x 10^" + Str(Power)
End Function
```

- After that, return to the dataset.
- Now, select the
**C5**cell.

- After selection, write the following formula in the cell:

`=Scientific(B5,3)`

- Now, pressÂ
**Enter.Â** - Therefore, the scientific notation of
**B5**cell is converted into**x10^3**format in the**C5**cell.

** **

- After that, drag the formula from
**C6**to**C8**cells with the help of**AutoFill**.

- Finally, all the scientific notations are converted into
**x10^3Â**format.
