Get FREE Advanced Excel Exercises with Solutions!

In this article, we will learn how to convert scientific notation to x10 to power of 3 in Excel. We often need the exponential format for writing scientific papers and reports. Converting scientific format to exponential format is very easy and simple in Excel. So, without any delay, letâ€™s start the discussion.

## 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.

This formula is divided into 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.

Here, the formula is referring to the 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``````

• 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.
