So, we have a=c and b=c ; therefore a =b 100,000 microns = 1,000,000,000 angstroms Therefore, 1 micron = 10,000 angstroms. (Cancel out 5 zeros from both sides). Option D.

Kudos for a correct solution. \(\frac{1,000,000,000}{100,000} =10,000\) D

Kudos for a correct solution. Answer=D 100,000 microns=1,000,000,000 angstroms Therefore, Angstroms/microns=10,000

Kudos for a correct solution. Given that 100,000 microns = 1 decimeter So, 1 micron = (1 * 1)/100,000 = 1/100,000 decimeter Also, 1 decimeter = 1,000,000,000 angstorm So, 1/100,000 decimeter = [(1/100,000) * 1,000,000,000]/1 = 10,000 Hence option (D).

Kudos for a correct solution. In Our School days we use to solve wavelength questions through (for physics lover) 1A10^(10)m 1 micron 106(6)m so if we divide one by another we will get 1 micron 10^4 angstrom

100,000 microns = 1 dec 1,000,000,000 angstroms = 1 dec
stripe of 5 0's in micron/dec line stripe of 5 0's in the angstrom/dec line
You are left with 4 0's = 10,000
D.

Converting the given information in exponent form & rewriting \(10^5 microns = 10^9 angstroms\) 1 micron \(= 10^{95} = 10000\) angstroms Answer = D

Micron=Decimeter=Angstroms
\(1*10ˆ5=1=1*10ˆ9\) or \(1=1*10ˆ9/1*10ˆ5=1*10ˆ9ˆ5=1*10ˆ4=10000\)

100,000 microns = 1,000,000,000 angstroms so 1 micron = 10,000 angstroms
