    Scientific notation makes unnecessary the writing of Avogadro's number like this:

    602,214,076,000,000,000,000,000

    [Lord Trollington: It also means they don't have to count so many zeros when reading big numbers.]

    Scientific notation is for lazy scientists to not have to write so many numbers when they get to big.
