I typed in: 0.012x2.2x(.3x10^16-9.0x10^17)/1 and got 3.696x10^-18 (3.7x10^18)

Omg, please explain to me how you got this. I tried typing exactly what you wrote and I get a completely different answer. What am I doing wrong?

Edit: I managed to work it out correctly now. Thank you so much

You have no idea how helpful you have been to me!! Seriously thank you!

Can I ask you what units to negative powers mean? I know...
beats min^-1 basically means beats "per" minute, but I don't really understand when other units have higher negative powers e.g. um^-2

Sorry I'm pestering you so much!!
6. OCR AS BIOLOGY A (2015) - These puns are getting cornea and cornea...

This is a quiz for Biology and it is getting constantly updated so it's really great for quick fire revision and good for practice of Multiple choice questions. Although its based from the OCR Spec, it's still useful for revision because biology is simply biology... So enjoy revising!

It's no problem. I thought I submitted a reply? Guess not . Either I'll right it again... um stands for micrometers so I believe that it means micrometers squared? Although, I'm not entirely sure and I don't really get the different negative powers either...

I've had better days I think, I haven't had much time to revise for it this week as I had Maths C2 today But I'm trying not to panic.

Hope your Maths went well. I know what you mean! I haven't done much biology revision, but I feel like I know the content pretty well. I just need to practice past papers learn how to word answers, hitting all the marks available because even when I may write something that is correct, if it isn't on the mark scheme, I don't get the mark *cries*. Although, haven't had much time to do this and I have chemistry Friday morning

Yeah I admit that I haven't done near enough past papers as I probably should have by now. That's why my exam technique is lacking I've only done 2 past papers today (untimed) but am still struggling.

Oh try not to worry too much about it. Just think you have done your best and there's nothing more you can do but keep going. Try not to stay up too late either, get a good nights sleep, so you feel ready and refreshed in the morning.

Haha, I'm going to bed now, then going to try and get up early to do extra revision. I've been doing individual questions from wJEC question bank on topics that I find harder, so I haven't done any full past papers today. :P
