SI Prefixes

Here is a list of SI Prefixes that I jotted down from the web today:
10^x Prefix
1 deca
2 hecto
3 kilo
6 mega
9 giga
12 tera
15 peta
18 exa
21 zetta
24 yotta
I was looking for the name of 10^15 and stumbled upon this list.


  1. i read in banalore mirror that they want to give the prefix "hella" for 10^27

    Yup, after your comment, I did look into that. But it still has not made it to the official SI list of prefixes.


I'd love to hear from you !
