Divide scientific notation tool is used to find out the division of the two numbers which are in scientific form. Division of two scientific notation two numbers always gives result in scientific form.  The division of these numbers always involve 10^ n, its result is always expressed in this form: - (x) * 10^n. Here x is any number. It can be in decimal form also but it must be in scientific notation overall.
It can be better clarified by the relevant examples. The relevant examples are given as follows:-

Question 1: Divide the following and express the result in scientific notation:
   (18 * 10^9)/ (6*10^3)

Solution: Here we need to evaluate the (18 * 10^9)/ (6*10^3).

To evaluate (18 * 10^9)/ (6*10^3) we first divide 18 by 3 and then we will divide 10^9 by 10^3.

(18 * 10^9)/ (6*10^3) = 18/6 * 10 ^9/10^3

= 3 * 10 ^ (9-3) = 3 * 10 ^ 6

Therefore the result of (18 * 10^9)/ (6*10^3) in scientific notation = 3 * 10 ^ 6
 
Question 2: Divide the following and express the result in scientific notation:-
  (9 .9 * 10^10)/ (3* 10^2)

Solution: Here we need to evaluate (9 .9 * 10^10)/ (3* 10^2)

To evaluate (9 .9 * 10^10)/ (3* 10^2), first we need to divide 9.9 by 3 and then we will divide 10^10 by 10^2

The steps are shown below:

(9 .9 * 10^10)/ (3* 10^2) = (9.9/3) * (10^10/10^2)

= 3.3 * 10 ^ (10-2)

= 3.3 * 10 ^ 8
