Graphite is made up of layers of graphene. Each layer of graphene is about 200 picometers, or 200 * 10^-12 meters, thick. 

How many layers of graphene are there in a 1.6-millimeter-thick piece of graphite? Express your answer in scientific notation.

1.6 mm = .0016 m

 

.0016 m / (200x 10-12 m/layer) = 8 000 000 layers = 8 x 106  layers
