#1.5# x #10^-3# kg

Explanation:

  1. Start by moving the decimal until there is only 1 digit in front of
    it.
    => Move three times to the right.
  2. Figure out the value on the exponent.
    Since we moved the decimal to the right, our exponent sign will be negative .
    Since we moved the decimal three times, the number will be 3 .
    => Exponent = #10^-3#
