Hello,

 

Yes, definitely bash can do number crunching on scientific notations. You can make your bash script even more powerful
by incorporating the use of a famous text processing utility named awk. With that you have to define fewer number of variables than you would in your bash script. For reference here is a very good site. I am giving you a link to a discussion that talks about this very issue.
 
 
Hope it helps.
 
Best Regards,
