[Biology]  The number of hairs on a human head is about 100,000 – 150,000.

[EECS]  100K(W) is one of standard numerical values for resistors (of tolerance class 5%)

[Game]  The minimum cash value on the “Wheel of Fortune” is currently (U.S.) \$300.  The top values if currently \$2,500 for round 1, \$3,500 for rounds 2 and 3 and \$5,000 for round 4 until the end of the game. The highest cash value in the special prize is \$10,000.  A player needs \$250 in cash during the current round to buy a vowel. In the Bonus round, the minimum cash prize is currently \$25,000 and the maximum is \$100,000.

[Language]: Roman numerals: C-bar or (C) = 100,000 & C = 100.

[Math.]  A power of 10 that can be represented as the product of 2 numbers, which have no digit 0: 105 = 100,000 = 25×55 = 32×3125.

[Measure]  The standard atmospheric pressure at sea level is 1 atm (atmosphere) = 1,013.25 millibars = 29.921 inches of mercury (inHg).

Units for pressure measures:

1 atm (atmosphere) = 1013.25 millibars = 101,325 N/m2 (pascals) = 1033.227 g/cm2 = 10,332.27 kg/m2 = 760 mmHg (torrs) = 29.921 inHg = 14.696 lb/inch2 (psi) &

1 bar = 105 N/m2 (pascals) = 106 dynes/cm2 (cgs bars).

[Measure]  For U.S. natural gas, 1 therm = 100,000 Btus (British thermal units).

[Measure]  1 N = 100,000 dynes. (Units for force measures).

[Money]  The U.S. \$100,000 bill figures the portrait of the 28th U.S. President Woodrow Wilson.On the back is the ornate ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND. This bill is for use only in transactions between Federal Reserve System and the Treasury Department. (In fact, it is the gold certificate, series 1934).

[Money]  The amount (U.S.\$) covered/guaranteed by the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) over a U.S. commercial bank personal account.

[Science]  1 gauss = 100,000 gammas & 1 Tesla = 10,000 Gauss = 109 gammas. (Units for magnetic field strength measures).

[Science]  1 N (Newton) = 100,000 dynes. (Units for force measures).
