In scientific notation, it is written as 10^{9}.
In modern (short scale) English usage, it is usually called a billion (although in long scale usage in many other languages, a billion means 1,000,000,000,000 – a million millions). The unambiguous term is a thousand million, which has the same meaning in both scales.
In South Asian English, it is known as 100 crore or 1 arab.
The term milliard can also be used to refer to 1,000,000,000; this name very often appears in other languages, e.g. Norwegian; milliard Danish: milliard, Swedish: miljard, Hebrew:milliard.
This terminology is rarely used in English outside of archaic British English. The SI prefix giga indicates 1,000,000,000 times the base unit.

Sense of scale
The facts below give a sense of how large 1,000,000,000 (10^{9}) is in the context of time according to current scientific evidence:
 10^{9} seconds is 114 days short of 32 calendar years (≈ 31.7 years).
 About 10^{9} minutes ago, the Roman Empire was flourishing and Christianity was emerging. (10^{9} minutes is roughly 1,900 years.)
 About 10^{9} hours ago, modern human beings and their ancestors were living in the Stone Age (more precisely, the Middle Paleolithic). (10^{9} hours is roughly 114,000 years.)
 About 10^{9} days ago, Australopithecus, an apelike creature related to an ancestor of modern humans, roamed the African savannas. (10^{9} days is roughly 2.7 million years.)
 About 10^{9} months ago, dinosaurs walked the Earth during the late Cretaceous. (10^{9} months is roughly 82 million years.)
 About 10^{9} years ago, the first multicellular eukaryotes appeared on Earth.
 The universe is currently thought to be about 13.7 × 10^{9} years old.
In terms of distance:
 10^{9} inches is 15,783 miles (25,400 km), more than halfway around the world and sufficient to reach any point on the globe from any other point.
 10^{9} metres is almost three times the distance from the Earth to the Moon.
 10^{9} kilometres is over six times the distance from the Earth to the Sun.
In terms of finance:
 The possession of assets with total value of 10^{9} United States dollars would place a person among the world's wealthiest individuals.
 As visualized in a work by artist Michael Marcovici, this amount of money in stacks of hundreddollar bills can fit on twelve wrapped pallets.^{[1]}
In terms of area:
 A billion square inches would be a square about one half mile on a side.
 A piece of finely woven bed sheet cloth that contained a billion holes would measure about 500 square feet (46 m^{2}), large enough to cover a moderate sized apartment.
In terms of volume:
 There are a billion cubic millimeters in a cubic meter.
 A billion grains of table salt or granulated sugar would occupy a volume of about two and a half cubic feet.
 A billion cubic inches would be a volume comparable to a large commercial building slightly larger than a typical supermarket.
In terms of natural landscape; a small mountain, slightly larger than Stone Mountain Georgia, United States, would weigh (have a mass of) a billion tons.
In terms of count:
A is a cube; B consists of 1000 cubes of type A. C consists of 1000 Bs; and D 1000 Cs. Thus there are 1 million As in C; and 1,000,000,000 As in D.
