If I define a constant like

H=10^12;

Whenever I try to print it, it shows as the whole number 1000000000000 instead of 10^12. I've tried the ScientificFormat[] command to no avail.

For instance I'd like to print the value of a constant in a PlotLabel but the whole number takes too much space.

Of course I could use add 10^Log[10,H] by hand as a string but surely there must be a simpler way.
