in the paper we consider the nullification number of small knots with at most 9 crossings. We establish two inequalities (Corollary 2.1) relating the nullification number to other knot invariants and properties of the knot diagram. We show that these inequalities allow us to settle the nullification number for all of the 84 prime knots with at most 9 crossings.
