Search for a word on a specific line

Every vimmer knows that you can use the / command to search for text in a file. But do you, as a vimmer, know that you can search for a word on a specific line?


If line 10 is:

The sun is massive.

Then with the /\%10lmassive command, the cursor will land on the m in that sentence.
