Click to see full answer.
Also, how many significant figures can you justify in your conversion factor?
two significant figures
how many significant figures does 10.0 have? two
Beside this, do sig figs matter in dimensional analysis?
Because there is no uncertainty, exact numbers have an infinite number of significant figures, and they do not affect the significant figures of the final answer when they are used in a calculation. would determine the significant figures of the conversion factor (3 sig. figs.).
How do exact numbers affect significant figures?
00250 has two significant figures. 005.00 x 10¯4 has three. Exact numbers, such as the number of people in a room, have an infinite number of significant figures. Therefore, if a number is exact, it DOES NOT affect the accuracy of a calculation nor the precision of the expression.
