# Sig Figs Application and Math - PBworks Sig Fig Math and Application Warm-Up How many sig figs are in the following digits: 62.005 0.005

9.070 890 480. And take out your HW!!! Objectives

Understand the reasons behind using sig figs is to say how uncertain we are with the materials we used Understand how to apply sig figs when measuring in the lab Apply the sig fig rules to mathematical problems Agenda

When multiplying and dividing, limit and round the least number of significant figures for any of the factors. 1.35 x 2.467 = 3.33045 1.35 has 3 sig figs 2.467 has 4 sig figs Since the lowest number is 3 sig figs, answer is: 3.33 Try On Your Own 0.021 x 3.23 x 100.1 = 150/4 = 0.021 x 3.23 x 100.1 =

6.8 150/4 = 40 More Math! When adding and subtracting, limit and round your answer to the least number of places in any of the numbers to make up your answer. 12.01 + 35.2 + 6 = 53.21 12.01 has 2 digits after decimal 35.2 has 1 digit after decimal

6 has 0 digits after decimal Since 6 does not have any digits after the number, the answer is: 53 123.2599 + 46.09 + 86.257 = 505 - 450.25 = 123.2599 + 46.09 + 86.257 = 255.61 505 - 450.25 = 55 Measurement Practice

When making a measurement in lab, the last digit is always an estimate This means that you have to estimate between the markings on the measuring instrument Each measurement should be one place lower than the smallest marking on the measuring instrument

Other Note Sig Figs and Scientific Notation 6.02 3 x 1023 sig figs Only count the numbers in front
