Sig Figs in 11.19

Postby Esin Gumustekin 2J » Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:24 pm

For 11.19, the solution manual just gives the answers in 1 sig fig. However, shouldn't it have 2 sig figs since we are given temperature in 2 sig figs?

I feel like it should be 2 sig figs as well given the 25 degrees.

It should be two sig figs, but I wouldn't worry too much about it since we won't be penalized for improper sig figs on tests.
