Homework #1.7

Postby 804991762_4A » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:25 pm

In question 1.7 in the textbook at asks, to calculate the wavelength.
My answer was 1.49x10^-10, but the correct answer is 1.5x10^10. Does anyone know if we have to round up, or can we leave it just like that?

This is more of a question with sigfigs. Since we have not formally talked about sigfigs in lecture, I do not think the rounding matters for now. Also, be careful of the negative signs in your exponents!

2.0 and 7.1 both have two sig figs. Usually you determine the number of sig figs based on the given numbers. It is based on the lowest number of sig figs
