15.27 sig figs

Postby sofiakavanaugh » Sat Mar 03, 2018 9:42 pm


for question 27 I got the wrong number of sig figs for each one, i got 3 sig figs since the time has 3 sig fogs and therefore so did k, but in the solution manual it keeps using two?

Well, I'm not sure if this is much help, but for part b the answer has 2 sig figs, but you couldn't really write 3 sig figs, since the answer is simply 710.

As for part c and d it might have to do with logarithmic sig fig rules?
