Sig figs???

Postby Jessica Dharmawan 1G » Fri Nov 02, 2018 9:05 pm

When there's a problem asking for the change in energy from n=3 to n=1 of a hydrogen atom, how many sig figs should our answer have, since there's only one sig fig from the given data?

You would use however many sig figs you used for your constants (h,c, etc.).
