Sig Figs with Enthalpy

Postby Tam To 1B » Tue Jan 29, 2019 11:26 am

Do we apply the rules of sig figs when calculating enthalpy?

Yes, use sig figs at the end when you add the enthalpies. I don't think they're that strict on it though.

Sig Figs are less of a concern in 14b

Apply sig figs to enthalpy as usual.

I think you should always think about, and apply the rules for sig figs. It's a good habit.
