Units for the answers

Postby Lorena Zhang 4E » Tue Oct 02, 2018 4:30 pm

Some of the solutions give the answers that convert units like kg or mg into grams. Do we have to convert the units for answers in the homework/test into more frequently used units or it is fine as long as the significant figure are right?

Normally you have to convert to the standard unit of measurement. Like grams and liters etc.

Usually the problem indicates what units should be utilized for the answer. If not, stick to your standard metric units of measurement, such as liters, grams, and meters. These are additionally the units employed in most chemistry concepts like molarity and quantum chemistry.
