Temperature

Postby Alondra Loera 1A » Tue Jul 26, 2016 10:16 pm

If we are given that the temperature is 100 degrees celsius should our answer only have 1 significant figure or do the significant figures of temperature not matter when trying to figure out how many significant figures our answer should have?

Correct 100 oC has 1 significant figure.
100. oC has 3 significant figures.
100.0 oC has 4 significant figures.
