SigFigs

Postby Frenz Cabison 1B » Sat Dec 09, 2017 3:58 pm

What are the rules for determining the significant figures in pH or pOH? It is mentioned last night during the review session that only decimals in pH/pOH count for significant figures. Is this correct?

The TAs told us (well I wasn't at the review session) not to worry about sig figs. Of course this doesn't mean write out all the numbers of the answer, but do it as many as required. And try not to round before coming to your final answer.
