  10. 11. Rules for Making Calculations with Significant Figures
  11. 12. Carry out the following calculations and report your answer with the correct number of significant figures.
  12. 13. Rules for Rounding
  13. 14. Round each value to three significant figures <ul><li>23.42 m </li></ul><ul><li>0.4059 s </li></ul><ul><li>45.75 L </li></ul><ul><li>110.59 g </li></ul><ul><li>23.851 kg </li></ul>
  14. 15. Putting a number into scientific notation <ul><li>All numbers, regardless of magnitude, can be expressed in the form: N x 10 n where </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1<N<10 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>n is a positive or negative integer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>When written in standard form there must be one digit, and only one digit to the left of the decimal point in the number N. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>standard: 1.23 x 10 6 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>non-standard: 123 x 10 4 </li></ul></ul>
  15. 16. Positive Exponents <ul><li>36,600 </li></ul><ul><li>exponent of 10 is a positive whole number </li></ul><ul><li>value of the exponent = number of places the decimal point must be moved so that the notation is in standard form. </li></ul><ul><li>36,600 x 10 0 Non-standard </li></ul><ul><li>3.66 x 10 4 Standard </li></ul>
  16. 17. Negative Exponents <ul><li>0.00563 </li></ul><ul><li>exponent of 10 is a negative whole number </li></ul><ul><li>value of the exponent = number of places the decimal point must be moved so that the notation is in standard form </li></ul><ul><li>0.00563 x 10 0 Non-standard </li></ul><ul><li>5.63 x 10 -3 Standard </li></ul>
  17. 18. Write each value in scientific notation.
  18. 19. Convert to Scientific Notation <ul><li>727 m </li></ul><ul><li>17200.0 s </li></ul><ul><li>0.000984 kg </li></ul><ul><li>1.56 x 10 4 m </li></ul><ul><li>3.6 x 10 -2 kg </li></ul>Convert to Decimal Form
