3. 3. Measurements are estimates<br />Exact numbers <br />Counted -- I have 3 sons<br />Defined -- 4 qt in 1 gal<br />Measured<br />“exactness” limited by measuring device, object and user<br />
4. 4. Significant figures<br />Measured and exact number<br />Exact:<br />Counted <br />13,000 people attended the conference<br />49 citizens attended the council meeting<br />Defined<br />12 in = 1 ft, 2.54 cm = 1 in <br />1 kg = 2.2 lb NOT defined – remember weight changes!!!<br />Measurements<br />All are estimates – depend on precision of device<br />
5. 5. 16 oz = 1 lb, exact -- defined<br />2.54 cm = 1 in, exaact -- defined<br />454 g = 1 lb, measured<br />1.6 km = 1 mi not exact (rounded off for convenience)<br />Actual exact number:<br />1 mi X 5280ft/mi X 12 in/ft X 2.54 cm/in = 160934 cm<br /> or 1.609344 km this would be the EXACT conversion<br />Exact or measured??<br />
6. 6. Your reading might be 3.5 cm<br />Measuring<br />Estimate an<br />Additional digit<br />If possible<br />If lines are very<br />Close together<br />May not be<br />Practical!!!<br />Your reading might be 4.55 – but on<br />A real meter stick, you probably cannot<br />Read between the mm lines<br />Your reading should be 3.0 cm<br />This means you think the real<br />Value is between 2.9 and 3.1<br />Not between 2 and 4!!<br />

25. 25. Significant Numbers in Calculations<br /><ul><li>Help you decide where to round a number from your calculator
26. 26. A calculated answer cannot be more precise than the measuring tool.
27. 27. A calculated answer must match the least precise measurement.
28. 28. Significant figures are needed for final answers from</li></ul> 1) adding or subtracting<br /> 2) multiplying or dividing<br />
29. 29. Adding and Subtracting<br /> The answer has the same number of decimal places as the measurement with the fewest decimal places.<br />25.2 gone decimal place<br />+ 1.34 gtwo decimal places<br /> 26.54 answer 26.5 one decimal place<br />
30. 30. Learning Check<br />In each calculation, round the answer to the correct number of significant figures.<br /> A. 235.05 + 19.6 + 2.1 = <br /> 1) 256.75 2) 256.8 3) 257<br /> B. 58.925 - 18.2 =<br /> 1) 40.725 2) 40.73 3) 40.7<br />Answers: a 2, b 3<br />Write vertically – calculators do not determine sig fig (84+ apps)<br />
31. 31. Multiplying and Dividing<br /> Round (or add zeros) to the calculated answer until you have the same number of significant figures as the measurement with the fewest significant figures.<br />Or report in sci notation<br />
