Textbook Problem

Two different measuring devices are used by students to measure the length of a metal rod. Students using the first device report its length as 0.5 m, while those using the second report 0.502 m. Can both answers be correct (choose one)? (a) Yes, because their values are the same when both are rounded to the same number of significant figures. (b) No, because they report different values.

To determine
The measurement of length of a metal rod using two different measuring device.

Explanation

Given Info: The first measurement device measured the length as 0.5m and the second measurement device measured the length as 0.502m.

Explanation
