Determine the accuracy of each measurement; that is, give the number of significant digits for each measurement:
To calculate: The number of significant digits for measurement .
The provided measurement is .
Rules to find the number of significant digits in a number,
1. Every non-zero digits in a measurement is significant.
2. Zeros between two significant digits are significant.
3. If a number has zero which is tagged by a bar above it then it represents a significant digit.
4. Trailing zeros after the significant digit and decimal are significant.
5. Trailing zeros in a whole number are not significant.
6. In the measurement of decimal number, zeros to the left which is less than one are not significant.
Consider the measurement,
