Textbook Problem

Determine the accuracy of each measurement; that is, give the number of significant digits for each measurement:


To determine

To calculate: The number of significant digits for measurement 4400 Ω.


Given Information:

The provided measurement is 4400 Ω.

Formula used:

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, 4400 Ω
