Answer to Question #38447 in Other Chemistry for Emma
Hi. I am doing the Lab right now, and I am stuck on one question. When we report the measured value of flask as "average +/- absolute error". They require the error rounded to one digit. My error is 0.006. I do not know how to round it to one digit. Can anyone help me?
Your teacher meant 1 significant digit. In value 0.006 or 6*10^-3 there is only 1 significant digit 6. Therefore you should not round your answer - it is already rounded.
