How To Read Scientific Instruments 1) Record the _______ digit on the instrument. 2) Then _______________ the last digit.

9
How to Count Significant Figures 1.Count all of the digits you are sure of. 2.Add the last digit you estimate.

10
Percent Error When quantities have accepted or true values, we can calculate the percent error between our measurement of the value and the accepted value with the formula

11
How to Read a Graduated Cylinder Sit the graduated cylinder on a level surface. Lower your eyes to the level of the liquid (called the meniscus). Take your reading from the bottom of the meniscus. Count all of the digits you are sure of. Add the last digit that you estimate.
