Chapter 1 Lesson4

Physical Science

 There are 2 kinds of numbers: ◦ Exact: the amount of money in your account. Known with certainty.

◦ Approximate: weight, height—anything MEASURED. No measurement is perfect.

 When a measurement is recorded only those digits that are dependable are written down.

◦ If you measured the width of a paper with your ruler you might record 21.7cm. To a mathematician 21.70, or 21.700 is the same.

 21.700cm to a scientist means the measurement is accurate to within one thousandth of a cm.

 If you used an ordinary ruler, the smallest marking is the mm, so your measurement has to be recorded as 21.7cm.

 Rule: All digits are significant starting with the first non- zero digit on the left.

 Exception to rule: In whole numbers that end in zero, the zeros at the end are not significant.

 7  40  0.5  0.00003  7 x 10 5  7,000,000 11 11 11 11 11 11

 2 nd Exception to rule: If zeros are sandwiched between non-zero digits, the zeros become significant.

 3rd Exception to rule: If zeros are at the end of a number that has a decimal, the zeros are significant.

 3rd Exception to rule: These zeros are showing how accurate the measurement or calculation are.

 1.2  2100  56.76  4.00  0.0792  7,083,000,00 0 22 22 44 33 33 44

 3401  2100  2100.0  5.00  0.00412  8,000,050,00 0 44 22 55 33 33 66

 Rule: When adding or subtracting measured numbers, the answer can have no more places after the decimal than the LEAST of the measured numbers.

 2.45cm + 1.2cm = 3.65cm,  Round off to = 3.7cm  7.432cm + 2cm = 9.432 round to  9cm

 Rule: When multiplying or dividing, the result can have no more significant figures than the least reliable measurement.

 56.78 cm x 2.45cm = 139.111 cm 2  Round to  139cm 2  75.8cm x 9.6cm = ?

Have Fun Measuring and Happy Calculating!
