Physics

Determine the number of significant figure in the following.
$$0.2370$$ m


SOLUTION
The given quantity is 0.2370$$g{ cm }^{ -3 }.$$
For a number with decimals, the trailing zeroes are significant. Hence, besides digits, 2,3and7,0 that appears after the decimal point is also a significant figure.
$$\therefore$$ There are 4 significant figures

Q2 Single Correct Medium
The resistance of a metal is given by $$R = V/I$$, where $$V$$ is potential difference and $$I$$ is the current. In a circuit, the potential difference across resistance is $$V = (8 \pm 0.5)V$$ and current in resistance, $$I = (4 \pm 0.2)\mathring{A}$$. What is the value of resistance with its percentage error?
  • A. $$(2 \pm5.6\%)$$
  • B. $$(2 \pm0.7\%)$$
  • C. $$(2 \pm35\%)$$
  • D. $$(2 \pm11.25\%)$$
