# The accuracy in the measurement of speed of light measured as $3.00\times { 10 }^{ 8 }\ m/s$ is :

$\dfrac { 1 }{ 3 }\%$

##### SOLUTION
Accuracy is defined as the possible error in the calculation.
Now, speed of light here is measured as $3.00\times { 10 }^{ 8 }$ which is measured up to $0.01\times { 10 }^{ 8 }$
Thus accuracy, in percentage $= \dfrac { 0.01\times { 10 }^{ 8 } }{ 3.00\times { 10 }^{ 8 } } \times 100 = \dfrac { 1 }{ 3 }$%
