The number of significant figures in $$0.00060$$ m is:


ANSWER

2


SOLUTION
According to general rule for significant figures, zeros to the left of a significant figure and not bounded to the left by another significant figure are not significant. So for given number $$0.00060$$ only 6 and 0 after 6 will be the significant figures. Thus, it has 2 significant figures.
