Friday, January 15, 2016 Exact Numbers  Significant Figures (Sig Figs) do NOT count when dealing with exact numbers.  No uncertainty; infinitely significant  Counting numbers are exact Section 2.3: Significant figures in Calculations Rule to follow: The term with the least amount of Sig. Figs. is the number you report. Is that confusing? Here is another way to think of it…. If you are dealing with two numbers, one has 4 sig figs and the other has 3, you would only use 3 numbers in your answer! This will require you to round. Rounding Examples 1. 42.1 -> 42 2. 88.67 -> 89 WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH…… Multiplication and Division The fewest # of sig figs determines what gets reported. Addition and Subtraction The number with the fewest decimal places determines the answer reported Example = 65.09 + 3.0 62.09 but 62.01 would but the reported answer due to the decimal places Practice Problems 1. 0.02050 g = 89.1304….. g/ml = 89.1 g/ml 0.000230 ml 2 2. 28.58 g = 0.222724438 g/ml = 0.22 g/ml (16g)(8.02ml) Try this one on your own! (I’ll give you the answer afterwards) 3. 75.29 g – 44.2899 g 5.05 ml Answer to # 3 75.29g – 44.2899g = 31.0001g = 31.00g = 6.16 g/ml 5.05 ml 5.05 ml 5.05 ml Prefixes Milli and micro make smaller units Examples: milligram (mg) microgram (mcg) 2.4 Prefixes and Equalities (There is a table in the textbook that gives all of the prefixes, but I will provide a few for these notes) Prefix Symbol Numerical Scientific Equality Value notation 6 6 mega M 1 000 000 10 1 Mg= 1 x 10 g kilo k 1 000 103 1km = 1 x 103 m −1 −1 deci d 0.1 10 1dL = 1 x 10 L centi c 0.01 10−2 1cm = 1 x 10−2 m milli m 0.001 −3 −3 10 1 ms = 1 x 10 s MORE TO THINK ABOUT…. 1000 mg = 1 g 1000 meters = 1 kilometer (km) 1x −3 g = 1 mg 10 0.01m = 1 cm A meter is the measure of the speed of light Important conversion to remember: 1 cc = 1 cm3 =1 mL

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."
