Solution 44P

Here we have to find out the significant zeros from each number.There are few rules to find out the significant figures. These are

1. When zeros are present in between the nonzero digit, then zeros are considered as significant figures.
2. When zeros are in the beginning of a number, then it never be significant figures.
3. When zeros are at the end of a number and it contains decimal point, then it will considered as significant figures.

(a) 0.00010320 s

Thus, the significant not significant zeros are (b) 1,322,600,324 kg

Thus, the significant not significant zeros are 1,322,600,324 kg

(c) 0.0001240 in.

Thus, the significant not significant zeros are (d) 0.02061 m

Thus, the significant not significant zeros are Step 2 of 3

Step 3 of 3
