In class we all measured a sheet of paper with a meter stick.
We measured it in meters, and guessed about what the size is in meters. Then we did the same with decimeters, centimeters and millimeters.
The measurements we got were .3 meters, 2.8 decimeters, 27.9 centimeters, and 279.0 millimeters.
We have this all on a table that we wrote down ourselves. This table contains the significant figures of each measurement and the certainty of each measurement.
Now, our homework is to create a lab report using this data.
On another sheet of paper, we wrote:
Lab exercise #1
Title: Measurement and precision
Data and results:
We're supposed to fill in the blanks using our data from measuring the sheet of paper.
I honestly have no idea what to do.
I would have asked the teacher, but I didn't realize this was homework until I got home and was looking over my notes.
Anyone know how I could fill in those blanks?
