## Homework Statement

If I am asked to give my answer in

**acceptable SI units**and to

**3 significant figures**, how would I express my answer?

## Homework Equations

Answer: 589883.4263 J

## The Attempt at a Solution

My instinct would be to put this in KJ, but I don't know if that's an "acceptable SI unit". I can't find anything about it online. Does it have to stay in J?

If KJ I would write it as 590 KJ, right?

and if I had something like 1674.324432 J, would I express it as 1670 J or 1.67 KJ? I'm really confused.

Thanks
