Hey I dont want to loose points for this primary question, could someone please go over my answers. Thanks!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1. Perform the following operations and write your answers with appropriate

number of significant figures: (a) 589.01−89.020 (b) 1.0×9.00 (c) 180 /pi

(d) 180.0 /pi (e)3.901x10^{-5}+ 1.0x10^{-7}

2. Perform the following unit conversions and express the answer in scientific

notation: (a) 0.510 kg to g (b) 92 mi to km (c) 3 0.50 m to 3 cm (d) 15 μs to ms

(e) 60.0 km/h to m/s

3. The attempt at a solution

a) 589.01-89.020 = 499.99

b) 1.0 x 9.00 = 9.0

c) 180/ Π = 57

d) 180.0/Π = 57.30

e) 3.901 x 10^-5 + 1.0 x 10^-7 = 0.00004

2. a) 0.510kg x 1000g/1kg= 5.1 x 10^{2}g

b) 92 mi x 1.609344km/1mi= 1.48059 x 10^{2}km

c) 0.50m^{3}x 1 000 000cm^{3}/ 1m^{3}= 5 x 10^{5}cm^{3}

d) 15μs x 1ms/0.001 μs = 1.5 x 10^{-2}ms

e) 60.0km/1hour = 65000m/3600 sec = 1.805556 x 10^{1}m/s

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
