- Homework Statement:
- I am doing a lab and the measurements I took are from a meter stick. It should be to 2 decimal places (e.g. 10.00cm, 16.38cm, 29.10cm). For my calculations, I need to put the data into meters. As a result, would it be to 4 digits after the decimal?

- Relevant Equations:
- Significant Figures

e.g. 10.00cm = 0.0010 m, 16.38cm = 0.1638 m, 29.10 cm = 0.2910 m

Or, would the sig figs for the meters be to 2 digits after the decimal (e.g. 16.38 cm = 0.16 m)

Or, would the sig figs for the meters be to 2 digits after the decimal (e.g. 16.38 cm = 0.16 m)
