    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the uncertainty in 5.00mm measured by an analog device?

    2. Relevant equations
    No equations, Uncertainty and error analysis question

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that the uncertainty is half the smallest division but i cant figure out what is the uncertainty and how to keep the same number of significant figures!
