Good results can always bp Qfrt a fed by f ol 1 ow I nq t h, e instructions on the exercise sheet. Rule A. In general, instruments should be read to the limits of their scales by estimating the last figure. For example, when the scale of an ammeter is graduated in amperes, it is usually possiole to estimate the tenths of a division. Al 1 observa tions and other data should tie recorded oefore any calculations are made i. e., do not record calcula tions for observations. By observations one means all quantities actually read on the instruments. Fractions should be reduced to the decimal form before recording. Oo not retain more figures in the reault than the precision of the data warrants. Students - should form the haoit at once of reject ing at each step of the work all figures which will have no influence on the reliability of the final result. Too much emphasis cannot be placed on the proper use of significant figures, for much time in computing is wasted oecause of the retention of more figures than the precision of the data will warrant. In most laooratory exercises not more than the first four signifi cant figures of any result will be correct, and often not more than three, because the apparatus cannot be made to give more accurate results. It is not considered good form to retain more than one doubtful figure so, in general, computed re sults should not contain more than five signifi cant figures, the extra figure being retained to protect the correctness of the fourth figure in the result. . A significant figure is any digit used to de note the amount of the quantity in the decimal place in which the digit stands.Consider the reading c 3.09 mf...
