Question

Four students measured the same line with a ruler like the one shown below. The results were as follows: 5.52 cm, 6.63 cm, 5.5, and 5.93. Even though you cannot see the line they actually measured, which of the recorded measurements are possible valid measurements for this instrument, according to its precision? Select all that apply. 1. 5.52 2. 6.63 3. 5.5 4. 5.93

1) 5.52 cm , C) 5.5 cm

Explanation:

When a measurement is carried out, in addition to the value of the magnitude, the error or uncertainty of the measurement must occur, in a direct measurement with an instrument the uncertainty is equal to the appreciation of the instrument.

Uniform see the errors by the number of significant figures days, in this cases they are two decimals for which the appreciation of the instrument ± – 0.01

now we can analyze the measurements made

1) 5.52 cm. Validate. It is a valid measurement is within the uncertainty range

2) 6.63 cm. It does not validate. It is out of the error range

3) 5.5 cm Valid. It is within the given error range,

4) 5.93 cm Not Valid. It is out of the error range.
