Marking of Assignment/Sig Figs for Intermediate Steps

Post by 11rjjl on Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:04 am

Hi Professor Hanes,
I noted on the assignment that was just handed back that you commented multiple times on my use (or rather, the lack) of significant figures for values in intermediate steps (such as the value of 'w', which I wrote 10 sig figs, then used to find 'K' for question 12 on page 389). I was wondering whether or not this is actually an issue and will get marks deducted (future assignments, midterm, final exam) since the value is not formally presented in the final answer, which takes significant figures into consideration? Thanks.
