Which oF the Following is the correct choice For recording the density oF ethanol? 1. 0 . 789 ± 0 . 002 g/mL correct 2. 0 . 790 ± 0 . 002 g/mL 3. 0 . 788 ± 0 . 002 g/mL 4. 0 . 7887 ± 0 . 002 g/mL 5. 0 . 789 ± 0 . 0023 g/mL Explanation: 0 . 788 7 ± 0 . 002 384 = 0 . 789 ± 0 . 002 g / mL The frst whole number in the standard deviation determines how many sig. fgs. the answer will have. The frst number in the std. deviation is 0.002; this tells us that the variability occurs at the thousandths place in the average oF the measurements. This means
