In fact, we must reduce the answer to only two significant figures, since that's how many 22 has. The answer, K, must be truncated to 82 ml C/g to reflect the 2 significant figures in the D value. Problem : Silver has a density of 10.5 g/mL at 25 C. What is the mass of 16 mL of silver? However if 16 mL was a measured value, it has only 2 significant figures. Therefore the final answer must be 170 g. Since there is ambiguity as to whether the final zero here is significant or not, the answer is best expressed: 1.7 x 102 g....
