, the units of mass are kg , and the units of distance are m . For this equation to have consistent units, the units of G must be which of the following? ANSWER: Part B One consequence of Einstein's theory of special relativity is that mass is a form of energy. This mass- energy relationship is perhaps the most famous of all physics equations:

E = mc 2 , where m is mass, c is the speed of the light, and E is the energy. In SI units, the units of speed are m/s . For the preceding equation to have consistent units (the same units on both sides of the equation), the units of E must be which of the following? ANSWER: #4 Part A To seven significant digits, the mass of a proton is 1.672623 × 10 27 kg . Which of the following choices demonstrates correct rounding? ANSWER: Part B To eight significant digits, Avogadro's constant is 6.0221367 × 10 23 mol 1 . Which of the following choices demonstrates correct rounding? ANSWER: Part C The distance between point A and point B is given as 20000m. According to the significant digits convention used in Mazur's Principles and Practice of Physics , how many significant digits is this distance given to?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
