DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Scientific Notation Notes

  • Scientific Notation
    • Measurement
      • Two parts
        • Number
        • Unit
      • We work with really large and small numbers
  • Scientific Notation
    • Coefficient (6.022) followed by a base (10) followed by an exponent (23)
    • If the exponent is positive then the number is greater than one
    • If it is negative then it is a decimal
    • The coefficient must be between 1 and 9, inclusive
    • Sometimes in science we use spaces instead of commas
    • After every third number
  • Accuracy vs Precision
    • Accuracy is how close a measurement is to its true value
    • Precision is the ability to repeat a measurement
    • In lab, she wants us to be precise
    • If you are precise then that means it is most likely the fault of the instrument
    • Being precise is extremely important in lab
    • Accepted value is the experimentally proven true value
    • The boiling point of water is 100 C
    • The reference value
    • The book value
    • It is consistent and it is always true
    • Experimental value is the value that you get in lab
    • That is when a person runs a lab and they get a value for something
    • Percent Error is the 1) x 100% (A-E)/(A)
  • Percent Error Problem
    • Lisa weighed a copper cylinder to be 46.83g. The correct mass of the cylidner is 48.32 g. Calculate the percent error.
    • The percent error in this case would be roughly 3.08%
  • Significant Figures
    • Reporting a measurement
    • Significant figures
    • When we take a measurement, we always take it to the precision of the instrument plus one more
    • For a ruler, we would use it to the second decimal place
    • With the thermometers in the lab, we would have to measure to the first decimal place
    • Significant Figures include all of the certain digits in the measurement plus the one that is uncertain.
    • Rules for significant figures
    • The answer can only be as accurate as the device that took the measurement
    • All nonzero digits are significant
    • Captive Zeros are significant (0s that have numbers around it (it is in the middle))
    • 20.55 would be 4 and 200.05 would be 5
    • Leading 0s are not significant
    • 0.00253 would be 3 and 0.0305 would be 3
    • Trailing 0s are significant when there is a decimal point
    • 200.00 would have 5, 40.50 would have 4, 3400 would have 2, and 0.050600 would have 5
    • Sometimes you would have to use scientific notation to get the correct number of significant figures
    • Exact numbers have an infinite amount of significant figures
    • conversion factors
    • constants
    • number of desks in the row would be exactly 5 and so it would have in infinite amount of significant figures
1) |accepted value - experimental value|)/(accepted value
