Homework Help: 8th grade physical science

Posted by Evangeline on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 3:34pm.

A student measured the mass of an object and obtained the following results: 10.1 g, 11.0 g, and 10.5 g. The actual mass of the object was 10.6 g.

a. What should the student report as the mass of the object?

My answer: The student should report the mass as 10.5, because that is the average.

Does that sound correct? Also:

c. Was the student's mass measurement accurate? Explain your answer.

I'm not exactly sure how to answer this one or what they mean. Please help if you can! Thanks in advance.
