Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Stuck on Monday, February 22, 2010 at 9:08pm.

I have a question about uncertainties. For example, I have 1466.5J +/- 0.6J. Do I match the sig digs (in which case it would become 1466.5J +/- 0.60713) or do I match decimal places? It makes sense to me to match decimal places, am I right?
