13. You measure the mass of a 0.500 kg (500 g) standard on your balance four times. The following measurements result: 498 g, 501 g, 499 g, 500 g. Which of the following best describes your balance? (Points : 3)

not precise and not accurate

not precise but accurate

precise and accurate

I am not sure what the person who asked the question considers accurate and precise. One could justify different answers here.

14. None of those choices is correct. You may have failed to put a sign on an exponent. The correct value is 750 cm^3 = 750*10^-6 m^3 = 7.5*10^-4 m^3)

They asked for the answer in cubic meters.

15. 1.144 m
