Every measurement has a measurement uncertainty. Discuss how precise and accurate measurement can be achieved in spite of the inherent measurement uncertainty. You could use either of the two options given below.
• Take a ruler and measure the height of the textbook three times. Record the three measurements, and discuss the uncertainty in your measurements. Remember to report the smallest markings on your ruler.
• Take an egg and a measure the weight of the egg three times. Record the three measurements, and discuss the uncertainty in your measurements. Remember to report the smallest markings or “resolution” on your scale.

Why don't you simply follow the instructions? The problem tells you what to do.

Take an egg and measure the weight of the egg three times. Record the three measurements. Explain the uncertainty in your measurements. Remember to report the smallest markings or "resolution" on your scale.
