Four students measure the mass of an object, each using a different scale. They record their results as follows:
Student A B C D
Mass (g)49.06 49 50 49.1
E
49.061
Which student used the most precise scale?

• Physics -

Student E used the most precise scale; this can be seen by the number of digits after the decimal.
