My problem states the mass of the electron is 9.10939 x10-31kg. It wants me to express the mass of the electron to 1, 2, 3, and 4 significant figures. I don't need just the answer but an explaination on how to arrive at the answer.

    Two s.f.
    9.1
    Three s.f.
    9.11
    Four s.f.
    9.109
    Five s.f.
    9.1094
    Six s.f.
    9.10938
    All have the x 10^-31 kg following the number. Do you see how this was done.
    Here is a site to give you some reading about s.f.
