    smallest unit of measurement on each of these, on a meter stick its generally 1mm as long as you're using metric, not sure what the smallest unit of measurement on the other two are, but whatever that is is the precision.

    if you measure it to be 2cm with any of the above instruments then the measurement will look like this \[2cm \pm precision ~~\text{or }~~2cm \pm uncertainty\] so report plus or minus your precision as your uncertainty.
