Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0meter stick = o.1cm vernier = 0.01 cm micrometer = 0.001cm relative uncertainity for 2cm will be for meter stick = (0.1/2 )*100% = 5% vernier = (0.01/2)*100% = 0.5% micrometer = (0.001/ 2)*100% = 0.05%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another person told me if you measure it to be 2cm with any of the above instruments then the measurement will look like this 2cm±precision or 2cm±uncertainty so report plus or minus your precision as your uncertainty.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 4 meter stick= 2cm± 0.05 vernier = 2cm± 0.005 miocrometer= 2cm± 0.0005 this means that measurements using a micrometer are more precise and accurate
