Ah okay I see how it works !

So if I have volume of 32.32313242

uncertainty is 32.000000005 ???
Uncertainty of a burette is +-0.05, so percentage uncertainty with one reading is ( (0.05 x 2) / 32.32414242 ) x100 =0.309 %(3sf)

Oh I made an exagguration here What if there's a burette which gave me such an accurate volume, then wouldn't it's uncertainty be +-00.000000005

All the burettes I've ever used have been to the nearest 0.1 which means that their uncertainty is +-0.05

Haha technically yes but it's very unlikely that they'll give you one like that in the exam - calculations might be minute!

Do I need to learn how to name transition metals with oxidation state less than zero?

Does nitrous acid react with HCl to produce a diazo compound with all amine groups or only those bonded to benzene?

I can't sleep at all and I have to be up by 4 and a half hours ;_;
Can someone help clear my doubts regarding percentage errors? For example if they said a thermometer to the nearest 0.1, will the accuracy be +\- 0.05?

If you would get a result of lets say 14.3 for example accuracy will be 0.5

0.05 is for a burette.... because you could get a reading of 24.94 for example
