# Physics-Extension of a spring to nearest mm watch

1. Hello!

I calculated my mean extension value for a spring when mass is loaded onto a spring and measured the extension in cm. I got 2.6cm as the extension.

But I was asked to calculate it to the nearest mm!
What is 2.9cm to the nearest mm? Also what is 14.9cm to nearest mm?

Thanks,
Anna.

As, 0.1 cm = 1 mm, 2.9cm and 14.9cm are 2.9cm and 14.9cm respectively.
Had it been 14.666666...cm then to the nearest mm it would be 14.7cm.
