Mhm, C Division has a blanket sig figs policy. Whether it's enforced is another story.The apparent position of star A from Earth is measured in March, and then again 6 months later in September. If the apparent position of star A changed by 0.036 arcseconds, what is the approximate distance from the sun to star A in lightyears?d (in parsecs) = 1/p (in arcseconds). p = 0.036 arcseconds. Substituting this in, we get ~27.77 parsecs. Multiply by 3.26 to get LY, giving us [b]90.55 LY[/b]. Do we need to worry about sig figs in astro?
