30. On December 11, 1998, the Mars Climate Orbiter was launched on a 760 million mile journey to the Red Planet. On September 23, 1999, a final rocket firing was to put the spacecraft into orbit, but it disappeared. An investigation board concluded that NASA engineers failed to convert the rocket’s thrust from pounds force to newtons (the unit used in the guidance software), causing the spacecraft to miss its intended 140–150 km altitude above Mars during orbit insertion, instead entering the Martian atmosphere at about 57 km.

The know is the quantities that are known, either through explicit statement of the problem or through your background knowledge. Write these down next. They may be graphical sketches or schematic figures as well as numbers or principles.

These rules are actually the result of strict mathematical understanding of the propagation of errors due to arithmetical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Rule 1 is for addition and subtraction. Rule 1 The sum or difference of two values should contain no significant figures farther to the right of the decimal place than occurs in the least precise number in the operation. 10 There are many good web sites on the Internet that deal with this concept. html 11 The word “precision” has a specific meaning: it refers to how many times using independent measurements we can reproduce the number.
