is their any limitation of significant figures if not why

Expert Answer:

  1. Significant figure does not convey the magnitude of the reading uncertainty for any specific scale.
  2. Significant figure neglect the operator error, systematic error which occurs during the real experiments so there will be more uncertainty than what the significant figure of the measurements would suggest.
