What is the difference between 5.0g and 5.00g? Plz explain in simple language.

5.0g and 5.00g are different because they contain different numbers of significant figures. 5.0 grams means that the measurement or value is correct within +- 0.1g. On the other hand, 5.00 means that the value is correct within +-0.01g.

5.00 is more accurate than 5.0, because it goes to the 100ths. Engineering wise you round up numbers to the 10ths .
