Which is longer?

A. 1 mile or 1 kilometer

B. 1 yard or 1 meter

C. 1 inch or 1 centimeter

1.6 kilometers

1 mile

1 yard = 0.9444 meters

1 inch = 2.54 centimeters Metric Units

The basic unit of length in the metric system in the meter and is represented by a lowercase m.

Metric Units

1 Kilometer (km) = 1000 meters 1 Hectometer (hm) = 100 meters

1 Meter = 100 Centimeters (cm) 1 Dekameter (dam) =10 meters

1 Meter = 1000 Millimeters (mm) 1 Meter = 10 Decimeters (dm)

Which is larger?

1. 1 Pound or 100 Grams

2. 1 Kilogram or 1 Pound

3. 1 Ounce or 1000 Milligrams

1 pound = 453.6 grams

100 kg = 220 pounds

1 ounce of gold = 28,349.5 milligrams Metric Units

Mass refers to the amount of matter in an object.

The base unit of mass in the metric system is the kilogram and is represented by kg.

Metric Units

1 Kilogram (kg) = 1000 Grams (g) 1 Hectogram (hg) = 100 grams

1 Gram (g) = 1000 Milligrams (mg) 1 Dekagram (dag) =10 grams

1 Gram (g) = 100 Centigrams (cg) 1 Gram = 10 Decigrams (dg)

We will be using triple-beam balances to find the mass of various objects.

The objects are placed on the scale and then you move the weights on the beams until you get the lines on the right-side of the scale to match up.

Once you have balanced the scale, you add up the amounts on each beam to find the total mass.

What would be the mass of the object measured in the picture?

_______ + ______ + _______ = ________ g Lesson 3: Lesson 3: VolumeVolume

T. Trimpe 2008 http://sciencespot.net/ English vs. Metric Units

Which is larger?

A. 1 liter or 1 gallon

B. 1 liter or 1 quart

C. 1 milliliter or 1 fluid ounce

1 gallon = 3.79 liters

It would take approximately 3 ¾ 1-liter bottles to equal a gallon.

1 fl oz = 29.573 ml

1 12-oz can of soda would equal

approximately 355 ml.

1 quart = 0.946 liters Metric Units

Volume is the amount of space an object takes up.

The base unit of volume in the metric system is the liter and is represented by L.

Metric Units

1 liter (L) = 1000 milliliters (mL)

1 milliliter (mL) = 1 cm3

1 Kiloliter (kL) = 1000 Liters (L) 1 Hectoliters (hL) = 100 Liters

1 Dekaliter (daL) =10 Liters 1 Liter (L) = 100 Centiliters (cL) 1 Liter (L) = 10 Deciliters (dL)Which is larger?

A. 1 liter or 1500 milliliters

B. 200 milliliters or 1.2 liters

C. 12 cm3 or 1.2 millilitersLiter Image: http://www.dmturner.org/Teacher/Pictures/liter.gif Measuring Volume

We will be using graduated cylinders to find the volume of liquids and other objects.

Read the measurement based on the bottom of the meniscus or curve. When using a real cylinder, make sure you are eye-level with the level of the water.

What is the volume of water in the cylinder? _____mL

What causes the meniscus?

A concave meniscus occurs when the molecules of the liquid attract those of the container. The glass attracts the water on the sides. Measuring Liquid Volume
