3. 3. What is Measurement?MEASUREMENT IS A TERM WHICH DESCRIBESMEASURING SOMETHING, WHICH IS BASICALLY YOUTRYING TO FIND OUT A SPECIFIC OBJECTS’SSPECIFICATIONS. YOU ARE GOING TO FIND OUTABOUT IT IN THIS KEYNOTE.
4. 4. The Measurement World TYPES OF MEASUREMENT HOW IS MEASUREMENT USED? SYSTEMS CONNECTIONS HOW CAN BETWEEN MEASUREMENTMEASUREMENT BE A TOOL?AND MATERIALSWHEN WAS MEASUREMENT TOOLS WE USE FOR INVENTED? MEASUREMENT
5. 5. Types of Measurement Systems★THERE ARE MANY TYPES OF MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS, THE MOST COMMONTIME★TYPES:★TIME★IMPERIAL SYSTEM★METRIC SYSTEM★SI UNITS★USA SYSTEM BACK TO MENU
6. 6. The Imperial System THE ENGLISH UNITS OF MEASUREMENT WAS RENAMED THE IMPERIAL SYSTEM OF MEASUREMENT IN 1824, SO IT ORIGINALLY COMES FROM THE BRITISH. THE CONVERSIONS OF THE IMPERIAL SYSTEM:•12 INCHES=1 FOOT•3 FEET= 1 YARD•22 YARDS= 1 CHAIN•10 CHAINS=1 FURLONG•8 FURLONGS= 1 MILE (5280 METERS)•144^2 INCHES=1^2 FOOT•9^2 FEET=1^2 YARD•4840^2 YARDS= 1 ACRE•640 ACRES= 1^2 MILE t en m re su ea M of Back to Menu es p Ty to ck Ba
7. 7. TimeTIME IS THE MOST COMMONLY USED UNIT OF MEASUREMENT, AS YOUPROBABLY KNOW. IN FACT, YOU ARE MEASURING IT RIGHT NOW! HERE ARE THE CONVERSION RATES FOR TIME:•1000 MILLISECONDS=1 SECOND•60 SECONDS=1 MINUTE•1 MINUTE=0.2 DECIMAL HOURS•60 MINUTES=1 HOUR•24 HOURS=1 DAY•7 DAYS= 1 WEEK•30/31 DAYS=1 MONTH (EXCEPTION FOR FEBRUARY)•12 MONTHS=1 YEAR•52 WEEKS=1 YEAR Back to Types of•10 YEARS= 1 DECADE Measurement•100 YEARS= 1 CENTURY•1000 YEARS= 1 MILLENNIUM Back to Menu
8. 8. The Metric System THE METRIC SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY IN USE WITH ALMOST EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, THOUGH IT IS NOT YET INTERNATIONAL, AS THE IMPERIAL SYSTEM AND THE U.S.A SYSTEM IS STILL IN USE. HERE ARE THE CONVERSIONS:•10 MILLIMETERS= 1 CENTIMETER•10 CENTIMETERS= 1 DECIMETER•10 DECIMETERS= 1 METER•100 CENTIMETERS= 1 METER•10 METERS= 1 DECAMETER•10 DECAMETERS= 1 HECTOMETER•100 METERS= 1 HECTOMETER•10 HECTOMETER= 1 KILOMETER (1000 METERS)•100^2 MILLIMETERS= 1 ^2 CENTIMETER•10000^2 CM= 1^2 METER•100^2 METERS= 1 ARE•100 ARES= 1 HECTARE BACK TO TYPES OF MEASUREMENT•100 HECTARES= 1^2 KILOMETER Back to Menu
9. 9. SI Units SI UNITS STAND FOR “INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM OF UNITS”. ITWAS INVENTED BY THE CGPM IN 1960, AND IT WAS COMPLETEDBY ADDING A UNIT: MOLE IN 1971. HERE ARE THE SI BASE UNITS:•LENGTH= METERS•MASS= KILOGRAM•TIME= SECOND•ELECTRIC CURRENT= AMPERE•THERMODYNAMIC TEMPERATURE= KELVIN•AMOUNT OF SUBSTANCE= MOLE•LUMINOUS INTENSITY= CANDELA Back to Types of Measurement Back to menu
10. 10. USA SystemTHE USA SYSTEM IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE IMPERIAL SYSTEM, AS IT WAS ALSO DERIVED FROM THE ENGLISH UNITS OF MEASUREMENT. THE ONLYDIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE USA SYSTEM AND THE IMPERIAL SYSTEM ARE THE WEIGHT UNITS. THE USA SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY USED IN THE USA. Back to BACK TO TYPES OF MEASUREMENT Menu
11. 11. How is Measurement Used? ALTHOUGH YOU MIGHT NOT REALIZE IT, MEASUREMENT IS USED EVERYDAY IN OUR LIVES, AS WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DOANYTHING WITHOUT MEASUREMENT. YOU ARE USING ONE NOW: TIME. Back to Menu
12. 12. When WasMeasurement Invented? MEASUREMENT WAS INVENTED IN THE TIME OF THE INDUSVALLEY CIVILIZATION, WHICH WAS AS EARLY AS 3000 BC, AND IT HAS THRIVED EVER SINCE. GO BACK
13. 13. Measurement Tools EVERY DAY, WE USE AT LEAST 2-3 MEASURING TOOLS. I AM GOING TOGIVE YOU SOME EXAMPLES, BUT IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO COUNT ALL OF THEM.•CLOCK•WATCH•RULER•PROTRACTOR•THERMOMETER•MEASURING CUP•COMPASS•STOPWATCH•SUNDIAL•TAPE MEASURE•DEPTH GAUGE•ALTIMETER•BAROMETER•THICKNESS GAUGE Back to Menu
14. 14. Connections Between Measurement and Materials MEASUREMENT AND MATERIALS HAVE A CONNCETION, BECAUSEMATERIALS USE MEASUREMENT. THAT BEING SAID, MATERIALS CAN EXIST WITHOUT MEASUREMENT. OF COURSE, THERE ARE MANY MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS, BUT CONVERSION RATES DO EXIST./ BACK TO MENU
15. 15. How is Measurement A Tool MEASUREMENT IS A TOOL, AS IT IS USED FOR EVERYTHING. IF YOUHAVE NOT FOUND A THING THAT DOES NOT USE MEASUREMENT, THENI ADMIRE YOU FOR THIS PARTICULAR CAPABILITY. MEASUREMENT WILL BE USED FOREVER AS A TOOL TO HUMANKIND AND POSSIBLE ALIENS. Back
