  44. 44. 1. Tools: ruler, metre rule, measuring tape 2. Measuring the length of a straight line: – Using metre rule or a ruler – Correct position of eye (to avoid parallax error) syamsensei@gmail.com 45
  45. 45. 3. Measuring the length of a curve: a) Using a ruler and a piece of thread • • • • A knot is tied at the end of a thread The thread is stretched along the curve carefully Make a mark at the end of the curve Stretch the thread along the ruler to obtain the length b) Using an opisometer syamsensei@gmail.com 46
  46. 46. • Measuring the diameter of a spherical object: – Using two wooden blocks and a ruler – Using a set-square and a ruler syamsensei@gmail.com 47
  47. 47. • Measuring the diameter of an object: – The external diameter is measured using external calipers and a ruler – The internal diameter is measured using internal caliper and a ruler. syamsensei@gmail.com 48
  48. 48. • Measuring the thickness of an object: – The thickness of a piece of paper can be determined by measuring the thickness of a stack of papers and dividing the value of number of sheets of paper. Thickness of a single sheet Thickness of a stack of paper Number of sheets syamsensei@gmail.com 49
  49. 49. – The thickness of a glass tube can be measured by taking the difference between its external and internal diameter. Thickness of glass External diameter - internal diameter 2 syamsensei@gmail.com 50
  50. 50. • Area is the total surface covered by an object. • The SI unit is square metre (m2). • Regular-shaped areas can be calculated using Mathematical formula. (next slide) syamsensei@gmail.com 51
  51. 51. syamsensei@gmail.com 52
  52. 52. Irregular-shaped areas can be estimated by using a graph paper. – Trace the object on the graph paper. – Estimate the area by counting the number of full squares, half full squares and more than half full squares (tick the squares) – Area of the object is estimated by multiplying the number of squares with the area of one square. – The area can be estimated more accurately with syamsensei@gmail.com 53 smaller squares.
  53. 53. • Volume of an object is the total space occupied by the object. • The SI unit is cubic metre (m3). • It also can be measured in millilitre (ml). • The apparatus: measuring cylinder, burette and pipette. 1 ml = 1 cm3 1 l = 1000 cm3= 1000 ml 1 m3= 1 000 000 cm3 = 1 000 000 ml syamsensei@gmail.com 54
  54. 54. • Measuring volumes of liquids – The volume must be taken at the meniscus level of the liquid. – Use a piece of white paper to enable the meniscus to be seen clearly. – The eye is positioned at the same level of the meniscus to avoid parallax error. syamsensei@gmail.com 55
  55. 55. • Measuring volumes of solids – The volume of regular-shaped and irregular-shaped can be measured using water displacement method. – The object to be measured must be submerged in the measuring cylinder filled with water. – The volume of the water displaced is the volume of the object. syamsensei@gmail.com 56
  56. 56. – The volume of a solid can also be measured using a displacement can or a Eureka can. – The volume of the water that flows out from the can is the volume of the solid measured. syamsensei@gmail.com 57
  57. 57. – The volume of a light object can be measured with the aid of a weight, for example, a stone. – The stone which is tied to the cork enables the cork to be submerged in the water. syamsensei@gmail.com 58
  58. 58. MEASURING TEMPERATURE 1. Temperature is the degree of of hotness or coldness of a substance. 2. The S.I unit for temperature is Kelvin (K). Normally temperature is measured in degree Celsius (°C). 3. The temperature of a liquid is measured by using a laboratory thermometer. 4. Pure water boils at 100°C and freezes at 0°C under normal condition. 5. The average body temperature is 36.9°C. 6. The temperature of our body is measured by using a clinical thermometer. syamsensei@gmail.com 59
  59. 59. 1. In the past, different units were used by different people for measuring for measuring the same basic quantity. 2. Using different units gives rise to several problem such as; a) It is difficult to make comparisons b) Foreign tourists may not understand the units used in the countries they visit. syamsensei@gmail.com 61
  60. 60. Basic quantity Length Unit used • Inch, foot, yard, cubit, mile • Centimetre, metre, kilometre. 1 inch = 2.54 cm 1 foot = 12 inches = 0.3048 m 1 yard = 0.9144 m 1 mile = 1609 m Mass • Ounce, pound • Tahil, kati • Gram, kilogram 1 ounce = 28.35 g 1 pound = 0.4536 kg 1 kati = 16 tahils syamsensei@gmail.com 62
  61. 61. 3. The use of standard units in measurements is very important to scientist and people who import and export goods. 4. Using standard units enable scientists; a) To understand one another’s measurement and make accurate comparisons, b) To communicate and understand one another’s experiment and research, c) To exchange information, knowledge and technology d) To avoid confusion. syamsensei@gmail.com 63
