- 2. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty On January 4, 2004, the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit landed on Mars. Each day of its mission, Spirit recorded measurements for analysis. In the chemistry laboratory, you must strive for accuracy and precision in your measurements. Slide 2 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 3. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Using and Expressing Measurements Using and Expressing Measurements How do measurements relate to science? Slide 3 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 4. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Using and Expressing Measurements A measurement is a quantity that has both a number and a unit. Measurements are fundamental to the experimental sciences. For that reason, it is important to be able to make measurements and to decide whether a measurement is correct.

- 5. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Using and Expressing Measurements In scientific notation, a given number is written as the product of two numbers: a coefficient and 10 raised to a power. The number of stars in a galaxy is an example of an estimate that should be expressed in scientific notation. © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall Slide 5 of 48

- 7. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error Accuracy and Precision • Accuracy is a measure of how close a measurement comes to the actual or true value of whatever is measured. • Precision is a measure of how close a series of measurements are to one another. Slide 7 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 8. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error To evaluate the accuracy of a measurement, the measured value must be compared to the correct value. To evaluate the precision of a measurement, you must compare the values of two or more repeated measurements. Slide 8 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

- 10. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error Determining Error • The accepted value is the correct value based on reliable references. • The experimental value is the value measured in the lab. • The difference between the experimental value and the accepted value is called the error. Slide 10 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 11. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error The percent error is the absolute value of the error divided by the accepted value, multiplied by 100%. Slide 11 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

- 13. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error Just because a measuring device works, you cannot assume it is accurate. The scale below has not been properly zeroed, so the reading obtained for the person’s weight is inaccurate. Slide 13 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 14. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Significant Figures in Measurements Significant Figures in Measurements Why must measurements be reported to the correct number of significant figures? Slide 14 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 15. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Significant Figures in Measurements Suppose you estimate a weight that is between 2.4 lb and 2.5 lb to be 2.46 lb. The first two digits (2 and 4) are known. The last digit (6) is an estimate and involves some uncertainty. All three digits convey useful information, however, and are called significant figures. The significant figures in a measurement include all of the digits that are known, plus a last digit that is estimated. Slide 15 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 16. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Significant Figures in Measurements Measurements must always be reported to the correct number of significant figures because calculated answers often depend on the number of significant figures in the values used in the calculation.

- 26. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Significant Figures in Calculations In general, a calculated answer cannot be more precise than the least precise measurement from which it was calculated. The calculated value must be rounded to make it consistent with the measurements from which it was calculated. Slide 26 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
- 27. 3.1 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Significant Figures in Calculations Rounding To round a number, you must first decide how many significant figures your answer should have. The answer depends on the given measurements and on the mathematical process used to arrive at the answer. Slide 27 of 48 © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall
