Physical properties you can measure

  1. 1. Physical Properties of Matter
  2. 2. Physical Properties you can measure • Temperature is a measure of how warm something is. • A thermometer is used to measure temperature.
  3. 3. Physical Properties you can measure • A common thermometer has liquid inside a glass tube. • When the liquid gets colder, it takes up less space (goes down) • When the liquid gets warmer, it takes up more space (goes up)
  4. 4. Physical Properties you can measure • Temperature is measured in degrees Farenheit (0F) and degrees Celcius (0C). • Different numbers for the same temperature.
  5. 5. Physical Properties you can measure • Mass is the amount of matter that makes up an object. • Mass is measured in grams (g) and kilograms (kg) • You can use a pan balance or triple beam balance to measure mass.
  6. 6. Physical Properties you can measure • Mass is the amount of matter that makes up an object. • Mass is measured in grams (g) and kilograms (kg) • You can use a pan balance or triple beam balance to measure an objects mass.
  7. 7. Physical Properties you can measure • Weight is the pull of gravity on an object’s mass. • A spring scale can be used to measure weight.
  8. 8. Physical Properties you can measure • The basic unit of weight is the newton (N) • However, in everyday life weight is given measurements in grams and kilograms, just like mass.
  9. 9. Physical Properties you can measure • This is because on Earth, an object’s mass and weight are about the same. • That is because the pull of gravity is nearly the same everywhere on Earth.
  10. 10. Physical Properties you can measure • The weight of an object is equal to the weight of all of it’s parts. • The sum of the parts is equal to the whole.
