### 06 Ps300 Making Measurements & Using The Metric System Notes Ke

1. 1. Making Measurements & Using the METRIC SYSTEM Physical Science 200 p.204-205
2. 2. Types of OBSERVATIONS <ul><li>Quantitative: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tells us how many. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describes “Quantity” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describes observations with numbers . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Qualitative: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tells us about it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describes “Quality” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describes observations with words. </li></ul></ul>
3. 3. Qualitative Vs. Quantitative <ul><li>His shirt is red. </li></ul><ul><li>There are 2 apples left. </li></ul><ul><li>The table is 5 meters long. </li></ul><ul><li>A blue crystal formed on the bottom of our 100mL beaker. </li></ul><ul><li>Her shirt is 100% cotton. </li></ul>
4. 4. What are units? <ul><li>Steve has 10. </li></ul><ul><li>There are 43.6 of salt. </li></ul><ul><li>Numbers do not make sense if there is no unit. </li></ul><ul><li>A unit tells us what the number measures. </li></ul><ul><li>In science class there are NO NAKED NUMBERS- make them appropriate with a unit! </li></ul>
5. 5. Precision Vs. Accuracy <ul><li>Precision is how closely repeated measurements match each other . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If you can measure something 1000 times and every time you get the same measurement, you are precise. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Accuracy is how closely a measurement matches the correct or expected value . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If you measure something very closely to the measurement that it is supposed to be, you are accurate. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A ball player's height can be measured precisely, but still not be accurate. </li></ul>
6. 6. How tall is that horse? <ul><li>In the past it was common to measure the height of a horse in hands. </li></ul><ul><li>Measure the height of your desk in hands and write it below: </li></ul><ul><li>Is this a good system for measuring? </li></ul>
7. 7. The International System of Units <ul><li>ALL SCIENTISTS us the International System of Units. </li></ul><ul><li>We abbreviate it as SI. </li></ul><ul><li>Some good things about measuring in SI: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is based on multiples of 10 . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There are no fractions- we use decimals in the metric system. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All scientists use the International System of Units. </li></ul></ul>
8. 8. Who uses the SI system? <ul><li>In everyday life, just about everyone except for US! </li></ul><ul><li>These countries do not use the metric system: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The United States of America </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Liberia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Myanmar </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ALL SCIENTISTS IN THE WORLD USE THE SI SYSTEM OF MEASUREMENT! </li></ul>
9. 9. What are prefixes? <ul><li>Pre means “before” </li></ul><ul><li>A prefix is a small part of a word that comes before the word. </li></ul><ul><li>Metric prefixes equal a number. </li></ul>
10. 10. Common Metric Prefixes 0.000 000 001 or 10 -9 n nano- 1 000 000 000 or 10 9 G Giga- 1 000 000 or 10 6 M Mega- 0.001 (one thousandth) m milli- 0.01 (one hundredth) c centi- 0.1 (one tenth) d deci- 10 da deka- 100 h hecto- 1000 k kilo- Meaning Symbol Prefix

12. 13. Adding prefixes <ul><li>When we measure, we can add a prefix to change the value. </li></ul><ul><li>1 nanosecond = how many seconds? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Find nano- on your chart. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What does it mean? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>1 nanosecond = 10 -9 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>1 kilometer = 1000 meters </li></ul><ul><li>1 milligram = 0.001 grams </li></ul>
13. 14. Rules for writing metric symbols <ul><li>Do not use a period. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>7 s [not 7sec.] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Leave a space. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>6 kg [not 6kg] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Do not add an s to the symbol. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>10 Kilometers = 10 km [not 10 kms] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Do not capitalize, unless it is supposed to be capital. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Milliliter = ml [not Ml] </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Do not use p for per. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>miles per hour = mi/hr [not mph] </li></ul></ul>
14. 15. Write the correct units <ul><li>mm = millimeter </li></ul><ul><li>mg = milligrams </li></ul><ul><li>L = liter </li></ul><ul><li>Mg = Megagram </li></ul><ul><li>m = meter </li></ul><ul><li>dam = decameter </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>g = gram cm = centimeters ns = nanosecond </li></ul>

18. 19. Measuring LENGTH <ul><li>The SI base unit of measurement for length is the METER . </li></ul><ul><li>1 meter = 1m </li></ul><ul><li>Your desk is about one meter tall. </li></ul><ul><li>You can use a METRIC RULER or a METERSTICK to measure length. </li></ul>
19. 21. Other units of length <ul><li>If you wanted to measure between cities, you would use KILOMETERS. </li></ul><ul><li>A kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters. </li></ul><ul><li>If you wanted to measure small lengths, you would use a centimeter or a millimeter. </li></ul><ul><li>There are 100 cent imeters in a meter. </li></ul><ul><li>Just like there are 100 cent s in a dollar. </li></ul><ul><li>There are 1000 millimeters in a meter. </li></ul>
20. 22. SURFACE AREA <ul><li>Surface area is the space that a surface covers. </li></ul><ul><li>If you wanted to buy carpet or floor tile, you will have to know the SURFACE AREA of the floor. </li></ul>
21. 23. Calculating SURFACE AREA <ul><li>To find the area of a rectangle, multiply length X width. </li></ul><ul><li>AREA = Length X Width </li></ul><ul><li>What is the area of this rectangle? </li></ul><ul><li> 10cm </li></ul><ul><li>5cm </li></ul><ul><li>A = L X W </li></ul><ul><li>= 10 cm X 5 cm </li></ul><ul><li>= 50 cm 2 </li></ul>
