Chapter 1Measurements

Prefixes and

Equalities

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Metric Prefixes

  • Increase or decrease basic unit by 10

  • Form new units larger or smaller than the basic units

  • Indicate a numerical value

    prefix=value

    1 kilometer=1000 meters

    1 kilogram=1000 grams

2) meters

B. Your mass

3) kilograms

C. The distance between two cities

3) kilometers

D. The width of an artery

1) millimeters

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Learning Check

1. A mass that is 1000 times greater than 1 gram

1) kilo2) milli3) mega

2. A length that is 1/100 of 1 meter?

1) deci2) centi3) milli

3. A unit of time that is 1/1000 of a second.

1) nanosecond 2) microsecond 3)millisecond

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Solution

1. 1) kilo

2. 2) centi

3. 3) millisecond

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Equalities

State the same measurement in two different units

length

10.0 in.

25.4 cm

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Some Metric Equalities

Length

1 m = 100 cm

Mass

1 kg = 1000 g

Volume

1 L=1000 mL

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Learning Check

A. 1000 m = 1 ___1) mm 2) km3) dm

B. 0.001 g = 1 ___ 1) mg2) kg3) dg

C. 0.1 L = 1 ___1) mL2) cL3) dL

D. 0.01 m = 1 ___ 1) mm 2) cm3) dm

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Solution

A. 1000 m = 1 ___2) km

B. 0.001 g = 1 ___ 1) mg

C. 0.1 L = 1 ___3) dL

D. 0.01 m = 1 ___ 2) cm

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Learning Check

Give the value of the following units:

A. 1 kg = ____ g

1) 10 g2) 100 g 3) 1000 g

B. 1 mm = ____ m

1) 0.001 m2) 0.01 m 3) 0.1 m

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Solution

A. 1 kg = ____ g

3) 1000 g

B. 1 mm = ____ m

1) 0.001 m

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Some American Equalities

1 ft= inches

1 lb=16 oz

1 quart = pints

1 quart=4 cups

Why are the quantities in each pair equal?

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Some American Equalities

1 ft=12 inches

1 lb=16 oz

1 quart = 2 pints

1 quart=4 cups

The quantities in each pair give the same measured amount in two different units.

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Some Metric-American Equalities

1 in.=2.54 cm

1 qt=946 mL

1 L=1.06 qt

1 lb = 454 g

1 kg=2.20 lb

Remember these for exams.

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Equalities given in a Problem

Example 1

At the store, the price of one pound of red peppers is $2.39.

Equality: 1 lb red peppers =$2.39

Example 2

At the gas station, one gallon of gas is $1.34.

Equality: 1 gallon of gas=$1.34

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Conversion Factors

Fractions in which the numerator and denominator are quantities expressed in an equality between those units

Example: 1 in. = 2.54 cm

Factors: 1 in. and 2.54 cm

2.54 cm 1 in.

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Learning Check

Write conversion factors that relate each of the following pairs of units:

A. Liters and mL

B. Hours and minutes

D. Meters and kilometers

LecturePLUS Timberlake


Solution

A. quarts and mL 1 L = 1000 mL

1 L and 1000 mL

1000 mL 1 L

B. hours and minutes1 hr = 60 min

1 hr and 60 min

60 min1 hr

C. meters and kilometers 1 km = 1000 m

1 km and 1000 m

1000 m 1 km
