Initial and Final Units

1. A person has a height of 2.0 meters. What is that height in inches?

Initial unit = m Final unit = _______

2) Blood has a density of 0.05 g/mL. If a person lost 0.30 pints of blood at 18°C, how many ounces of blood would that be?

Initial = pints Final unit = _______

LecturePLUS Timberlake

How many minutes are in 2.5 hours?

Initial unit

2.5 hr

Conversion Final

factor unit

2.5 hr x 60 min = 150 min

1 hr

Learning Check

A rattlesnake is 2.44 m long. How long is the snake in cm?

1) 2440 cm

2) 244 cm

3) 24.4 cm

LecturePLUS Timberlake

Solution

A rattlesnake is 2.44 m long. How long is the snake in cm?

2) 244 cm

2.44 m x 100 cm = 244 cm

1 m

Learning Check

How many seconds are in 1.4 days?

Unit plan: days hr min seconds

1.4 days x 24 hr x ??

1 day

Solution CF2

Unit plan: days hr min seconds

2 SF Exact

1.4 day x 24 hr x 60 min x 60 sec

1 day 1 hr 1 min

Learning Check

An adult human has 4650 mL of blood. How many gallons of blood is that?

Unit plan:mL qt gallon

Equalities: 1 quart = 946 mL

1 gallon = 4 quarts

LecturePLUS Timberlake

Solution

Unit plan:mL qt gallon

Setup:

4650 mL x 1 qt x 1 gal = 1.23 gal

946 mL 4 qt

Steps to Problem Solving
• Identify data and Units
• Write down a unit plan from the initial unit

to the desired unit

• Select conversion factors
• Change initial unit to desired unit
• Cancel units and check
• Do math on calculator
• Give an answer using significant figures

Learning Check

If the ski pole is 3.0 feet in length, how long is the ski pole in mm?

LecturePLUS Timberlake

Solution

3.0 ft x 12 in x 2.54 cm x 10 mm =

1 ft 1 in. 1 cm

LecturePLUS Timberlake

Learning Check

If your pace on a treadmill is 65 meters per minute, how many seconds will it take for you to walk a distance of 8450 feet?

LecturePLUS Timberlake

Solution

Initial

8450 ft x 12 in. x 2.54 cm x 1 m

1 ft 1 in. 100 cm

x 1 min x 60 sec = 2400 sec

65 m 1 min final (2 SF)
