Presentation Transcript

Metric System Prefixes and Base Units

• Base Units:

• Meter- length

• Gram – mass

• Liter – volume

• Prefixes:

• Kilo, Hecto, Deka, Base Unit, Deci, Centi, Milli

Distance of an object

Units: Meter

(amount of matter in an object)

Amount of stuff in stuff

How hard gravity

Pulls on the mass

• Mass = the amount of matter in and object.

Units = Grams or Kilograms

• Weight = how much gravity pulls on your mass. Units = Newtons

The amount of space

an object takes up.

Units = cm3 or ml

• Measure Length x width x height = cm3

or

• Water displacement = ml

How tightly packed an object is.

• Density = Mass divided by volumehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=1whMAIGNq7E&feature=endscreen

• D = M or

V

=

Units g/ml or g/cm3

if you used water if you used l x w x h
