Kinds of measurement

Kinds of measurement

The basic units of measurement are distance, volume, mass, time and temperature.


Kinds of measurement

Temperature


Critical range of temperature

Temperature

‘critical range of temperature’


Kinds of measurement

All living things require their own unique certain range of body temperature for optimal living conditions.

Temperature


Kinds of measurement

Temperature

Chemical reactions occur in living things as well

as outside of living things. Most chemical reactions

require certain conditions in order to occur.

Some chemical reactions need heat to occur.

These endothermic reactions leave the

products cold to our touch.


Kinds of measurement

Temperature

Other chemical reactions release heat when

occurring.

These exothermic reactions

give off energy that had been

stored in the bonds of the reactants.

The energy could be light and/or heat and

possibly sound as a byproduct.


Kinds of measurement

Time can be measured in:

Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades,

centuries, millions of years, billions of years

Volume

Volume (Space taken up)

Volume can be measured in two ways, depending on whether the object being measured is regular in shape or irregular in shape.


Kinds of measurement

Volume

Large, irregular shapes still have a certain volume that is measured in cubic feet or cubic meters.


Kinds of measurement

Volume

Volume can simply be length x width x height


Kinds of measurement

Volume

Hot air balloons measure the volume of air as cubic feet..

Kinds of measurement

Mass

What’s the difference between weight and mass?


Kinds of measurement

Mass

Mass is the same throughout

the universe.

Weight depends on gravity and mass.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

The large planets have a stronger pull of gravity.

The smaller planets have a weaker pull of gravity.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

Weight depends on gravity and mass.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

Mass is a comparison of

something to an International standard.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

Scales of all sorts are used to determine mass.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

In the course, Biology,

the term biomass is used very often.

Bio- (life)

–mass (weight-like)

examines the amount of materials

that are currently alive or had been

previously alive.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

All the plants of a forest could actually be removed,

dried and massed from the forest.


Kinds of measurement

Mass

All the vegetarians of the forest

could be removed, killed, dried

and massed from the forest.

Biologists often want to know the

plant mass to animal ratio

on a piece of property.
