Measurement Notes

SI Units – International System of Units (metric system)

• A. 2 Key benefits
• 1. World-wide
• 2. Multiples of 10 – easy conversions
• (ex. 1 meter = 100 centimeters)

Types of Measurements1. Length – ruler/meter stick (m or cm)2. Mass – triple-beam balance or digital scale (g or kg)

3. Temperature – thermometer (Celsius or Kelvin)4. Time – clock/stopwatch (seconds)5. Area – Length X Width (A=L x W) Units will be squared (m2)

b. Regular Solid – L x W x H (Length x Width x Height)Units will be cubed = m3 or cm3

b. Irregular Solid – Immersion (1 mL = 1 cm3)Final Volume – Initial Volume = Object’s Volume

b. Irregular Solid – Immersion (1 mL = 1 cm3)Final Volume – Initial Volume = Object’s Volume

b. Irregular Solid – Immersion (1 mL = 1 cm3)Final Volume – Initial Volume = Object’s Volume 30mL – 23mL = 7mL 7mL = 7cm3
