1. CH. 2 - MEASUREMENT I. Using Measurements (p. 44 - 57) C. Johannesson

2. A. Accuracy vs. Precision • Accuracy - how close a measurement is to the accepted value • Precision - how close a series of measurements are to each other ACCURATE = CORRECT PRECISE = CONSISTENT C. Johannesson

3. your value accepted value B. Percent Error • Indicates accuracy of a measurement C. Johannesson

4. % error = 2.9 % B. Percent Error • A student determines the density of a substance to be 1.40 g/mL. Find the % error if the accepted value of the density is 1.36 g/mL. C. Johannesson

5. C. Significant Figures • Indicate precision of a measurement. • Recording Sig Figs • Sig figs in a measurement include the known digits plus a final estimated digit 2.35 cm C. Johannesson

6. C. Significant Figures • Counting Sig Figs (Table 2-5, p.47) • Count all numbers EXCEPT: • Leading zeros -- 0.0025 • Trailing zeros without a decimal point -- 2,500 C. Johannesson

7. C. Significant Figures Counting Sig Fig Examples 1. 23.50 1. 23.50 4 sig figs 3 sig figs 2. 402 2. 402 3. 5,280 3. 5,280 3 sig figs 2 sig figs 4. 0.080 4. 0.080 C. Johannesson

8. 3 SF C. Significant Figures • Calculating with Sig Figs • Multiply/Divide - The # with the fewest sig figs determines the # of sig figs in the answer. (13.91g/cm3)(23.3cm3) = 324.103g 4 SF 3 SF 324g C. Johannesson

9. C. Significant Figures • Calculating with Sig Figs (con’t) • Add/Subtract - The # with the lowest decimal value determines the place of the last sig fig in the answer. 224 g + 130 g 354 g 224 g + 130 g 354 g 3.75 mL + 4.1 mL 7.85 mL 3.75 mL + 4.1 mL 7.85 mL  350 g  7.9 mL C. Johannesson

10. C. Significant Figures • Calculating with Sig Figs (con’t) • Exact Numbers do not limit the # of sig figs in the answer. • Counting numbers: 12 students • Exact conversions: 1 m = 100 cm • “1” in any conversion: 1 in = 2.54 cm C. Johannesson

11. 5. (15.30 g) ÷ (6.4 mL)  2.4 g/mL 2 SF C. Significant Figures Practice Problems 4 SF 2 SF = 2.390625 g/mL 6. 18.9 g - 0.84 g  18.1 g 18.06 g C. Johannesson

12. D. Scientific Notation • Converting into Sci. Notation: • Move decimal until there’s 1 digit to its left. Places moved = exponent. • Large # (>1)  positive exponentSmall # (<1)  negative exponent • Only include sig figs. 65,000 kg  6.5 × 104 kg C. Johannesson
