Units of Measurement
Measurement You are making a measurement when you ¨Check you weight ¨Read your watch ¨Take your temperature ¨Weigh a cantaloupe What kinds of measurements did you make today?
Standards of Measurement When we measure, we use a measuring tool to compare some dimension of an object to a standard.
Some Tools for Measurement

Stating a Measurement In every measurement there is a ¨ Number followed by a ¨ Unit from measuring device
Number vs. Quantity Ø Quantity - number + unit UNITS MATTER!!

International System of Units § Metric system is now revised as the § § International System of Units (SI), as of 1960 Based on 10 or multiples of 10 Used in most of the world Used by scientists and hospitals 7 base units Table 1 -3, page 12
SI Base Units Quantity Symb Base Unit Abbre ol v. l Length meter m Mass m kilogram kg Time t second s Temp T kelvin K Amount n mole mol
Derived Units Ø Combination of base units. 1 cm 3 = 1 m. L w length 1 dm 3 = 1 L Ø Volume (m 3 or cm 3) Ø Density (kg/m 3 or g/cm 3) w mass per volume M D= V
Volume § The space occupied by any sample of matter § Calculated for a solid by multiplying the length x width x height § SI unit = cubic meter (m 3) § Everyday unit = Liter (L), which is non-SI
Volume l l l l 20 1 Liter is the volume of a cube 1 dm (10 cm) on a side 1 L = 10 cm x 10 cm 1 L = 1000 cm 3 1/1000 L = 1 cm 3 1 m. L is about 20 drops of water or 1 sugar cube 1 L about 1/4 of a gallon - a quart
