Presentation on theme: "Mass is the amount of matter (“stuff”) in an object."— Presentation transcript:
1Mass is the amount of matter (“stuff”) in an object. What is mass?Mass is the amount of matter (“stuff”) in an object.The base unit of mass in the metric system is the gram (g).
2Volume is the amount of space an object takes up. What is volume?Volume is the amount of space an object takes up.The base unit of volume in the metric system is the liter (L or l).
3Measuring VolumeWe will be using graduated cylinders to find the volume of liquids and other objects.
4What is the meniscus?The curve at the surface of a liquid is called a meniscus.The meniscus of most liquids curves up at the sides, making the center appear lower.This happens because the molecules of the liquid attract those of the container. The glass attracts the water on the sides.
5Read from the bottom of the curve! Reading the meniscusRead from the bottom of the curve!ALWAYS READ AT EYE LEVEL
8Formula for the volume of a regular object: Measuring Solid Volume10 cm9 cm8 cmThe volume of a solid object is expressed in cubic centimeters (cm3) and cubic meters (m3):Formula for the volume of a regular object:Volume = length x width x height10 cm8 cm9 cm720 cm3_____ X _____ X _____ = _____
9Measuring Solid Volume We can measure the volume of irregular objects using water displacement.Amount of H2O with object = ______ About of H2O without object = ______ Difference = Volume = ______280 mL200 mL80 cm3
