UNIT 2.2 SI UNITS/METRIC CONVERSIONS

SI UNITS SI = International system of metric units. Base unit = all other units are multiples of base units or combinations) QuantityWritten unitSymbol length mass time amount of substance

2.2 SI UNITS 3. IMPORTANT EQUIVALENCES 1 mL = 1 cm 3 1 m 3 = 10 3 L 1 t = 10 3 kg

2.2 SI UNITS Example: Re-write the expression “6 kilograms” using PREFIX and UNIT SYMBOLS an EXPONENTIAL EQUIVALENT The prefix symbol for kilo is ___ and the unit symbol for grams is ___ 6 kilograms = The exponential equivalent to kilo is ____ 6 kilograms =

METRIC CONVERSIONS Metric conversions involve using unit conversions between prefix symbols and exponential equivalents. Example: Write a conversion statement between cm and m.

M ETRIC CONVERSIONS Write conversion statements between each of the following dm and m cs and s dmol and mol

METRIC CONVERSIONS How many milligrams are in 5 kg?

METRIC CONVERSIONS Express 7µm in Megametres

M ETRIC CONVERSIONS How many decilitres in 0.5kL?

M ULTI C ONVERSION Convert 1cg/ mL into dg/L

METRIC CONVERSIONS DERIVED QUANTITIES Derived quantity = Derived unit =

D ENSITY Density is an example of a derived unit What is density? Density =

D ERIVED UNITS : DENSITY Given that a 2.44 cm 3 sample of an element has a mass of 47.14 g. Determine the density of the element.

D ERIVED UNITS Find the volume of a block of wood that has a mass of 34.5 grams. The density of this wood is 12g/ cm 3
