Key Math Skills Identifying Place Values (1.4A) © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Chapter 2 Readiness

4
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Chemists use the metric system and the International System of Units (SI) for measurement when they measure quantities do experiments solve problems The International System of Units (SI)

5
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Units of Measurement and Their Abbreviations

6
© 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Metric System Prefixes convert the base units into units that are appropriate for the item being measured.

7
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Length is measured in units of meters (m) in both the metric and SI systems units of centimeters (cm) by chemists Length

8
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Useful relationships between units of length include: 1 m = yd 1 m = in. 1 m = 100 cm 2.54 cm = 1 in. Length

9
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Volume The most commonly used metric units for volume are the liter (L) and the milliliter (mL). »A liter is a cube 1 decimeter (dm) long on each side. »A milliliter is a cube 1 centimeter (cm) long on each side.

10
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Volume, the space occupied by a substance, is measured using units of m 3 in the SI system is commonly measured in liters (L) and milliliters (mL) by chemists Volume

© 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Temperature By definition temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample.

15
© 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Temperature In scientific measurements, the Celsius and Kelvin scales are most often used. The Celsius scale is based on the properties of water. »0 C is the freezing point of water. »100 C is the boiling point of water.

16
© 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Temperature The kelvin is the SI unit of temperature. It is based on the properties of gases. There are no negative Kelvin temperatures. K = C

Density Learning Goal Calculate the density of a substance; use the density to calculate the mass or volume of a substance.

24
© 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Derived Units Density is a physical property of a substance. It has units (g/mL, for example) that are derived from the units for mass and volume. d = mVmV

25
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Density Substances that have higher densities contain particles that are closely packed together lower densities contain particles that are farther apart Metals such as gold and lead have higher densities because their atoms are packed closely together.

26
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Density, Units In the metric system, densities of solids, liquids, and gases are expressed with different units. The density of a solid or liquid is usually given in grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm 3 ) grams per milliliter (g/mL) The density of a gas is usually given in grams per liter (g/L).

© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Link to the Environment The oil pumped out of the ground is called crude oil, or petroleum. It is mostly made of hydrocarbons, or compounds that contain only carbon and hydrogen. In April 2010, an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded, causing the largest oil spill in U.S. history. It leaked a maximum of 10 million liters a day into the Gulf of Mexico.

33
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Link to the Environment Because the density of this oil, 0.8 g/mL, was less than that of water, which is 1.00 g/mL, it floated on the surface, spreading a thin layer of oil over a very large surface.

34
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Density of Solids The density of a solid is calculated from its mass and volume. When a solid is submerged, it displaces a volume of water equal to the volume of the solid.

51
Step #1: Insert an understood decimal point. Step #2: Decide where the decimal must end up so that one number is to its left up so that one number is to its left Step #3: Count how many places you bounce the decimal point the decimal point Step #4: Re-write in the form 2.5 x 10 n

52
2.5 x 10 9 The exponent is the number of places we moved the decimal.
