6 Accuracy v. PrecisionAccuracy- How close a measured value agrees w/ the correct valuePrecision-How close ea. Measurement agrees w/ ea. other

8 Sig Figs(a) Exact Numbers: may be counted or defined. Are absolutely accuratePeople in a room.There is some uncertainty in measurements.Sig. Figs. Indicate the uncertainty in the measurements.Digits believed to be correct by those that makes themCan only report ONE estimated digit.
9 Using Scientific Measurements Using a calibrated instrument of measure you can be certain of the accuracy of some of the digits measured.The last digit of the measurement is however, always questionableExcluding the last digit would be misleadingWith the last digit you have some indication of the value’s likely rangeAny measurement reported should consist of the certain digits plus the uncertain digit.The last digit is uncertain, but it isn’t insignificant…
11 Using Scientific Measurements Since only the significant digits are reported it is important to be able to determine all the significant digits in a measurement.There are a set of rules that allow us to determine the significance of any figures in any measurement even if we don’t know the origin of the measurement
12 RULES FOR SIG FIGSZeros (0) used only to position the decimal are not significant. 3 sig figs23000 depends on the measurement
13 RULES FOR SIG FIGS Correct answer =15.2 cm2 2. In x/÷, an answer contains no more sig figs than the least # of sig figs used in the operation.ie: (12.34 cm)*(1.23 cm) = cm2Correct answer =15.2 cm2
14 RULES FOR SIG FIGS (37.24+10.3)=47.5447.5 (27.87-21.2342)=6.63586.64 In +/- the last digit retained in the answer is determined by the position of the first estimated number.In other words( )=47.5447.5( )=6.63586.64
15 Measurements: Sig Figs Only measurements are given significance.There are some numbers that aren’t considered in terms of significance.Conversion factors have an infinite number of significant figures (ratios of equal measures, like 1 ft/12 in or 60 sec/1 min)Exact numbers also have an infinite number of significant figures, like 20 apples or 10 test tubesSec 2-3

17 Measurements: Sig Figs Just because the calculated answer in your calculator has 8 digits in the answer – doesn’t mean they are all significantAnswers calculated from measurements may not be expressed with more significant digits than any of the original measure mentsCalculator answers must be rounded to reflect the least accurate measurementSec 2-3Pg 44-57

21 Derived UnitsUnits that are made up of 2+ basic units, ie. Velocity, force, acceleration.DensityAmount of mass per unit volume.D=m/vUnites are g/cm3 or g/mL or g/LCm3 is a unit of volume for solids because v=l*w*h cm*cm*cm=cm3Example: A mL sample of ethanol has a mass of 37.32g. What is its density? (hint: denisty= mass/volume)
22 Derived Units Specific Gravity Ratio of a substance’s density to the density of H2ODensity of degrees CNo units
23 How to: Derived Units Read problems Write formula Write variables Plug in numbersSolveFor example: Express the density of mercury in lb/ft3 if the density if g/cm3.
24 Your Turn…A block of Zinc metal has the dimensions 5.0 cm X 7.0 cm X 20.0 cm, and its mass is 5.0 kg. What is the density of the Zinc metal in g/mL? Zinc’s density is 7.13 g/cm3, what is the percent error from the lab?
