1 Lesson 3 Measuring with SI and Metric Units

2 SI Units There are two types of units: –fundamental (or base) units; –derived units. Units of Measurement

3 Powers of ten are used for convenience with smaller or larger units in the SI system. There are 7 Fundamental (Base) SI Units

4 Common Non-SI Units Physical QuantityName of UnitAbbreviation VolumeLiterL TemperatureCelsius oCoC EnergyCaloriecal

5 SI and Metric System Utilize prefixes Powers of ten are used for convenience with smaller or larger units. Units of Measurement Selected Prefixes used in SI System

6 Linear Measurement

7 Measurement of 1.Distance from place to place 2.Size Measuring Equipment 1.Ruler 2.Meter Stick 3.Tape measure 4.LASER

8 Volume Measurement

9 Volume Measurement Measurement of 1. How much space an object takes up 2. How much capacity Measuring Equipment 1. Graduated cylinder 2. Ruler

10 Volume Units of Measurement

11 Volume The units for volume are given by (units of length) 3. –SI unit for volume is 1 m 3. We usually use 1 mL = 1 cm 3. Other volume units: –1 L = 1 dm 3 = 1000 cm 3 = 1000 mL. Units of Measurement

12 Mass Measurement

13 Measurement of How much matter something has Measuring Equipment Balance

14 Temperature Measurement

15 A measurement of: Average kinetic energy of the particles of matter Measuring equipment Thermometer Three temperature scales: Kelvin Scale Celsius Scale Fahrenheit Scale Temperature
