1
**The Metric System The scientific system of measurement**

The International System of Units (SI) Based on the number 10 and multiples of 10

3
**Length Distance between two points**

Meter (m) = basic unit of length = 39.4 inches Metric rulers and meter sticks used to measure

4
**Meter stick -- 1 meter or 100 cm or 1000 mm long**

Metric ruler cm or 300 mm long

5
**Volume The amount of space an object takes up**

Liter = the basic unit of volume (L) Cubic Centimeter (cc or cm3) – used to measure the volume of solids

6
1 ml = 1 cc = 1 cm3 1000 ml = 1 L

7
**Liquid: Measured with graduated cylinder**

Meniscus -- the curved surface of a liquid in a graduated cylinder. Read the bottom of the meniscus.

8
Irregular solid: Measure out some water in the cylinder. This is volume 1. Drop the solid into the liquid causing the water level to go up. This is volume 2. Subtract volume 1 from volume 2 to get the volume of the solid.

9
Solid: volume = length x width x height

10
**Mass The measure of the amount of matter in an object**

Kilogram (kg) = basic unit of mass Measured with balance

12
**Density The mass per unit volume of a substance Density = Mass Volume**

Density of water = 1 g/mL

13
**Objects with density less than 1 g/mL float on water.**

Objects with density more than 1 g/mL sink in water.

14
**Temperature Celsius scale is usual measurement but SI unit is Kelvin**

The Kelvin temperature can be found by adding 273 to the Celsius reading

15
Water freezes at 0oC Water boils at 100oC Body temperature = 37oC Room Temperature = 21oC Temperature is measured with a thermometer

16
Time The interval between two events Measured in seconds
