NOTES #1 : Understanding Volume

Set up your page for Cornell notes Notes #1- UNDERSTANDING VOLUME Draw a line Down the left Side of the page

Set up your page for Cornell notes Notes #1- UNDERSTANDING VOLUME The LEFT side is where you write A QUESTION OR PROMPT

Set up your page for Cornell notes Notes #1- UNDERSTANDING VOLUME The RIGHT side is where you right YOUR ANSWER

1. What is Volume? Volume is: WRITE WHAT YOU THINK “VOLUME” MEANS

1. What is Volume? Volume is: The amount of space taken up by a solid, liquid or gas

NOTES #1— UNDERSTANDING VOLUME 1. What Is volume ? The amt. of space taken up by solid, liquid, or gas ON the right hand side: Write the answer to the Question or prompt. Be sure to use symbol and and Abbreviation to save time And space

2. How do you measure the volume of a liquid?  A GRADUATED CYLINDER IS USED TO MEASURE LIQUID VOLUME

NOTES #1— UNDERSTANDING VOLUME What Is volume ? 2. How do you measure volume of a liquid? The amt. of space taken up by solid, liquid, or gas Using a graduated cylinder

3. What units are used for a graduated cylinder?  Graduated cylinders measure liquids using the metric unit of milliliters (mL).  1 milliliter is a very Tiny amount of liquid. It is just a few drops!

Step 1: In order to read a graduated cylinder, it is important to determine the VALUE of each line A B C

Sometimes, when liquid is added to the cylinder, it “sticks” to the sides of the glass creating the appearance of a slight “U” shape curve at the top. WHAT IS THIS CURVE CALLED? MENISCUS Draw and label the meniscus

Step 2: To determine the MOST ACCURATE measurement, always read the number at the bottom of the curve. Step 3: To avoid errors, ALWAYS read the numbers from eye level! 4. How do we use or read a graduated cylinder?

WHAT IS THE VOLUME OF THE LIQUID IN THIS GRADUATED CYLINDER? 38 THINK…WHAT DO YOU DO FIRST? 1. DETERMINE THE VALUE OF THE LINES 2.MEASURE THE BOTTOM OF THE CURVE (MENISCUS) 3.Read at eye level 4.Remember to include the units!!! 37

AB CD COPY THEN ANSWER FOR LETTER D, MARK THE LINE AT 11.6 mL
