All measurements have a number value AND a unit.
Remember place values!
Significant figures are all the measurement numbers you can read from the markings on a measuring tool plus one guess.
The more numbers you can write for a measurement, the more precise the tool is.
This ruler shows does not show consecutive markings for the tenths. Our guess digit will be the tenths place.
How long is the pencil?
This is a beaker. It is not very precise.
How many mL of liquid are in the beaker? Hint: Where is the 10mL mark?
How many mL of solution are in this beaker?
This is an Erlenmeyer flask. It is not very precise.
What place value would your guess digit have?
This is tricky! How many mL are in the flask?
This is a graduated cylinder. It is more precise than an Erlenmeyer flask or a beaker.
Water-based solutions will form a meniscus in a graduated cylinder.
To read a volume you must be “eyeball to eyeball” with the meniscus.
Read the volume from the BOTTOM of the meniscus.
Read the volume in the graduated cylinder (mL).
How many mL are in this graduated cylinder?
This is a buret.
A buret is more precise than a beaker or graduated cylinder.
A buret has a meniscus.
The marks on a buret start with zero at the top. You read how much liquid left the buret.
Read the volume (mL) on the buret.
Reading Scales Section 1.3. Our Metric Rulers are Marked off in Centimeters 10 centimeters are in one decimeter.
Reading a Graduated Cylinder And All about the Meniscus.
The volume we read from the beaker has a reading error of +/- 1 mL.
Significance in Measurement How to make a measurement from an instrument… How to make a measurement from an instrument… Write down all the digits that.
Some Common Laboratory Glassware Please be careful when using glassware in the laboratory. Wet glassware and wet gloves are slippery. Always read a volume.
Instruments of Measurement. A balance is used to measure the amount of matter an object contains and is measured in grams.
Significant Figures Number of digits believed to be correct by the person doing the measuring Includes 1 estimated digit Read to 1/10 the smallest division.

Significant Figures and Scientific Notation Math in the Science Classroom.
ml ml ) Measure the volume of liquid in a graduated cylinder. – make sure you read the measurement at the bottom of the meniscus 3 m.
Measuring Reading the Meniscus Always read volume from the bottom of the meniscus at eye-level. The meniscus is the curved surface of a liquid in a narrow.
Lecture: Measurement. English system: Metric system:
Using a Graduated Cylinder. 1. Understand the size of the graduated cylinder and its markings- 100:1ml near the top means it is a 100 milliliter (ml)
Date: 8/28/2011 Outcome: Students will be able to read and measure liquid volume with a graduated cylinder. Questions: What is a meniscus? Activities:
