This tool is used to measure the VOLUME of a liquid. The proper way to read this tool is at EYE LEVEL at the bottom of the MENISCUS, which is the curved surface of the liquid.

MENISCUS

1) 7 mL 2) 38 mL3) 33 mL4) 20 mL What is the volume of the rock? 5) 20 mL

Metric rulers are used to measure length, width, and height. The LARGE numbers on the ruler are CENTIMETERS. The small lines between the centimeter marks are called MILLIMETERS. There are TEN (10) millimeters in a centimeter.

What do the SMALL lines between the numbered marks represent? CENTIMETERS MILLIMETERS How many millimeters in a one (1) centimeter? 10 mm

5.1 centimeters (5.1 cm) 5.1 cm X 10 = 51 millimeters (51 mm)

Thermometers are used to measure TEMPERATURE. Since scientists use the METRIC SYSTEM, they use thermometers that measure degrees Celsius rather than degrees Fahrenheit.

17 degrees C

An electronic balance is used to measure the MASS of an object. It is a more PRECISE tool than a triple beam balance because it can record mass to the hundreth of a GRAM.

To the nearest WHOLE number: 45 grams (45 g) To the nearest tenth: 45.2 grams (45.2 g)

1. GOGGLES – Protect Eyes 2. GLOVES – Protect Skin 3. APRON – Protect Clothes

TEST TUBE RACK Used to support test tubes during experiments TEST TUBE HOLDER Used to hold hot test tubes or while heating a test tube over a flame

TONGS – Used to safely handle hot beakers SAFETY SHOWER – To wash chemicals off if they splash on skin EYE WASH STATION – To flush eyes

BEAKER – Used to transfer and/or mix larger volumes of liquid FLASK – For mixing and heating liquids; Narrow neck helps prevent splashing

TEST TUBES STOPPERS (corks) TEST TUBE RACK

EYE DROPPER (PIPETTE) – Used to transfer very small amounts of liquid TEST TUBE

 ------- HOT WATER BATH – A way to safely heat chemicals in test tubes NOTE: Test tubes should NEVER be stoppered while being heated  ------BUNSEN BURNER – Used to heat things over a flame

CHEMICAL INDICATORS are used to test materials for the presence of various substances such as: * GLUCOSE (Benedicts) * STARCH (Iodine) * ACID (Blue Litmus Paper) * BASE (Red Litmus Paper)

Dissecting Kit RULER SCALPEL FORCEPS SCISSORS PIPETTE PROBES
