Tools for Measuring some Physical Properties of Matter Fill in your vocabulary map with the following information!
1.mass: measure of the amount of matter in an object unit: gram tool: triple beam balance (TBB)
2.volume: measure of amount of space occupied by an object unit: milliliters (mL) or cubic centimeters (cm 3 ) tool: graduated cylinder cm 1 mL = 1 cm 3 cm x cm x cm = cm 3 mL
3.density: measure of amount of matter in a given space unit: tool: density = mass g volume mL matter space g/mL OR g/cm 3 TBBAND graduated cylinder
4.length: measure of distance from one point to another unit: centimeters (cm) or millimeters (mm) tool: ruler
5.temperature: measure of how fast the particles in an object are moving unit: degrees Celsius ( 0 C) or Fahrenheit ( 0 F) tool: thermometer For Water: B pt.= 100 0 C F pt.= 0 0 C For Water: B pt.= 212 0 F F pt.= 32 0 F
6.weight: measure of the amount of gravitational pull on an object unit: newton (N) tool: spring scale
