Slide 1 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Capacity Section9.6

Slide 2 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Defining and Converting U.S. System Units of Capacity Units of capacity are generally used to measure liquids. U.S. Units of Capacity 8 fluid ounces (fl oz) = 1 cup (c) 2 cups = 1 pint (pt) 2 pints = 1 quart (qt) 4 quarts = 1 gallon (gal)

Slide 3 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Convert 11 quarts to gallons.

Slide 4 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Convert 18 cups to quarts.

Slide 5 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Subtract 3 qt from 4 gal 2 qt.

Slide 6 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Defining and Converting Metric System Units of Capacity Metric Units of Capacity 1 kiloliter (kl) = 1000 liters (L) 1 hectoliter (hl) = 100 L 1 dekaliter (dal) = 10 L 1 liter (L) = 1L 1 deciliter (dl) = 1/10 or 0.1 L 1 centiliter (cl) = 1/100 L or 0.01 L 1 milliliter (ml) = 1/1000 or 0.001 L

Slide 7 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Defining and Converting Metric System Units of Capacity The milliliter and the liter are the two most commonly used metric units of capacity.

Slide 8 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Convert 4510 ml to liters. List the unit measurers in order from left to right and move from milliliters to liters. kl hl dal L dl cl ml Move the decimal point three units to the left. 4510 ml = 4.510 L 3 units to the left

Slide 9 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Convert 0.195 dl to milliliters. List the unit measurers in order from left to right and move from milliliters to liters. kl hl dal L dl cl ml Move the decimal point two units to the right. 0.195 dl = 19.5 ml 2 units to the right

Slide 10 Copyright © 2015, 2011, 2008 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Add 1250 ml to 2.9 L. Convert to both liters or milliliters before adding the capacities together.
