3 Matter: Anything that has mass and occupies space. Mass : The quantity or amount of matter that an object possesses. –Fixed –Independent of the object’s location Weight: A measure of the earth’s gravitational attraction for an object. –Not fixed –Depends on the object’s location.
26 Very large and very small numbers are often encountered in science. 602200000000000000000000 0.00000000000000000000625 Very large and very small numbers like these are awkward and difficult to work with.
27 602200000000000000000000 A method for representing these numbers in a simpler form is scientific notation. 0.00000000000000000000625 6.022 x 10 23 6.25 x 10 -21
28 Scientific Notation Write a number as a power of 10 Move the decimal point in the original number so that it is located after the first nonzero digit. Follow the new number by a multiplication sign and 10 with an exponent (power). The exponent is equal to the number of places that the decimal point was shifted.

33 The metric or International System (SI, Systeme International) is a decimal system of units. It is built around standard units. It uses prefixes representing powers of 10 to express quantities that are larger or smaller than the standard units.

38 Dimensional Analysis Dimensional analysis converts one unit to another by using conversion factors. unit 1 x conversion factor = unit 2
39 Basic Steps 1.Read the problem carefully. Determine what is to be solved for and write it down. 2.Tabulate the data given in the problem. –Label all factors and measurements with the proper units.
40 3.Determine which principles are involved and which unit relationships are needed to solve the problem. –You may need to refer to tables for needed data. 4.Set up the problem in a neat, organized and logical fashion. –Make sure unwanted units cancel. –Use sample problems in the text as guides for setting up the problem. Basic Steps
41 5.Proceed with the necessary mathematical operations. –Make certain that your answer contains the proper number of significant figures. 6. Check the answer to make sure it is reasonable. Basic Steps
