73.2Units and QuantitiesCommon metric units of volume include the liter, milliliter, cubic centimeter, and microliter.
83.2Units and QuantitiesUnits of MassKilogramA gram (g) is 1/1000 of a kilogram; the mass of 1 cm3 of water at 4°C is 1 g.
93.2Units and QuantitiesCommon metric units of mass include kilogram, gram, milligram, and microgram.
10Weight is a force that measures the pull on a given mass by gravity. 3.2Units and QuantitiesWeight is a force that measures the pull on a given mass by gravity.The astronaut shown on the surface of the moon weighs one sixth of what he weighs on Earth.An astronaut’s weight on the moon is one sixth as much as it is on Earth. Earth exerts six times the force of gravity as the moon. Inferring How does the astronaut’s mass on the moon compare to his mass on Earth?
11Temperature is a measure of how hot or cold an object is. 3.2Units and QuantitiesUnits of TemperatureTemperature is a measure of how hot or cold an object is.Thermometers are used to measure temperature.Thermometers are used to measure temperature. a) A liquid-in-glass thermometer contains alcohol or mineral spirits. b) A dial thermometer contains a coiled bimetallic strip. c) A Galileo thermometer contains several glass bulbs that are calibrated to sink or float depending on the temperature. The Galileo thermometer shown uses the Fahrenheit scale, which sets the freezing point of water at 32°F and the boiling point of water at 212°F.
123.2Units and QuantitiesScientists commonly use two equivalent units of temperature, the degree Celsius and the kelvin.
133.2Units and QuantitiesOn the Celsius scale, the freezing point of water is 0°C and the boiling point is 100°C.On the Kelvin scale, the freezing point of water is kelvins (K), and the boiling point is K.The zero point on the Kelvin scale, 0 K, or absolute zero, is equal to °C.
143.2Units and QuantitiesBecause one degree on the Celsius scale is equivalent to one kelvin on the Kelvin scale, converting from one temperature to another is easy. You simply add or subtract 273, as shown in the following equations.

20Energy is the capacity to do work or to produce heat. 3.2Units and QuantitiesUnits of EnergyEnergy is the capacity to do work or to produce heat.The joule and the calorie are common units of energy.
21The joule (J) is the SI unit of energy. 3.2Units and QuantitiesThe joule (J) is the SI unit of energy.One calorie (cal) is the quantity of heat that raises the temperature of 1 g of pure water by 1°C.
