3Laws & Theoriestheory: explanation based on supported hypothesis -broad principle of nature supported over many years -can be modified -can lead to new conclusions law: describes something known to happen without error -doesn’t explain why it happens -there are no exceptions -several scientists come to the same conclusion
4Experiemental DataWhen we perform experiments, data is separated into 2 types:1. qualitative-uses the 5 senses-physical characteristics2. quantitative-numerical data-measurable
5Experimental Variables There are 2 types of variables when doing an experiment:1. independent: variable you change2. dependent: variable that changes due to a change inthe independent variable.It is also important to have controls, or standards for comparison.

7Temperature There are three possible temperature scales: Celsius-based on metric system-based on temp when water freezes andboilsKelvin-SI Unit-based on the idea of absolute zero, thelowest possible theoretical temperature-will discuss more in Ch 14 (Gas Laws)3. Farenheit-what we are used to using
8Converting Temperature Celsius to Kelvin / Kelvin to CelciusTK = TCTC = TK2. Celsius to Farenheit / Farenheit to CelsiusTC = (TF -32oF)5oC9oFTF = TC 9oF oF5oC
9SI Units and Derived Units derived unit: unit that is defined by a combination of base units-volume: space occupied by an object; unit is the liter, L, for liquids and gases, or cubic centimeter, cm3, for solidsV = l x l x l-density: ratio of the mass of an object to its volume; unit is g/mL or g/cm3 since 1 mL = 1cm3D = m/V

11Converting Between Prefixes Dimensional analysis is a method of problem-solving that focuses on the units used to describe matter. A conversion factor is a ratio of equivalent values used to express the same quantity in different units. -they change the units of a quantity without changing its value -ratio of units, such as 1 km 1000m -set up so the units you don’t need cancel out 48 m x 1 km = km 1000 m
12Dimensional AnalysisIt is common in scientific problems to use dimensional analysis to convert more than one unit at a time.What is the speed of 550 m/s in km/min?Convert m to kmConvert s to min
13Dimensional AnalysisSometimes we need to convert from metric to standard (and vice versa).-some of these common conversions you will need to know are:1 cm3 = 1 mL s = 1 min1 in = 2.54 cm 60 min = 1 hr1 ft = 12 inPractice:152 cm = ____ m in = ____ ft
14Significant Figuressignificant figures: number of all known digits in a measurement plus one estimated digit.-allows more precision in measurement-not all measuring devices show the same precisionExample: In the following measurement, what are the known values and what is the estimated value?16.25 mLknown = 162estimated = 5
15Significant Figures-Rules The easiest way to determine significant figures of a given number is by using the Pacific/Atlantic rules.1. Decimal point PRESENT, start from the PACIFIC.-Begin counting on the left hand (Pacific) side of thenumber. Move toward the right and start with thefirst nonzero number.has 7 significant figureshas 2 significant figures
16Significant Figures-Rules 2. Decimal point ABSENT, start from the ATLANTIC.-Begin counting on the right hand (Atlantic) side ofthe number. Move toward the left and start withthe first nonzero digit.1200 has 2 significant figures1207 has 4 significant figuresZeros that act as placeholders are not significant:and 1200
17Significant Figures Practice 1 Copy the following questions and answer.Determine the number of significant figures in the following numbers.1) ) )2) ) )3) )
18Significant Figures and Rounding Suppose you are asked to find the density of an object with a m=of g and whose V=14.2 cm3.Using a calculator, you get , which has 8 significant figures. Does this answer make sense?No. The mass only has 4 sig figs and the volume has 3. Your answer would be more precise than the starting information.
19Significant Figures and Rounding How would you correctly round this?By using the starting data with the fewest sig figs (when multiplying/dividing), which is 3: g/cm3-when adding/subtracting, your answer will have the smallest number of decimal places based on the starting information.3.12 m m = 6.32 m = 6.3 m
20Significant Figures Practice 2 Perform the following operations expressing the answer in the correct number of significant figures.1) m x m2) m2 ÷ 42 m3) mL mL + 6 mLRound to four significant figures.6) kg 7) g

A graph is used to reveal patterns by giving a visual representation of data.a. must know the independent (x axis) and dependentvariable (y axis)b. determine the range of data that needs to beplotted for each axis: try to take up at least ¾ of thepaper-use a pencil and rulerc. number and label each axis: don’t forget the unitsd. plot the points and draw a line of best fit-curved or straighte. title the graph

29Scientific NotationValues in science are often very large or very small, requiring a lot of zeros.Scientists use scientific notation, a short hand method of writing extremely large or small numbers, to make calculations easier.-scientific notation is a value written as a simplenumber multiplied by a power of 10.
30Power of 10 equivalents:= 10,000= 1000= 100= 10= 1= 0.1===
31Writing Scientific Notation 1. Write the first 2 or 3 digits as a simple number withonly one digit to the left of the decimal point.2. Count the number of decimal places you move thedecimal. This will give you your power of 10.-If you move the decimal to the left the power of ten will be positive.-If you move the decimal to the right the power of ten will be negative.If you must adjust the decimal:-if moved to the left, add to the exponent-if moved to the right, subtract from the exponent
32Dividing with Scientific Nototation Example Lets calculate the time it takes for light to travel from Neptune to Earth. The speed of light is 3.0x108m/s and the distance from Neptune to Earth is 4.6x1012m.-Use the formula v = d/t-Rearrange to solve for t: t = d/v-d = 4.6x1012m, v = 3.0x108m/s, t = ?- t = 4.6x1012m = 1.5x104s (no adjustment)3.0x108m/s
33Dividing with Scientific Notation Practice Convert the following into scientific notation.Convert the following into common form.x x104Solve the following:x105 ÷ 3.0x1022.0x104 ÷ 5x102Don’t forget about significant figures!!!
34Multiplying with Scientific Notation ExampleIf it takes 2.7 x 1023 seconds for light to travel from one planet to another, how far apart are the planets? Remember light travels at a speed of 3.0 x 108 m/s.-Use the formula v = d/t.-Rearrange to solve for d: d = vt-d = ?, v = 3.0 x 108 m/sd = vt = (2.7 x1023 s) (3.0 x 108 m/s)= 8.1 x 1031 m (no adjustment necessry)
