Metric Conversions & Dimensional Analysis
Brainstorm 3 advantages of the metric system. Based on units of 10 Easy to convert No fractions Prefixes allow you to express any size measurement Standards are well defined International
Any disadvantages of the metric system? American’s aren’t used to it – its not part of their daily life. NOTE: The official international system is called the “SI” or “System International”
A few official SI units Meters – length Kilograms – mass Liters -- Volume Seconds – time Moles – amount of substance Ampere – electric current
Metric prefixes Giga – 10 9 Mega – 10 6 Kilo – 10 3 Hecto – 10 2 Deka - 10 1 Deci – 10 -1 Centi – 10 -2 Milli – 10 -3 Micro – 10 -6 Nano – 10 -9 There are others….
Kilo Hecto Deka meter, gram, Liter Deci Centi Milli Decimal Decimal moves Left moves Right
One more.. Convert 252cm 3 to L.
Converting units Dimensional Analysis… Set up the problem. Find the correct conversion factor. Create a fraction that cancels the given unit and brings you closer to the new unit.
Converting complex units Easiest to use dimensional analysis – cancel one part at a time until you have converted all parts.
Practice Convert 5km to miles 125lbs to kg
Practice Convert 72 mi/hr to m/s. Convert 275,000sec to days.

M easuring and U nits The Dominion Mandate requires us to gain knowledge about God’s creation. To do so, we must take measurements. Measurement.
Metric System Notes - the standard system (SI) used by all scientists. It is based on the number 10. It can be used to measure anything. (length, volume,
Metric Base Units Meter (m) – length Kilogram (kg) – mass Kelvin (K) – temperature Second (s) – time Mole (mol) – amount of substance.
