11 Metric Units the amount of matter in an object. The base unit of mass in the metric system in the kilogram and is represented by kg.Metric Units1 Kilogram (kg) = 1000 Grams (g)1 Gram (g) = 1000 Milligrams (mg)
12 Which is larger?1 kilogram or 1500 grams1200 milligrams or 1 gram12 milligrams or 12 kilograms4 kilograms or 4500 grams
13 Measuring MassTriple-beam balances is the instrument used to find the mass of various objects.The objects are placed on the scale and then you move the weights on the beams until you get the lines on the right-side of the scale to match up.Once you have balanced the scale, you add up the amounts on each beam to find the total mass.What would be the mass of the object measured in the picture?______ + _____ + _____ = ____ g
14 Using a Triple Beam Balance 1st – Place the film canister on the scale.5th – Add the amounts on eachbeam to find the total mass tothe nearest tenth of a gram.2nd – Slide the large weight to the right until the arm drops below the line. Move the rider back one groove. Make sure it “locks” into place.3rd – Repeat this process with the top weight. When the arm moves below the line, back it up one groove.4th – Slide the small weight on the front beam until the lines match up.

17 Metric vs English Which is larger? A. 1 liter or 1 gallon B. 1 liter or 1 quartC. 1 milliliter or 1 fluid ounce1 fl oz = ml1 12-oz can of soda would equal approximately 355 ml.1 gallon = 3.79 litersIt would take approximately 3 ¾ 1-liter bottles to equal a gallon.1 quart = liters
18 Volume Volume is the amount of space an object takes up. The base unit of volume in the metric system in the liter and is represented by L or l.Standard: 1 liter is equal to one cubic decimeterMetric Units1 liter (L) = 1000 milliliters (mL)1 milliliter (mL) = 1 cm3 (or cc) = 1 gram*Which is larger?A. 1 liter or 1500 millilitersB. 200 milliliters or 1.2 litersC. 12 cm3 or 1.2 milliliters*
19 Measuring VolumeThe instrument we use to find volume of liquids and other objects is called the graduated cylinder.To measure volume, read the measurement based on the bottom of the meniscus or curve. When using a real cylinder, make sure you are eye-level with the level of the water.What is the volume of water in the cylinder? _____mLWhat causes the meniscus?A concave meniscus occurs when the molecules of the liquid attract those of the container. The glass attracts the water on the sides.
20 What is the volume of water in each cylinder? Measuring VolumeWhat is the volume of water in each cylinder?
21 Measuring the volume of a regular shaped solid We can measure the volume of regular solid object using a metric ruler and the formulaVolume = length x width x height.10 cm9 cm8 cmMeasure the volume of the block._______x_______x_______ = __________________
22 Measuring the volume of an irregular shaped solid We can measure the volume of irregular object using water displacement.Measure the water before placing the object into the graduated cylinder.Place the object into that graduated cylinderMeasure the water with the objectTake the difference between the twomeasurements.What is the volume of the rock?___________ - ____________ = _____________
