Lab 2. Metrics and Measurements By Jane Horlings

The Metric System English system = American Standard System –Difficult to use, memorize

The Metric System Metric system= based on the power of 10 –Easier to use, memorize

The Metric System Base Units: gram –weight (mass) meter –length liter –volume (or cubic measurement)

The Metric System kilo- 1000 of it UNIT centi-100th of it milli-1000th of it

The Metric System Weight: gram kilogram (kg) gram (g) milligram (mg)

The Metric System Length: meter kilometer (km) meter (m) centimeter (cm) millimeter (mm)

The Metric System Volume: liter liter (L) milliliter (mL)

The Metric System Volume cubic centimeter (cc or cm 3 )

The Metric System Volume, weight of water 1 mL = 1 cc = 1 g MEMORIZE THIS!

The Metric System Temperature Celsius 0° C = 100° C =

The Metric System Computations: In Google: 1 meter in feet?

The Metric System Computations: In Google: 15 inches in cm 15 inches = 38.1 centimeters

Graphing

Graphs: Line graph

Graphing Graphs: Bar/column graph

Graphing Graphs: –Title –Axis labels –Scale –Units

Graphing Graphs: Line graph –Continuous data –Time series

Graphing Graphs: Bar/column graph –Discontinuous data –Treatments
