Standard measure of a quantity Examples › Length = Meter (m) › Volume = Liter (L) › Mass = Grams (g) › Temperature = Celcius (°C)
Measure of the amount of matter in an object Tools › Scale › Balance Unit › Kilogram (kg) › Gram (g) › Milligram (mg)
Measure of the amount of matter in an object Mass of an object is the same no matter where it is located › Does not change with location Only way to change is to add or take away matter
Measure of the gravitational force (pulling) exerted on an object Changes when the force of gravity changes › Differs on Earth & Mars Tools › Spring Scale Unit › Newton (N)
Measure of the size of a body or region in a 3-D space Meniscus: curvature of the water’s surface that’s to be measured at the lowest point of the curve Tools › Beaker › Graduated cylinder
Unit › Cubic Meter (m 3 ) › Cubic Centimeter (cm 3 ) › Milliliter (mL) › Liter (L)
Measure of the size of a surface/region Tools › Meter stick › Ruler Unit › Square Meters (m 2 ) › Square Centimeters (cm 2 ) › Square Kilometers (km 2 )
Measure of how hot or cold something is Measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object Tools › Thermometer Unit › Kelvin (K) › Celsius (°C)
Ratio of the mass of a substance to the volume of a substance Tools › Mass: Balance or Scale › Volume: Graduated Cylinder/Beaker/Ruler Unit › g/mL › g/cm 3
Making Measurements in Science
The Metric System The scientific system of measurement
Measurement Measurement SI Standard System of International Units or Metric System Uses 10 as a base Always estimate one unit/place further than.
When we measure you need to know: › What you are measuring (the object) › What you are measuring with (which tool) › What you are measuring in (the.
The Metric System.
Reason 1: helps scientists share and compare their data/ results

MATTER– Anything that has MASS and VOLUME.
Tools for Measuring some Physical Properties of Matter Fill in your vocabulary map with the following information!

What tools do scientists use to measure length or distance?
Measurements All measurements include as many accurate numbers as possible and one estimated value. The numbers of accurate values a measurement has depends.
How would you measure…. A Football field? A drive in the car? Your weight? Kool-aid? UNITS!
Volume (square objects, like a box) Volume is the: amount of space something takes up. FACTS ABOUT VOLUME MEASURMENTS: Volume is found by multiplying three.

Length – the distance between 2 points Circumference – distance around a circular object.
