Unformatted text preview: Chapter 1 Measurement “What is physics?”  Jearl Walker Answer: Measurements ... and relationships among measurements. Measurements are numbers . Chapter 1 Measurement Chapter 1, #31 A vertical container with base area measuring 14.0 cm by 17.0 cm is being filled with identical pieces of candy, each with a volume of 50.00 mm 3 and a mass of 0.0200 g. Assume that the volume of the empty spaces between the candies is negligible. If the height of the candies in the container increases at the rate of 0.250 cm/s, at what rate (kg/minute) does the mass of the candies in the container increase? 14.0 cm 17.0 cm 50.00 mm 3 0.0200 g 0.250 cm/s at what rate (kg/minute) Chapter 1 Measurement Chapter 1, #31 A vertical container with base area measuring 14.0 cm by 17.0 cm is being filled with identical pieces of candy, each with a volume of 50.00 mm 3 and a mass of 0.0200 g.

If the height of the candies in the container increases at the rate of 0.250 cm/s, at what rate (kg/minute) does the mass of the candies in the container increase? 14.0 cm 17.0 cm 10.0 mm = 1 cm Chapter 1 Measurement Chapter 1, #31 A vertical container with base area measuring 14.0 cm by 17.0 cm is being filled with identical pieces of candy, each with a volume of 50.00 mm 3 and a mass of 0.0200 g.
