2 Mass: Gram (g) and Kilogram (kg)•a measure of the quantity of material it contains.•measured in grams (g) for small masses.•The mass of a nickel is 5.01 g on an electronic scale.Temperature: Celsius (°C) and Kelvin (K)•Water freezes:✓32 °F✓0 ° C•The Kelvin scale for temperature begins at the lowest possible temperature, 0 K.•A thermometer is used to measure temperature.Time: Second (s)•The second (s) is the correct metric and SI unit for time.•The standard measure for 1 s is an atomic clock.Study Check Identify the SI units for each of the following:A. The SI unit for volume is the_____________________________________ B. The SI unit for mass is the _______________________________________C. The SI unit for length is the ______________________________________D. The SI unit for temperature is the _________________________________ 2.2 Measured Numbers and Significant FiguresLearning Goal Identify a number as measured or exact; determine the number of significant figures in a measured number.•Length is measured by observing the marked lines at the end of a ruler. •The last digit in your measurement is an ______________________, obtained by visually dividing the space between the marked lines.Measured Numbers•Measured numbers are the numbers obtained when you measure a quantity such as your height, weight, or temperature.•To write a measured number,1.observe the numerical values of marked lines2.estimate value of the numbers between marks3.use the estimated numberas the final number in your measured number1 kg= 1 kg= 454 g = 1 day = 1 h= 1 min =
