Units of Measurement Scientists use the _______________ ________________ of measurement adopted a modification of the metric system called the ________________ __________________ ____ ______________________ as a worldwide standard. an official system of measurement used throughout the world for units of length, volume, mass, temperature, and time. Length: Meter (m) and Centimeter (cm) is measured using a meter stick. uses the unit _________________ in both the metric and SI systems. uses _________________________________ for smaller units of length. Volume: Liter (L) and Milliliter (mL) is the _________________ occupied by a substance. uses the __________________________ in the metric system. Graduated cylinders are used to measure small volumes.

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 Figures Learning 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 lines 2. estimate value of the numbers between marks 3. use the estimated number as the final number in your measured number 1 kg = 1 kg = 454 g = 1 day = 1 h = 1 min =
3 Writing Measured Numbers for Length The lengths of the objects measured at left are (a) _______________ (b) _______________ (c) _______________

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
