Math Problem Solving: What is Dimensional Analysis (DA)? ‘Units conversion’ Like you did in chemistry 4.04 g H2 x 1 mol H2 = 2 mol H2 2.02 g H2 Based on ‘equivalent quantities’ like 1 dozen/12 is equivalent to 12/1 dozen 1 mg/1000 mcg is equivalent to 1000 mcg/1 mg
How many times does an average adult heart beat in a year? What are the units of the answer I want? beats/year Ave adult 72 beats/min Solve on board 72 beats x 60 min x 24 hour x 365 day = 37,843,200 beats 1 min 1 hour 1 day 1 year year

Let’s use DA to solve the metric conversions (same problems as the ‘move the decimal’ trick)

Practice with DA & Rounding Rules 2.6 g = ? mg 64 mcg = ? mg 1250 mL = ? L
Drug Measurement Systems Household to metric Liquids 1 teaspoon (t)= 5 mL 1 tablespoon (T) = 15 mL 1 ounce (oz) = 30 mL 1 cup = 240 mL

Practice Problems: Use DA Together/on board 5 tsp = ? mL 4 oz = ? mL 180 mL = ? oz 1500 mL = ? L 2 Tbsp = ? mL 2 cups = ? mL
Practice Problems: Use DA Intake & Output The student picks up the patient’s lunch tray and she has consumed a 4 oz container of juice, 120 mL of 7-Up, 1 cup of broth, and 3 oz of jello. What amount in mL will the student enter into the patient record?

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
