ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS
* An asterisk indicates an item new to this edition.
Q1.1
Density varies with temperature and pressure. It would
be necessary to measure both mass and volume very
accurately in order to use the density of water as a
±standard.
Q1.2
(a) 0.3 millimeters (b) 50 microseconds
(c) 7.2 kilograms
*Q1.3
The answer is yes for (a), (c), and (f
). You cannot add or
subtract a number of apples and a number of jokes. The
answer is no for (b), (d), and (e). Consider the gauge of a
sausage, 4 kg
/
2 m, or the volume of a cube, (2 m)
3
. Thus
we have (a) yes (b) no (c) yes (d) no (e) no (f
) yes
Q1.4
No: A dimensionally correct equation need not be true. Example: 1 chimpanzee = 2 chimpanzee
is dimensionally correct.
Yes: If an equation is not dimensionally correct, it cannot be correct.
*Q1.5
The meterstick measurement, (a), and (b) can all be 4.31 cm. The meterstick measurement and
(c) can both be 4.24 cm. Only (d) does not overlap. Thus (a) (b) and (c) all agree with the
±meterstick±measurement.

cantly higher, so higherdensity material
must be down below the surface.

P1.6
From the ±
gure, we may see that the spacing between diagonal planes is half the distance
between diagonally adjacent atoms on a ﬂ
at plane. This diagonal distance may be obtained from
the Pythagorean theorem,
