Lab 1 – Metric System Introduction  -The point of this lab was to get aquaintenced with the metric system and how to measure things. In the first lab we learned the basics of the metric system, which is the standard  measurement used in the sciences. We went over the measurements of length (meters), volume  (liters), and weight (grams).  Length  - We used a ruler to measure the diameter of a circle. The circle had a diameter of 41mm. Volume  – we poured water into a test tube Weight  – We weighed 10 ml of water in a beaker, which turned out to be 9.5 g. We then weighed  10 g. of sugar. Finally added a gram of sugar to the 10 grams of water and measured the weight.  As expected the weight came out to 11 grams. Conclusion  – This experiment shows the different ways of measuring amounts in science and  how to do them. We measured the diameter of a circle and the volume in a graduated cylinder.

### 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.
