Ally dropped a delicate glass vase 6 feet from
the top of a ladder onto a concrete floor. The
glass did not break. Why?

The ladder was 7 feet tall.

1.3 Measurement

SI System

an international system of units used by

It allows scientists in different countries to
easily share data and results.


A measure of the distance between two points

SI unit: meter (m)

Instruments used : ruler, meter stick,
measuring tape


A measure of the passing of events

SI unit: second (s)

Instruments used : clock, timer


A measure of the movement of


SI unit: Kelvin (K)

F or

Instrument used: thermometer


A measure of the amount of space something
takes up

SI unit: Liter (L)

Instrument used: graduated cylinder


The amount of matter present

SI unit: kilogram (kg)

(1 kg = 1000 g)

A gram is approximately the mass of a paper clip.

Instrument: triple beam balance, digital balance


Weight is not the same as mass.

Weight is force, or push or pull.

Weight depends on gravity and depends on
where you are in the universe.

The units for weight are pounds (
) or


Instrument: scale, spring scale

Measuring Volume

We measure volume using a graduated

They come in a variety of sizes and
materials (glass, plastic).

The ones we use measure volume

n milliliters (1000 mL = 1 L)

The Meniscus

Many liquids, when
placed in a graduated
cylinder, will cling to the
sides creating a u
called a meniscus.

You always use the
BOTTOM of the meniscus
to make a measurement.

Rainbow Lab

In this lab you will practice using a graduated
cylinder to measure volume.

Everyone at your table must make at least one
measurement with the graduated cylinder.

Label 6 test tubes in order: A, B, C, D, E & F

Into test tube A, measure 25 mL of RED liquid.

Into test tube C, measure 17 mL of YELLOW liquid.

Into test tube E, measure 21 mL of BLUE liquid.

Part 2:

From test tube C, measure 4 mL and pour into test tube D.

From test tube E, measure 7 mL and pour into test tube D. Swirl.

From test tube E, measure 4 mL and pour into test tube F.

From test tube A, measure 7 mL and pour into test tube F. Swirl.

From test tube A, measure 8 mL and pour into test tube B.

From test tube C, measure 3 mL and pour into test tube B. Swirl.

Things to think about…

Is there any water or food coloring on your hands
or the table? If this liquid was hydrochloric acid,
you lost some of your data and may have burned

Are the volumes in the test tubes what they
should be at the end? Double check!

Example: Test tube A should have 25


8 = 10 mL

Pour the contents on A back in the graduated

cylinder and see how you did.
