All students are expected to practice and display a high level of personal and professional integrity.
During examinations each student should conduct himself in a way that avoids even the appearance
of cheating.Any homework or computer problem must be entirely the students'own work.Con
sultation with other students is acceptable;however copying homework from one another will be
considered academic misconduct.Any academic misconduct will be dealt with under the policies
of the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences.This could mean a failing grade and/or dis
missal.The policy of the University regarding withdrawals and incompletes will be strictly adhered
to.
Center for Student Academic Support
Students with disabilities should contact the Center for Student Academic Support to selfidentify
their needs in order to facilitate their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.The center
for Student Academic Support is located in Lorton Hall,Room 210.All students are encouraged
to familiarize themselves with and take advantage of services provided by the Center for Student
Academic Support such as tutoring,academic counseling,and developing study skills.The Center
for Student Academic Support provides condential consult ations to any student with academic
concerns as well as to students with disabilities.

5 Standards for Measurement
5.1 Measurement
Crash reconstructionists are interested in measuring things that happened in the past.Since the nal
results of a reconstruction are measurements of some kind,we need to understand the denitions
and standards for measurements.
If we say a skid mark is measured to be 5 what does that mean?The number 5 does not mean
anything unless some units are used because,for example,5 inches is much different than 5 miles.
Developing standards for measurements was no easy task.Measurements in past times were very
often based on the dimensions of human or animal body parts.For example,kings of old were so
selfcentered that they made lengths and masses of their own bodies and possessions the standard
for the whole land.The length of the king's foot became his ki ngdom's standard unit of measure for
the foot.Or,the inch was the width of his thumb.Kings could be replaced and so could the unit of
measure.Furthermore,neighboring kingdoms had different standards.These practices,of course,
made scientic progress difcult.As scientic inquiry,co mmerce,and colonization grew,the world
began to adopt standards for measurement.Finally,the units of measure were standardized and they
are still used today.
5.2 Physical Quantities and Units of Measure
The laws of physics are expressed in terms of what are known as physical quantities.Examples
of physical quantities are force,time,velocity,temperature,and electric current.Physical quan
tities are categorized into fundamental quantities and derived quantities.Fundamental quantities
are those quantities that are based on known standards.They are not dened in terms of other
physical quantities.Derived quantities are those quantities that are based on other physical quanti

Table 5.1:Denition of prexes for factor of ten relationsh ips
ties.The units of measure associated with fundamental quantities and derived quantities are called
fundamental units and derived units,respectively.
There are two major systems of measurement used in the world today.The rst,used mainly in
America,is the US
∗
system.The second is the SI system(metric system),which has been adopted
by the rest of the world,including Canada.SI is the abbreviation for International System of Units
(from the French Le Système International d'Unités).Both systems are used throughout this text,
with the majority of the examples worked in the US system.
The metric system uses fundamental units that are related by factors of ten.
This is convenient
because only the fundamental units need to be known.For example,if we know the length of a
meter,then a kilometer is 1000 times the length of a meter.Table
5.1
lists the different names that
are prepended to the fundamental unit in order to change it.Some of these will be familiar from
our experience with consumer electronics.Outside the US the metric system has been adopted
∗
Sometimes referred to as the English or Imperial system.
A factor of ten is also known as an order of magnitude.

5.2 PhysicalQuantitiesandUnitsofMeasure
by most countries and the scientic community for their tech nical publications.However,typical
Americans (juries) can relate much easier to the US system.This book presents concepts using
both systems of measurement.
5.2.1 Fundamental Units
There are seven fundamental units,also known as base units,that dene the SI system.The seven
base units are:
1.Length
2.Mass
3.Time
4.Electric Current
5.Temperature
6.Amount of Substance
7.Intensity of Light
The denitions of the seven base units are established throu gh the General Conference on Weights
and Measures.The rst three,length,mass,and time,are fam iliar to crash investigators and are
