1
The Metric System

2
Length

3
**Length is a measurement of distance.**

4
**Length is measured using the tools:**

ruler meter stick tape measure

5
**Length is measured in the basic unit: meter**

6
Volume

7
**Volume is the amount of space taken up, or occupied, by an object.**

8
**The volume of a liquid can be measured easily by reading the meniscus.**

9
**The meniscus is the curve at a liquids surface.**

10
Liquid volume is measured using the tools: beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks, graduated cylinders, and pipettes

11
**Liquid volume is measured in the basic unit: liter(L)**

12
**The volume of a solid can be calculated by measuring the length, width and height of a solid object.**

13
**The equation to calculate the solid volume is length X width X height**

V=LxWxH

14
**Solid volume can be measured using the tools: a ruler, a meter stick, or a tape measure**

15
**Solid volume is measured in the units cubic centimeters (cm3)**

16
**To convert liquid to solid volume 1mL=1cm3**

17
Mass

18
**Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object**

19
**Mass is always constant for an object, no matter where it is located in the universe.**

20
**Mass can be measured using the tool: balance.**

21
**Mass is measured in the units: grams(g)**

22
Weight

23
**Weight is a measure of the gravitational force on an object.**

24
**Weight varies depending on where the object is in relation to the Earth.**

25
**Weight can be measured using the tool: spring scale**

26
**Weight is measured using**

the units: Newtons (N)

27
Temperature

28
**Temperature is a measurement of heat in a substance.**

29
**Temperature can be measured using the tool: thermometer**

30
**Temperature is measured using the units Celcius (C)**

31
Prefixes for Metric System Units

32
Killo=1000 Hecto=100 Deca=10 0=basic unit deci=1/10 centi=1/100 milli=1/1000
