• rise
• (Helium density is less then air density)

• (Paraffin wax has less density than water density)
33. Water has a density of 1.0 g/cm3 at room temp.

• (Limestone density is more than water density)
34. Mass
amount of matter in an object (gram, pound, ton)
35. Volume
• amount of space an object occupies (cm3, mL, Gal, L, in3)
• temperature dependent
• 1.00 gal = 3.77 L
• 1.00 mL = 1.00 cm3
• Length: 1.00 in = 2.54 cm
36. Kilogram (kg)
• base unit of mass
• 1889 international prototype of the kilogram is a 39 mm cylinder made of 90% platinum and 10% iridium
• independent of temperature
37. Exact numbers
• Definitions - 12 objects in a dozen
• Counting - 15 pretzels in a bowl
• Simple fractions - 1/2 or 3/4

Infinite number of sig figs
38. Significant Figures
"Sig Figs"
• Zeros located at the beginning of a number are NEVER significant
• Zeros located between nonzero digits are ALWAYS significant
• Zeros located at the end of a number are significant only if the number has an explicitly shown decimal point
39. How many sig figs?
a) 3456
b) 0.048
c) 16.07
d) 9.300
e) 150
• a) 4
• b) 2 (leading zeros do not count)
• c) 4
• d) 4 (following zeros count if number contains a decimal point)
• e) 2 (following zeros don't count because the number does not contain a decimal point -- in this case write in scientific notation -- 1.5 x 10^2)
40. When multiplying exponential terms what do you do with the exponents?
b) subtract
41. When dividing exponential terms what do you do with the exponents?
b) subtract
b) subtract
42. Mass Unit Conversions
• 1.00 lb = 454 g
• 1.00 kg = 2.2046 lbs
• 1.00 oz = 28.3 g
43. Mass vs. Weight
• Weight = mass X gravity
• Analytical scale measures the force needed to counter sample (weight) and the acceleration of gravity. Then it solves the expression for mass which is displayed.
• mass = weight / acceleration due to gravity
• be careful of static electricity, tilting the balance, vibrations
44. Density
• Density = Mass / Volume
• dependent on pressure and temperature
