Name Class Date, Accuracy Precision and Error Accuracy precision and error help determine the. reliability of measurements, The accuracy of a measurement is determined by how close the measured value is to the. actual value, The precision of a measurement is determined by how close repeated measurements are. to one another, Error is the difference between the measured value and the accepted value. Significant Figures Significant figures include all known digits plus one estimated digit. The number of significant figures reflects the precision of reported data. In calculations the number of significant figures in the least precise measurement is the. number of significant figures in the answer,Significant Figures.
Sample number 0 024050 5 significant figures, Not significant leftmost zeros in front of nonzero digits 0 024050. Significant a nonzero digit 0 024050,zeros between two nonzero digits 0 024050. zeros at the end of a number to the right of the decimal point. After reading Lesson 3 1 answer the following questions. Scientific Notation, 1 Why are numbers used in chemistry often expressed in scientific notation. Numbers used in chemical calculations are often very large or very small Writing. out all the zeros in such numbers can be very cumbersome Scientific notation makes. it easier to work with these numbers, 2 Circle the letter of each sentence that is true about numbers expressed in scientific notation. a A number expressed in scientific notation is written as the product of a coefficient. and 10 raised to a power,b The power of 10 is called the exponent.
c The coefficient is always a number greater than or equal to one and less than ten. d For numbers less than one the exponent is positive.

A 7 A single measurement is within 1 of the correct value. 8 On a dartboard darts that are closest to the bull s eye have been thrown with the. greatest accuracy On the second target draw three darts to represent three tosses. of lower precision but higher accuracy than the darts on the first target. First target Second target, 9 What is the meaning of accepted value with respect to an experimental measurement. The accepted value is the correct value based on reliable references. 10 Complete the following sentence For an experimental measurement the experimental. value minus the accepted value is called the error. 11 Is the following sentence true or false The value of an error must be positive. 12 Relative error is also called percent error, Lesson 3 1 Reading and Study Workbook Copyright Pearson Education Inc or its affiliates All Rights Reserved.

For students using the Foundation edition, 3 2 Units of Measurement assign problems 1 4 7 26 29 31 36. Essential Understanding Measurements are fundamental to the experimental sciences. Lesson Summary, Using SI Units Scientists use an internationally recognized system of units to.
communicate their findings,The SI units are based on multiples of 10. There are seven SI base units second meter kilogram Kelvin mole ampere and. Prefixes are added to the SI units because they extend the range of possible. measurements, Temperature Scales Temperature is a quantitative measure of the average kinetic energy. of particles in an object, Scientists most commonly use the Celsius and Kelvin scales. The zero point on the Kelvin scale is called absolute zero. Kelvin Celsius Conversion Equation is K C 273, One degree on the Celsius scale is the same as one kelvin on the Kelvin scale. Density Density is a ratio that compares the amount of mass per unit volume. The formula for density is density, Density depends on the kind of material but not on the size of the sample.
The density of a substance changes with temperature. Lesson 3 2 Reading and Study Workbook Copyright Pearson Education Inc or its affiliates All Rights Reserved. Name Class Date,BUILD Math Skills, Converting Among Temperatures The Fahrenheit scale is. based on the melting point of ice 32 degrees above 0 and the. boiling point of water 212 degrees above 0 However since. most of the rest of the world uses degrees Celsius it is important. to be able to convert from units of degrees Fahrenheit to. degrees Celsius, The SI base unit for temperature is Kelvin or K A temperature. of 0 K refers to the lowest possible temperature that can be reached. To convert degrees Celsius into kelvins,add 273 to the C. To convert kelvins into degrees Celsius,subtract 273 from the K. Sample Problem Mercury melts at 39 C What temperature is that in K. Add 273 to the C 39 C 273 234K,To convert Celsius temperatures into Fahrenheit.
multiply the Celsius temperature by 9,divide the answer by 5. Sample Problem Convert 40 C to F,Multiply the Celsius temperature. 40 x 9 360 Hint You can also use,the equation,Divide the answer by 5 360 5 72. Add 32 72 32 104 F, Lesson 3 2 Reading and Study Workbook Copyright Pearson Education Inc or its affiliates All Rights Reserved. Name Class Date,To convert Fahrenheit temperatures into Celsius.
subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature,multiply the answer by 5. divide that answer by 9,Sample Problem Convert 77 F to C. Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit,temperature,77 32 45 Hint You can also use. the equation,Multiply the answer by 5 45 x 5 225,Divide that answer by 9 225 9 25 C.

Its weight will be less because weight is a measure of gravitational force and the. force of gravity on the moon is one sixth what it is on Earth. Temperature Scales, 26 Draw an arrow below the diagram showing the direction of heat transfer between two. lower higher,temperature temperature, Lesson 3 2 Reading and Study Workbook Copyright Pearson Education Inc or its affiliates All Rights Reserved. Name Class Date, 27 What properties explain the behavior of liquid filled thermometers.
Almost all liquids expand in volume with an increase in temperature This expansion. forces the liquid higher in the thermometer tube as the temperature rises As the. temperature falls the liquid contracts and its level in the tube drops. 28 What are the two reference temperatures on the Celsius scale. The freezing point of water is 0 C and the boiling point of water is 100 C. 29 What is the zero point 0 K on the Kelvin scale called absolute zero. 30 A change of temperature equal to one kelvin is equal to a change of temperature of. how many degrees Celsius one, 31 Complete the diagram to show the reference temperatures in the Celsius and.
