Unit B - Measurement

Remember that in this cumulative course, all "old" vocabulary is always fair game.

  • metric prefixes and metric conversions
  • derived units; squared and cubed units
  • compound units; g/ml, cm/sec, $/pound, etc
  • 1 cubic centimeter = 1 milliliter
  • density definition and calculations
  • viscosity
  • accuracy vs precision, random vs systematic error
  • percent error & percent yield calculations
  • significant figures; identification of and rounding off after calculations − addition/subtraction vs multiplication/division
  • using measuring devices to the appropriate degree of exactness
  • dimensional analysis
  • graphing & slope
  • floating and sinking as a comparison of relative density
