General Chemistry 1 Math Review International System of Units (SI) 3 Volume – SI derived unit for volume is cubic meter (m ) Density – SI derived unit for density is kg/m 3 Density Example 1: Gold is a precious metal that is chemically unreactive. It is used mainly in jewelry, dentistry, and electronic devices. A piece of gold ingot with a mass of 301 g has a volume of 15.6 cm . Calculate the density of gold. Solution We are given the mass and volume and asked to calculate the density. Therefore, from Equation (1.1), we write Scientific Notation Significant Figures Sig Fig Examples: Carry out the following arithmetic operations to the correct number of significant figures: (a)11,254.1 g + 0.1983 g (b)66.59 L − 3.113 L (c)8.16 m × 5.1355 (d) 0.0154 kg  88.3 mL (e) 2.64 × 10 cm + 3.27 × 10 cm 2 Solutions: In addition and subtraction, the number of decimal places in the answer is determined by the number having the lowest number of decimal places. In multiplication and division, the significant number of the answer is determined by the number having the smallest number of significant figures. a) b) 8) d) e) First we change 3.27 × 10 cm to 0.327 × 10 cm and then carry out the addition (2.64 cm + 0.327 cm) × 10 . Following the procedure in (a), we find 3 the answer is 2.97 × 10 cm. Dimensional Analysis Method of Solving Problems Example: An average adult has 5.2 L of blood. What is the volume of blood in m ? Strategy The problem can be stated as 3 ? m = 5.2 L How many conversion factors are needed for this problem? 3 −2 Recall that 1 L = 1000 cm and 1 cm = 1 × 10 m.
