CHEM 001W Prep for General Chem 9/28/2016 ­ CH 1 PT II Measurement & Calculations Why do we care about  measurements? In order to collect data in the course of  scientific inquiry, we often need to make measurements. We also need to manipulate  measurements in order to interpret them. Measurements & Fundamental Units ● Distance (meters) ● Mass (grams) ● Time (seconds) ● Temperature (Celsius or K) Measurements & Derived Units ● Volume (centimeters^3 or liters) ● Density (grams/liters) ● Energy (Joule) Making a measurement & significant digits Using a graduated cylinder to make a volume measurement  ­ Read from bottom of meniscus (ex: 9.51mL → 3 significant digits “sig figs”) Significant digits in calculations and rounding (pg. 47 OpenStax) 1. Addition/Subtraction 2. Multiplication/Division 3. Multi­step calculations 4. Rounding off numbers/measurements to the correct number of sigfigs Ex: Report the answer of the calculation to the correct number of sig digits: (80.21g ­  79.93g) / 65.22mL 80.21 ­ 79.93 = 0.28g / 65.22mL = 0.00429 g/mL  Lowest number of sig digits determine where you round → = 0.0043 g/mL Numbers in Exponential Form (Scientific Notation) Expressing very large or very small numbers more easily 1. 1,700,525 g = 1.7 x 10^6 g 2. 0.000575 = 5.75 x 10^­4 g  Ex: 7.0 x 10^6 / 3.5 x 10^­3 Divide the numbers before the exponent and subtract the exponents → = 2.0 x 10^9 Unit Conversions 1. Using the metric system to convert between SI (International System)  units ­ You must memorize the prefixes & the conversion factors for each prefix  (e.g. 1kg = 1000g) Metric Prefixes:  Mili = 10^­3 1g = 1000mg 1mg = 0.0010g Conversions Think algebra!  Ex: 100.0mg = ? g a) PROPORTIONS 100.0mg / x g = 1000mg / 1g Cross multiply & solve for x → x = 0.1000g b) 100.0mg x 1g/1000mg = 0.1000g
