I The Study of Chemistry I Classifications of Matter Ill Properties of Matter IV Units of Measurement V Uncertainty in Measurement VI Dimensional Analysis 1 The Study of Chemistry Chemistry the study of matter and its gragerties the changes that matter undergoes and the energy associated with these changesquot Understanding chemistry requires thinking at two levels macroscopic properties amp behavior we can see eg mass volume color flammability submicroscopic properties amp behavior we cannot see eg atoms molecules chemical bonds modern instruments can see these today 2 2 8 3

chose to make O OH equal to 25 C and each Hawkeye degree half the size of a Celsius degree What is the boiling point of water on the Hawkeye scale 5 Uncertainty in Measurement The number of significant figures in a measurement depends upon the measuring device 323390 Accuracy vs Precision accuracy nearness to the true value the bull s eye nearness to the other measurements precision systematic error a constant error that affects all measurements the same random error a variable error that affects each measurement differently 11 Significant Figures in Calculations The term significant figures refers to digits that were measured When rounding calculated numbers significant figures must be considered to avoid overstating the accuracy of answers All digits are significant except zeros that are used only to position the decimal point Make sure that the measured quantity has a decimal point Start at the left of the number and move right until you reach the first nonzero digit Count that digit and every digit to it s right as significant Zeros that end a number and lie either after or before the decimal point are significant thus 1030 mL has four significant figures and 5300 L has four significant figures Numbers such as 5300 L are assumed to only have 2 significant figures Aterminal decimal point is often used to clarify the situation but scientific notation is the best Rules for Significant Figures in Answers 1 For addition and subtraction The answer has the same number 12f decimaipimx ax there are in the mmmmm with thefewext decimatpimx Example adding two
