Metric System Review

Directions: Please don't peek at the answers unless your completely done with the practice test. If you have any concerns about your answers please see me as soon as possible.

 

Definitions              Instruments             Base Units

Volume                  B                           1 Down - Liter

Mass                     A                           2 Down - Gram

Length                  C                           3 Across - Meter

 

Conversions (Think: Kathy Has Dirty Underwear Don't Check Mine)

900 mg = .09 dkg (Move decimal 5 spots to the left)

2.3 kg = 2,300 g (Move decimal 3 spots to the right)

.017 km = 1700 cm (Move decimal 5 spots to the right)

40 dm = .04 hm (Move decimal 3 spots to the left)

30 L = 30,000 ml (Move decimal 3 spots to the right)

.001 dL = .0000001 kL (Move decimal 4 spots to the left)

 

Circle the unit you would use to measure each of the following.

1. Capacity of a tank - liter

Puzzle Answer: She Couldn't Control Her Pupils !

 

Density

1. Mass / Volume (Remember the "Heart Shape")

2. Triple Beam Balance

3. grams

4. Graduated Cylinder (Irregular) / Ruler (LxWxH)

5. liters

6. More (Water = 1.0 g/ml); Sink

7. 15g / 10 cm3 = 1.5 g/cm3 (Sink)

8. 2.5 g / 1.7 ml = 1.47 g/ml (Sink)

9. 2.5g / 7.5 cm3 = .33 g/cm3 (Float)

10. 2.9g / 1.8 cm3 = 1.6 g/cm3 (Sink)

11. C = (.95 g/cm3); The ball is very close to suspending (Neutral bouyant) but is still slightly floating.
