What is the variable? Something you try to measure

What is the independent variable? Causes a change in dependent variable, the temperature (heat)

What is the dependent variable? Color of the tea was dependent on the heat

What are the control factors:

-same type of tea

-same amount of tea

-same amount of baking soda

-same temperature

-same stirring time

-same size tubes

Volume Notes

What unit of measurement to we measure in? cm3 (cubic centimeter)

-volume times length times width times height

What is the standard unit of length? Meter (m)

What does 1 centimeter equal in cubin centimeters? .01 cm3

Volumes of liquids

What do you use to measure volume? A graduated cylinder

What do you always have to check? the intervals or scale

What do units equal? Millileters (ml) or cubic centimeters

What does 1ml equal? 1cm3

Where do you read from the meniscus? The bottom

Balance Notes

What do you have to check? That the pan is clean and dry

What do you always have to do before EACH massing? 0 balance

Where do you have to push all the riders to? 0 (the left)

What do you never do? Switch the pan

What is the only way that you could pick up the balance? By the red bar

What are you not supposed to do when done? zero balance it

Box Questions

1. Why do you think baking soda is used in baking?

When heated, it releases as gas and it causes the dough/batter to rise.

3. How many cubin centimeters of water are reuqired to fill a graduated cylinder to the 50,0-mL mark?

You need 50 cm3 required to fill a graduated cylinder to the 50 mL mark

4. Rectangular box A has greater volume

Shorter length = big volume (doesn't matter)

5. Adding a stone to the graduated cylindr containing 25.0 cm3 of water raises the water level in the cylinder to the 32.0 cm3 mark. What is the volume of the stone?

The volume of the stone is 7mL (displaced)

6. A student has a large number of cubes that measure 1 cm along each edge.

a. How many cubes will be needed to build a cub that measures 2 cm along each edge?

8 cubes (2 cm)

b. How many cubes will be needed to built a cube that measure 3 cm along each edge?

27 cubes (3 cm)

c. What is the volume, in cubic centimeters, of each of the cubes in (a) and (b)?

8 cm3, 27 cm3

7. One rectangular box is 30 cm long, 15 cm wide, and 10 cm deep. A second retangular box is 25 cm long, 16 cm wide and 15 cm deep. Which box has the larger volume?

The second retangular box (B)

8. Figure A shows a cone-shaped graduate used for measuring the volume of liquids. Why are the divisions not equally spaced?

The less the surface, the more the depth. The more the surface, the less the depth.

11.What is the level of the liquid in Figure D(a) to the nearest half division? What is the level in Figure D(b) to the nearest half division?

a=4.0 cm3

b=1.25 cm3
