What Is a Measurement?
Quantitative
observation
 Comparison to an
agreed upon
standard
 Every measurement
has a number and a
unit

A Measurement
The unit tells you to what standard you
 The number tells you:

1. What multiple of the standard the object
measures.
2. The uncertainty in the measurement.
Scientists have measured the average
global temperature rise over the past
century to be 0.6 °C
°C tells you that the temperature
is being compared to the Celsius
temperature scale.
 0.6 tells you that:

The average temperature rise is 0.6
times the standard unit of 1 degree
Celsius.
2. The confidence in the measurement
is such that we are certain the
measurement is between 0.5 and
0.7 °C.

Scientific Notation

We should all be familiar with this but I
just want to remind you of a few things!!!

S.N. is an easy way to express VERY
large or VERY small numbers

Chemistry most of the time deals with
extremely small number considering we
3 parts to S.N.

How to Express a number in
Scientific Notation
Move the decimal point to obtain a number
between 1 and 10.
2. Write the result from Step 1 multiplied by
10 raised to the number of places you
moved the decimal
1.
** The exponent is POSITIVE if you moved
the decimal to the LEFT
** The exponent if NEGATIVE if you moved
the decimal to the RIGHT

Dimensional Analysis

EASY way to convert from one unit to
another unit!!

WE will be doing this ALL YEAR long!
So you better pay attention now!

UNITS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
Units
Always write every number with its
associated unit.
 Always include units in your calculations.

 You can do the same kind of operations on
units as you can with numbers.
○ cm × cm = cm2
○ cm + cm = cm
○ cm ÷ cm = 1
 Using units as a guide to problem solving is
called dimensional analysis.
Problem Solving and
Dimensional Analysis
Many problems in chemistry involve using
relationships to convert one unit of measurement
to another.
 Conversion factors are relationships between two
units.

 May be exact or measured.

Conversion factors generated from equivalence
1in
statements.
2.54cm
 e.g., 1 inch = 2.54 cm can give1in
2.54or
cm
Problem Solving and
Dimensional Analysis, Continued


Arrange conversion factors so the starting unit cancels.
 Arrange conversion factor so the starting unit is on
the bottom of the conversion factor.
May string conversion factors.
 So we do not need to know every relationship, as
long as we can find something else the starting and
desired units are related to :
desired unit
start unit 
 desired unit
start unit
related unit desired unit
start unit 

 desired unit
start unit
related unit
Systematic Approach
1.
Write down the given amount and unit.
2.
Write down what you want to find and unit.
3. Write down needed conversion factors or
equations.

drive.

Day Four
Exact Numbers vs. Measurements

Sometimes you can determine
an exact value for a quality of an
object.
 Often by counting.
○ Pennies in a pile.
 Sometimes by definition
○ 1 ounce is exactly 1/16th of 1 pound.

Whenever you use an instrument
to compare a quality of an object
to a standard, there is
uncertainty in the comparison.
Reporting Measurements
Measurements are written to indicate the
uncertainty in the measurement.
 The system of writing measurements we
use is called significant figures.
 When writing measurements, all the digits
written are known with certainty except
the last one, which is an estimate.


Skillbuilder 2.3—Reporting the Right
Number of Digits

A thermometer used to
measure the temperature of
a backyard hot tub is shown
to the right. What is the
correct number of digits?
Reporting Numbers with Sig. Figs

When we report numbers in this class
we need to make sure that we do not
report them more specific than they
really are. WHAT???
Volume of a box
Length = 7.12 cm
Width = 2.15 cm
Height = 2.15 cm
How do I know if a number is
significant?
All NONZERO digits are significant
2. Zeros between two nonzero numbers
are significant
3. Trailing zeros are significant
4. Leading zeros are NOT significant,
they are only place holders
5. Zeros at the end of a number but before
a decimal are NOT significant

Significant Figures in
Calculations

The difference and sum carries the
same number of decimal places as the
quantity carrying the FEWEST decimal
places.

3.449 cm – 0.76 cm =
