science

TermDefinition
Matter anything that has mass and takes up space
Mass matter in an object
Volume the amount of liquid is something
Weight gravity pull on an object
Dependent a resulting factor in a controlled experiment that is observed and measured to see if it changes due to the manipulation of another variable
control a standard to which all other levels are compared in a scientific experiment
experiment a course of action completed in order to test a hypothesis
variable part of the experiment that changes
constant part of an experiment that is held in the same condition for control and experimental
inference not a fact, but an interpretation of what the direct observations mean
scientific law describes what scientists expect to happen eveytime under a particular set of conditions
scientific theory a well tested explanation for a wide range of observations or experimental result
qualitative made by gathering information that can be recorded using descriptive lauguage
quanatitaive made by gathering infomation that can be recorded as a number with a measurement unit
inquire to ask for information
manipulated variable a factor in a controlled experiment that is intentionally changed by the experimenter
accuracy how close a particular measurement is to the correct vaule
calibration to get something straight
graduated cylinder a tool used to measure liquid
International System of Measurement an internationally accepted system of physical units
liquid made up of tiny vibrating particles of matter, such as atoms, held together by intermolecular bonds.
meniscus the curve in the upper surface of a liquid close to the surface of the container or another object, caused by surface tension
Newton a unit of measurement
precision consistency of repeated measurement
triple beam balance a scale
unit units are standards for measurement of physical quantities that need clear definitions to be useful. Reproducibility of experimental results is central to the scientific method. A standard system of units facilitates this.
