# Matter & Measurement

### Matter & Measurement Test

TermDefinition
weight a measurement of the gravitational pull on an object
mass the amount of matter in an object
meniscus bottom part of the curve of the liquid being measured
volume amount of space an object takes up
density the amount of matter within a particular space.
condensation change from a gas to a liquid
graduated cylinder tool used to measure volume of an irregular object
ruler tool used to measure the volume of a regular object
Physical Properties of liquid water density - 1.0 g/mL has a definite volume boils at 100 degrees C
Newtons unit of measurement for weight
Spring Scale tool used to measure weight
triple beam balance tool used to measure the mass of an object
Formula for Measuring Volume V = L x W x H
Formula for Measuring Density D = MASS divided by VOLUME
Density of Water 1.00 g/mL
Buoyancy the upward force that keeps things afloat
Archimedes Principle an object will float when the upward buoyant force is EQUAL TO the weight of the object
Objects will FLOAT when their density is less than 1.00 g/mL (density of water)
Objects will SINK when their density is more than 1.00g/mL (density of water)
