The "King Henry" saying helps us remember which metric prefixes? kilo, hecto, deka, -- deci, centi, milli
5m = ______ km .005km
5000m = _______ km 5km
5cm = ________ mm 50mm

45kL = _______ mL 45,000,000mL
298g = ______kg .298kg
78cL = _______ daL .078daL
What is mass? The amount of matter in something.
What is mass and volume together? Density
What is volume? The amount of space that something has or takes up.
4kg = ______ g 4000g
9kL = ________ L 9000L
6km = _______ m 6000m
5kg = _______ dg 50,000dg
What is the measurement of the pull of gravity on matter? Weight
3mL = ___________ kL .000003kL
What is a meter? A metric unit. It is used when measuring distance or length.
What do you call the amount of space that something has or takes up. volume
Is a meter a piece of lab equipment? No. It is a unit of measurement.
What is mass? How much matter something has... Or how much matter is in something.
What is density? Density is the mass of something compared to it's volume.
What is weight? The force or pull of gravity on matter... Or the force or pull of gravity on something.
What tool is used for measuring force or weight? Scale (Spring Scale)
What tool is used for measuring mass? Balance (triple beam, pan or digital)
What is the base unit for time? Seconds
What is temperature? The average amount of molecular movement in a specific area of an object.
Moving from larger units to smaller units is the same a s multiplying. True or False TRUE
What is the base unit for temperature? Kelvin (But degrees Celsius is commonly used)

What is the melting point of water in celsius? 0 degrees Celsius
What is the boiling point of water in celsius? 100 degrees Celsius
What is a gram? A metric unit of measurement for mass
What is a meter? A metric unit of measurement for distance or length or height or depth or width...
*What is room temp in Celsius? around 22 degrees Celsius
*What is capacity? The amount of available space inside something
Are capacity and volume similar? Yes, but not the same -they both have to do with space and size.
The width of a coin is about as long as what metric unit? a millimeter (mm)
A paper clip has about the same mass as what metric unit? A gram (g)
Are mass and weight similar on earth? yes -but very different when in space or other places in the universe!
Are the melting point and freezing point for a substances the same? Yes! Melting and freezing happen at the same temperature. It just depends which way the temperature is going.
What tool is used to measure the amount of matter in an object? A balance
What tool is used to measure force? A Spring Scale
What is the abbreviation for dekaliter? daL
What is the abbreviation for kiloliter? kL
What is the abbreviation for dekagram? dag

What is the weight of a 15N object in outer space? Nothing...
What is volume? the amount of space an object occupies.
What is mass? the amount of matter an object has.
What is the basic metric unit for weight? newton (N)
What is the basic metric unit for mass? gram (g)
What is the basic metric unit for LIQUID volume? liter (L)
What is the basic metric unit for SOLID volume? cubic meter or cubic centimeter or any cubic metric unit of length
Which measurement is constant (doesn't change) through out the universe - Mass or Weight? MASS! Weight will change with gravity!
What is measured with a balance? mass
What is measured with a graduated cylinder? Liquid volume
What can you measure with a metric ruler or meter stick? Distance, Length, width, depth, height, area and the volume of things like boxes and books!

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
