Archaeology The study of past cultures through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts
Weight A measure of gravitational force exerted on an object (This will change when you are on the moon)
Mass A measure of the amount of matter in an object (This will stay constant no matter where you go)
Liters (L) or Milliliters (mL) The unit used most often to measure the volume of a liquid
Length X Width X Height The equation for finding the volume of a regularly shaped object
Cubic centimeters (cm 3) The unit used to express the volume of a solid object
Weight is expressed in Newtons (N)
Mass is expressed in Kilograms (kg), grams (g), and milligrams (mg)
