grams (g) is used for mass (weight)
liters (l) is used for volume
meters (m) is used for distance

We will use a problem solving process
called dimensional analysis (tracks).
Example      25.0 cg = _______ g
25.0 cg 1 g
100 cg    = 0.250 g
Example 0.351 hl = _______ ml
0.351 hl 100,000 ml
1 hl              = 35,100
ml

Your turns - convert the following:
15.72 g = ______ mg 15.72 g = _____ kg
15.72 g       1000 mg
                  1g       = 15,720 mg
15.72 g        1 kg
                    1000g     = 0.01572 kg
Converting Temperature

F = 1.8C + 32
C = (F-32)  1.8
Density = m  v
D = m/v
intensive property
density is the same no matter size
50 grams of gold has the same density
as 150 grams of gold.
Important density to remember
water is 1.0 g/ml at 4 oC.
Density Problem
A substance has a volume of 1.74 ml
and a mass of 20.0 grams. What is the
density?
What is the substance? Use page 96 of
