How Do You Measure In Metrics?
[cm3 = mL (by definition)] & [for water: cm3 = mL = g]
Calculate % Error
|Calculate volume: L x W x H (cm3)||Mass the carton empty (grams)|
|Fill the carton with water.||Find the mass of the carton and the water (grams).|
|Subtract the mass of the empty carton from the full carton to find the mass of the water alone.|
|How many mL in the carton?|
|When mass (grams) of water is divided by volume(cm3 or mL) of water, the answer is ONE!|
|Water has a density of 1g/mL or 1g/cm3|
|Pre-iceberg Titanic has a density less than 1g/mL|
|Post-iceberg Titanic has a density more than 1g/mL|
