How Do You Measure In Metrics?

[cm^{3} = mL (by
definition)] & [for water: cm^{3} =
mL = g]

Measuring Length Calculating Volume Measuring Volume Measuring Mass Calculating Density Calculate % Error |

Calculate volume:
L x W x H (cm^{3}) |
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(cm^{3} or mL) of water, the answer is
ONE! | |||

Water has a density of 1g/mL or
1g/cm^{3} | |||

Pre-iceberg Titanic has a density less than 1g/mL | |||

Post-iceberg Titanic has a density more than 1g/mL |
