Lab : Measuring Instruments
Introduction :
Measuring instruments allow us to collect information on various objects- but you
must learn to use them properly in order to obtain accurate measurements! In this lab,
you will learn (and practice) how to use the following instruments : Ruler, graduated
cylinder, triple beam balance, and thermometer to measure volume, mass and
temperature of different objects.
Materials: (List the instruments used for each activity)
