(Chapter 7: Unit Conversions, Chapter 8: Density, Chapter 10:
Percents)
1.
0.38% = __0.0038___ as a decimal
2.
0.0026 = __0.26%___ as a percent
3.
0.015% = ___0.015 ___ /100
4.
The density of B-mercaptoethanol is 1.1 g/mL. If you need to add
0.18 g of this chemical to a solution, how much volume should you measure
out?
1.1 g = 0.18 g
X = (0.18 g)(1 mL) = 0.16 mL
1 mL

1.1 g
SOLVE PROBLEMS 5-6 USING THE PROPORTION METHOD
Fill in the Blanks
1 week = 7 days
5.
12 weeks = ____84__ days = ____2016___ hours
1760 yds = 1 mi
6.
1 day = 24 hours
1 yd = 3 ft
_0.0034___ mi = ____6____yds = 18 ft
1 ft = 12 in

SOLVE PROBLEM 7 USING THE UNIT CANCELLING METHOD
Relationships
1 km = 1000 m = 103 m
1 cm = 10 mm
1 m = 1000 nm = 103 nm
1 m = 100 cm = 102 cm
1 mm = 1000 m = 103 m
2.5 cm = 1 in
7.
1.5 cm = __15_ mm = _1.5 X 104_m = 1.5 X 107__ nm
