For up to an additional 10 points on the exam, fill out the form on the last page as you study for the exam and present it to me when we take the exam.
Significant Figures/Digits
When data is measured, we must compose the number in such a way that indicates how accurate the instrument can measure.
ie: an instrument that can be used to measure a mass as 30.000g is more accurate than one that can do it as 30.0g.
How to count significant figures/digits – Follow the Atlantic Pacific rule
Practice: How many significant figures are in the following numbers?
1. 34345 = _________
2. 5.03 = _________
3. 420 = ________
Review Sheet for the Midterm
When we then use these numbers in arithmetic, the final product can only be expressed in line with the least significant figure. You may have to round the number to make it work.
How many significant figures need to be in the produce of:
1. 30 x 20.01 =
2. 0.002 divided by 10.34
Reading a Graduated Cylinder
Density
 Density is a comparison between the mass of a substance and it’s volume.


Every pure substance has its own unique density that can be used to confirm its identity
At times you may have to use a graduated cylinder to determine the volume of an irregularly shaped substance.
D=M/V
What is the volume of the object in the graduated cylinder? ______
Calculate the density of the object if the mass is
6g. ________g/mL
% Error
Observed Value – Accepted Value
% Error =  x 100
PRACTICE PROBLEM
Accepted Value
Calculate the % Error of a measurement that should have been 5g, but instead was 50g.
