Introduction to Measurement: Mass, Length and Volume—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Much of what we know about the physical world comes from measurements, requiring skill and precision to minimize errors within limitations. With the Introduction to Measurement: Mass, Length and Volume—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, make measurements using the metric system, learn the meaning of significant figures in the measurements, and compare the accuracy and precision of laboratory measurements.

Concepts

  • Measurement
  • Accuracy and Precision
  • Significant Figures
  • Experimental Error
