Practice Scientific Notation Problems on page 43 


What is deminsional analysis? 

problem solving that uses conversion factors to get an answer 

What is a conversion factor? 

ratio of equivalent values to express the same quantity but in diff units; 

Practice conversion factors on page 44 and 45

Where do indepentant and dependent variables go on a graph? 

blah vs. halb
blah goes on left, halb goes on the bottom 


already given information on a graph there is no predicting 


all predicting, 50/50 guesses 

Give Symbol and Quantity:

1) m length 2) kg mass 3) s time 4) A electric current 5) K thermodynamic temp 6) cd luminous intensity 7) mol amt of substance 

G M K D C M M N P fill out! powers & prefix 

Giga = 10^9 Mega = 10^6 Kilo = 10^3 Deci = 10^1 Centi = 10^2 Milli = 10^3 Micro = 10^6 Nano = 10^9 Pico = 10^12 


when there is no kinetic enery at the atomic/molecular level
