matteranything that has mass and takes up space
volumethe amount of space taken up by an object
liquid volume labelsliters or milliliters
meniscusthe curve at the surface of a liquid
solid volume labelscubic meters or cubic centimeters
regular solid volumemultiply length, width, and height
irregular solid volumeput objects in water and measure the amount of water is displaced
volume equalsone milliliter of water equals one cubic centimeter
volume toolgraduated cylinder
massthe amount of matter in an object
mass toolbalance scale
mass labelsmilligrams, grams, or kilograms
Why do scientists prefer mass?mass never changes because of location
weighta measure of the force of gravity on an object
source of gravitycomes from the center of the Earth
weight toolspring scale
weight labelsnewtons
compare mass & weightone newton = 100 grams on Earth
