basic metric unit of volume
to solve a problem and gather the info
why scientists use science skills
specialization
studying or working in one part of a subject
degree Celsius
metric unit of temperature
kilogram
basic unit of mass
to test the hypothesis
why scientists design experiments
astrophysics
outer space
scientific method
model or guide used to gather information and solve problems
laws of motion
the laws seat belts are based on
biology and chemistry
the two branches of science bio-chemistry combine
temperature
measure of how hot or cold something is
physical science
study of matter and energy
multiplying its length and width
how the area of a rectangle is found
inferring
forming a conclusion based on facts without making observations
inorganic chemistry
substances that do not contain carbon
predicting
stating ahead of time what you think would happen based upon what you already know
one millileter
one cubic centimeter is the same as
thermometer
what temperature is measured with
1 meter
100 centimeters
thermodynamics
heat
acoustics
sound
meter
basic SI and metric unit of length
mass remains the same
the weight of an object can change.. but...
measuring
comparing an unknown value to a value
hypothesis
suggested solution to a problem
charts, graphs, tables
how scientists organize their data
1 meter
1000 millimeters
balance
what the intrument is to measure mass on
Fahrenheit or Celsius scale
scales temperatures are usually measured on
units of 10
what the metric system and SI are based on
1 kilometer
1000 meters
kelvin scale
scientinsts who work with very low temperatures use this kind of scale
nuclear physics
nucleus of the atom and its changes
organizing
working in an orderly way... putting your info. in order
biochemistry
chemical make-up of living things
matter and its changes
the study of chemistry
1 liter
1000 millileters [mL] in..
unit
amount used to measure something
optics
light
cubic centimeters
what volume can be measured in for solids
volume
amount of space something takes up
energy and changes among forms of energy
the study of physics
graduated cylinder
used to measure the volume of a liquid
modeling
using a copy of what you are studying to help explain it.. it can be larger or smaller than the original
gravitational pull
what weight measures
weight
measure of the pull of gravity on an object
researching
reading, experimenting, etc.
organic chemistry
most substances containing carbon
meniscus
curved surface of a liquid in the graduated cylinder
analyzing
studying information carefully
mass
amount of matter in an object
observing
using your senses.. must pay close attention to everything that happens
1 kilogram
1000 grams
mechanics
motion of objects
classifying
grouping this based on how they are alike
communicating
sharing information
data
information
