define density | the mass in a specific volume |

formula for density | mass/volume in units of ? |

What tools can be used to calculate density | graduated cylinder and triple beam balance |

How do you read a graduated cylinder to determine volume | The curve of the water – meniscus |

How do you determine volume with an irregular solid | First measure just the liquid, then measure again once the solid has been added – find the difference |

Define volume | amount of space an object takes up |

volume is measured in: | liters (L) or milliliters (mL) |

Define mass | amount of matter in an object |

How do you measure mass | triple beam balance |

Mass is measured in: | kilograms (kg) grams (g), milligrams (mg) |

define weight | the force of gravity on an object |

How do you measure weight | scale |

Weight is measured in: | pounds (lbs) and ounces (oz) |
