4. We know that there are 1 000 mm in 1 m

Thus: 2 347 mm = 2 m 347 mm= 2,347 m

Complete the table:

mm m
e.g. 4 328 4,328
..................... 3
367 .....................
..................... 4,7
28 .....................
..................... 0,067
6 .....................

5. In the same way 1 000 m = 1 km

Thus: 1 407 m = 1 km 407 m= 1,407 km

Complete the table:

Distance in m 2 368 ............ 426 ............ 38 ............ 9
Distance in km 2,368 7 ............ 0,6 ............ 1,48 ............

Activity 3:

  • To measure two-dimensional figures [LO 4.5.3]

To use standard units to record [lo 4.5.3]

Scale:

DID YOU KNOW?

When we draw something, e.g. a house, we don’t draw it as big as it actually is.

We draw it to scale. The shape stays the same but the size is different (smaller). The knife below is drawn on a scale of 1:4

Now think about maps. Normally a place will be drawn much smaller than it actually is in reality. A scale tells us how to measure distances on a map. In the map below 1 cm equals 500 km.

1. Answer the following questions:

1.1 What is the actual length of the knife above? 1_____

1.2

  1. What is the actual distance, according to the scale, from town

A to town B?....................

  1. And from C to D?....................

2. Determine the scale of each item below:

2.1 The actual length of the crayon is 15 cm.

Scale: .........................................

2.2 The actual length of the bottle is 80 cm.

Scale: .........................................

2.3 The actual length of the fish is 45 cm.

Scale: .........................................

  • Now measure the distance. _____ mm
  • How many cm is it?
  • How many m is it?

Now take any 340 mℓ cool drink tin and measure the distance around it in mm.

Assessment

LO 4
MeasurementThe learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.
We know this when the learner:
4.1 reads, tells and writes analogue, digital and 24-hour time to at least the nearest minute and second;
4.2 solves problems involving calculation and conversion between appropriate time units including decades, centuries and millennia;
4.3 uses time-measuring instruments to appropriate levels of precision including watches and stopwatches;
4.4 describes and illustrates ways of representing time in different cultures throughout history;
4.5 estimates, measures, records, compares and orders two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using S.I. units with appropriate precision for:
  • mass using grams (g) en kilograms (kg);
  • capacity using millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) en kilometres (km);
  • length using. millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) en kilometres (km);
4.6 solves problems involving selecting, calculating with and converting between appropriate S.I. units listed above, integrating appropriate contexts for Technology and Natural Sciences;
4.7 uses appropriate measuring instruments (with understanding of their limitations) to appropriate levels of precision including:
  • bathroom scales, kitchen scales and balances to measure mass;
  • measuring jugs to measure capacity;
  • rulers, metre sticks, tape measures and trundle wheels to measure length.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
