## Content

In this module we are going to measure with the aid of various instruments.

We are going to measure:

• length,
• mass,
• circumference,
• area,
• volume,
• content,
• temperature and
• time.

## Activity: to measure and calculate a perimeter [lo 4.4.3, lo 4.8.1]

1. An ant must walk from A to B, then to C, D, E and again to A (right around – perimeter).

1.1 What instrument will you use to calculate how far the ant walks?

1.2 Now calculate the distance the ant has walked.

1.3 In what unit did you measure? _____________________________________

1.4 What unit did your friend use? _____________________________________

2. Take a look at the following figures. Are you able to tell the educator what the "ordinary" name for each one (excepting the square) is?

square

2.1 These shapes are regular. Why?

2.2 Calculate the perimeter of each shape (remember the units). Write the name of each shape, followed by the answer.

(a) __________________________________________________________________

(b) _________________________________________________________________

(c) __________________________________________________________________

(d) _________________________________________________________________

2.3 If the perimeter of a square can be calculated by means of the formula 4 x side, which formula would be used for each of these shapes? Write the name of the shape, followed by the answer.

(a) __________________________________________________________________

(b) _________________________________________________________________

(c) __________________________________________________________________

(d) _________________________________________________________________

2.4 What do we call the following shape?

_____________________________________________________________________

2.5 Can you perhaps deduce a formula for calculating the perimeter of a rectangle?

_____________________________________________________________________

REMEMBER THIS!

A square also happens to be a rectangle. It just happens to be one with four equal sides. All squares are rectangles, but all rectangles are not square.

3. Here are a few irregular shapes.

3.1 Why do we say that these shapes are irregular?

_____________________________________________________________________

3.2 Now calculate the perimeter of each of the irregular shapes.

A: __________________________________________________________________

B: __________________________________________________________________

C: __________________________________________________________________

## Assessment

Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 4.4: We know this when the learner estimates, measures, records, compares and orders two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using S.I. units with appropriate precision for:

4.4.3: length using millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) and kilometres (km);

Assessment Standard 4.8: We know this when the learner investigates and approximates (alone and/or as a member of a group or team):

4.8.1: perimeter using rulers or measuring tapes.

anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?

Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej

for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
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.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
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.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
