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.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
sure. what is your question?
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

im all ears I need to learn
Sherica
right! what he said ⤴⤴⤴
Tamia
what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
a perfect square v²+2v+_
kkk nice
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

No. 7x -4y is simplified from 4x + (3y + 3x) -7y
is it 3×y ?
J, combine like terms 7x-4y
im not good at math so would this help me
yes

how do you translate this in Algebraic Expressions

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
Porter
many many of nanotubes

what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
Cesar
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
what is nano technology
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
