5. Calculate how much wire-netting you will need to go right round the hen-run. (You do not need a gate; you can step over.)

6. Challenge: Make a model of your hen-run. You may even make it to scale. Ask your educator to help you. (Use a simple scale, e.g. 1 cm =1 m).

1. Complete the following:

• 6 578 g = ____________kg
• 5,703 km = ______________ m
• 6 712 ml = ______________litres
• 7 68 mm = _______________ m
• 34 mm = _______________________m (5)

Solve the following sums and write down all the steps of your calculations:

2. 87 mm + 4 568 mm + 1,250 m (answer in metres)

3. An ant runs round the edge of a book that is 15 cm wide and 21,5 cm long. How far does the ant run?

4. Peter drinks 250 ml of water after a tennis match and then the coach gives him 350 ml of orange juice. How much liquid does he drink altogether?

5. The mass of a van is 2 250 kg when it is empty. Sixteen bags of oranges each with a mass of 15 kg are loaded onto the van. What is the mass of the van and its load together? (4)

6. Mother has 5 kg of flour. She uses three and a half kg of it. How much flour is left? (2)

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 seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years; 4.3 uses time-measuring instruments to appropriate levels of precision, including watches and clocks; 4.4 describes and illustrates ways of measuring and 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) and kilograms (kg); capacity using millilitres (ml) and litres (l); length using millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) and kilometres (km); 4.6 solves problems involving selecting, calculating with and converting between appropriate S.I. units listed above, integrating appropriate context 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; 4.8 investigates and approximates (alone and/or as a member of a group or team): perimeter, using rulers or measuring tapes.

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
Abigail
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
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
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
in general
s.
Graphene has a hexagonal structure

On having this app for quite a bit time, Haven't realised there's a chat room in it.
Cied
what is biological synthesis of nanoparticles
what's the easiest and fastest way to the synthesize AgNP?
China
Cied
types of nano material
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
Porter
many many of nanotubes
Porter
what is the k.e before it land
Yasmin
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
Cesar
I'm interested in nanotube
Uday
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
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
