Observations Regarding Measuring Compact Objects
1. Measuring Tiny Objects
Background: The larger the amount of particles measured, the even more accurately one can decide the measurements of an individual particle.
Purpose: to decide the thickness of a tissue
Materials: A box tissues, metric ruler, calculator
1. With the ruler, gauge the thickness of an individual tissue.
Thickness of tissue = ___________ cm
2. With the ruler, gauge the thickness of 50 cells.
Thickness of 50 tissues = ___________ cm
3. Calculate the average thickness of 1 sheet of paper.
Equation: thickness of 1 sheet = thickness of several tissues/ (divided by)
number of tissues
Thickness of one sheet = _________
4. Which measurement did you are feeling most at ease thickness of 1 tissue,
or the thickness of 50 tissues? ______________________
4. Write a few sentences on everything you learned all about measuring small objects. How do you review it to measuring large objects?
