Question 1.

Write sentences to compare the mass of the boxes. Use the words lighter, heavier, lightest and heaviest.

Answer:

1. The weight of an object is a force that pushes downwards. You can feel the weight of lots of different objects when you hold them. It is the reason we find it difficult to lift some objects at all.

2. Below is a set of scales. Scales can be used to compare the weights of two objects.

3. We place a mass at one end of the scale. There is nothing on the other end.

4. The weight of mass pushes down on this end of the scale and so this left side moves downwards.

5. This causes the other side to rise upwards.

Answer: mass

Mass is a measure of the amount of matter inside an object. An object can be quite small yet has a lot of matter inside of it.

A bar of gold for instance may be quite small and yet has a mass of 2 kilograms (kg)

Talking about kilograms, what is 1 kilogram?

One kilogram is the mass of 1 litre of water in its densest state.

Water is in its densest state when the temperature is close to 4 degrees Celsius.

The following cube will be able to hold 1 litre of water.

The volume of the cube = 10 × 10 × 10 = 1000 cm^{3}

In math 1 liter = 1000 cm^{3}

Question 4.

You use a ___ to measure the mass of an object.

Answer: measuring scale.

Explanation:

Scales of measurement in math are used to classify and/or quantify variables based on certain properties. Each grade of measurement has relevant properties that are crucial to know. The scale of measurement in math is commonly interpreted in the form of graphs. This can be described as the mechanism of marks at fixed intervals, which clearly explain the link between the units being used and their illustration on the graph. Data of Measurement scales are basically classified under the four scales of measurement that have frequent applications in statistical analysis:

The 4 types of scales of measurement include:-

1. Nominal Scale of Measurement

2. Ordinal Scale of Measurement

3. Interval Scale of Measurement

4. Ratio scales Scale of Measurement.
