Study Notes
Energy Conservation
 Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another.
 Potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy in various systems.
Potential to Kinetic Energy Conversions
 Gravitational System: Lifting an object stores potential energy, which is released as kinetic energy when it falls.
 Spring System: A stretched spring contains potential energy that converts to kinetic energy when released, demonstrating energy conservation.
 Charged Particles: Separating oppositely charged particles stores potential energy, which converts to kinetic energy as they attract each other.
 Fuel Combustion: Chemical potential energy in fuel converts to kinetic energy, powering a car as the fuel burns.
Scientific Method
 Utilizes quantitative analysis to understand materials, moving beyond trial and error.

Steps:
 Observation: Can be qualitative (visual) or quantitative (measured).
 Hypothesis: A testable and falsifiable explanation for observations.
 Experimentation: Designs predictions based on the hypothesis, executed to test them.
 Conclusions: Assess experimental data to validate or invalidate the hypothesis.
SI Base Units
 Mass: kilogram (kg)
 Length: meter (m)
 Time: second (s)
 Temperature: kelvin (K)
 Amount of substance: mole (mol)
 Electric current: ampere (A)
 Luminous intensity: candela (cd)
SI and English Equivalent Quantities

Length:
 1 km = 1000 m
 1 m = 100 cm
 1 cm = 0.01 m

Volume:
 1 mÂ³ = 1,000,000 cmÂ³
 1 dmÂ³ = 1000 cmÂ³

Mass:
 1 kg = 1000 g
Significant Figures
 Multiplication/Division: Output retains the number of significant figures from the measurement with the fewest significant figures.
 Addition/Subtraction: Output follows the measurement with the fewest decimal places.
 Rounding rules: Adjust based on digits removed (greater than 5, less than 5, or exactly 5 followed by zeros).
Precision and Accuracy
 Precision: Closeness of measurements in a series.
 Accuracy: Closeness of measurements to the true value.

Errors:
 Systematic error: Affects all measurements in one direction (higher or lower).
 Random error: Causes variations above and below the true value.
Density
 Defined as mass per unit volume, it is a characteristic physical property at given temperature and pressure.
 Density varies by substance, e.g.:
 Water: 0.998 g/cmÂ³
 Gold: 19.3 g/cmÂ³
Conversion Factors
 Ratios used to express quantities in different units, essential for converting measurements accurately in calculations.
Laboratory Practices
 Understanding the limits of measuring devices influences the accuracy of significant figures.
 Exact numbers have no uncertainty and do not limit significant figures in calculations.
