To help others learn how to do dimensional analysis, conversion factor, calculate distance, velocity, and time. This packet will help others understand the overall concept of basic science and motion forces

This packet teaches the concepts of basic science and motion forces.

Tutorial

Learn how to complete dimensional analysis problems through this video.

Conversion factor is switching systems. Such as, miles to kilometers. But dimensional analysis is switching units, such as centimeters to meters.

Area: length x width (cm3)

cm3--centimeters cubed

Volume: length x width x height (cm3 or mL)

cm3--centimeters cubed

Density: mass/volume (mass dived by volume) -- (g/mL) -grams per milliliter

Speed:

-how fast something is moving

-the rate of change of position

**always positive

Velocity:

-rate of chage of position in a specific direction

**can be positive or negative

--negative velocity means something is traveling in the opposite direction
