A tool is any instrument or simple piece of equipment that you hold in your hands and use to do a particular kind of work. We use tools on a daily basis and we have covered most of them and how they operate. Take up the quiz below and get to learn more.

• 1.

### A tool used to measure length, width, height, or depth.

Explanation
A ruler is a tool that is used to measure the length, width, height, or depth of an object. It typically has markings or units of measurement along its length, allowing for precise measurements to be taken. Rulers are commonly made of materials like plastic, wood, or metal and come in various lengths. They are widely used in fields such as construction, engineering, and design, as well as for everyday tasks like crafting or drawing.

### A tool used to measure length, width, height, or depth. It is useful for measuring curved objects.

• A.

Ruler

• B.

Measuring Tape

• C.

Measuring Cup

B. Measuring Tape
Explanation
A measuring tape is a tool used to measure length, width, height, or depth. Unlike a ruler, it is useful for measuring curved objects as it can easily wrap around curves and contours to provide accurate measurements. Measuring cups, on the other hand, are used for measuring volume and are not suitable for measuring dimensions. Therefore, the correct answer is measuring tape.

### This tool is used to measure liquids and loose solids such as powders...

• A.

Ruler

• B.

Dropper

• C.

Thermometer

• D.

Measuring Cup

D. Measuring Cup
Explanation
A measuring cup is the correct answer because it is specifically designed to measure liquids and loose solids such as powders. It has markings on the side that indicate the volume or quantity being measured, making it a useful tool for accurately measuring ingredients in cooking or baking. Rulers are used for measuring length or distance, droppers are used for transferring small amounts of liquid, and thermometers are used for measuring temperature. Therefore, these options are not suitable for measuring liquids and loose solids.

### This tool is used to magnify or enlarge an objects feature

• A.

Dropper

• B.

Magnifying Box

• C.

Hand Lens

B. Magnifying Box
Explanation
A magnifying box is a tool that is used to magnify or enlarge an object's features. It is a box-shaped device with a magnifying lens on top that allows the user to view small objects or details more closely. By placing the object inside the box and looking through the lens, the user can see the object with increased magnification, making it easier to examine and analyze its features. The dropper and hand lens are not used for magnification purposes, so they are not the correct answer.

### A tool that is used to pick up and release small amounts of liquid is called a _________________.

• A.

Dropper

• B.

Forceps

• C.

Thermometer

• D.

Inquiry

A. Dropper
Explanation
A dropper is a tool specifically designed to pick up and release small amounts of liquid. It usually consists of a glass or plastic tube with a rubber bulb at one end. By squeezing the bulb and then releasing it, the dropper can be used to collect liquid from a container and then dispense it in controlled amounts. This makes it a useful tool in various applications such as laboratory experiments, medical procedures, and even in cooking or crafting.

### A thermometer is a tool that is used to measure temperature.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A thermometer is a scientific instrument designed to measure temperature. It typically consists of a narrow, sealed glass tube containing a liquid (such as mercury or alcohol) that expands or contracts with temperature changes. The markings on the tube indicate the corresponding temperature. By placing the thermometer in contact with an object or environment, it allows for accurate measurement of the temperature. Therefore, the statement "A thermometer is a tool that is used to measure temperature" is true.

### A ______ _______ is a tool that is used to magnify or enlarge and objects features.

Hand Lens
Explanation
A hand lens is a tool that is used to magnify or enlarge an object's features. It is a small, handheld device that typically consists of a convex lens mounted in a frame. By looking through the lens, the user can see the object with increased clarity and detail. Hand lenses are commonly used in various fields such as biology, geology, and forensic science to examine small objects or specimens that require closer inspection.

### A ____________ is used to measure the weight or mass of an object.

scale
Explanation
A scale is a device that is used to measure the weight or mass of an object. It typically consists of a platform or tray where the object is placed, and a system of springs or sensors that detect the force exerted by the object. The scale then converts this force into a numerical value, which represents the weight or mass of the object. Scales are commonly used in various settings such as homes, kitchens, laboratories, and industries to accurately determine the weight or mass of objects for various purposes.
