### A graduated cylinder measures in what unit?

• A.

ML

• B.

Mb

• C.

Mc

A. ML
Explanation
A graduated cylinder measures in milliliters (mL). This unit is commonly used to measure the volume of liquids. The mL is a metric unit of volume, and it is equivalent to one cubic centimeter (cc). Graduated cylinders have markings along the side that indicate the volume of liquid present, allowing for precise measurements to be taken. The mL unit is widely used in scientific experiments and laboratory work to accurately measure the volume of liquids.

### What does calibrate mean?

• A.

To adjust a machine to a certain standard

• B.

Mix chemicals by directions

• C.

Calculate all measurements to the nearest 100

A. To adjust a machine to a certain standard
Explanation
Calibrating means adjusting a machine to a certain standard. This process ensures that the machine is functioning accurately and producing reliable results. By calibrating the machine, any deviations or errors can be corrected, ensuring that it operates within the desired specifications. This is important in various industries where precise measurements and accurate readings are crucial, such as manufacturing, engineering, and scientific research. Calibrating machines helps maintain quality control, improves efficiency, and ensures consistency in the output.

### nClosed shoes must be worn on lab days.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Closed shoes must be worn on lab days to ensure safety and prevent any potential accidents or injuries.
