Explanation
The base unit of the metric system for length is the meter. It is defined as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second. The meter is used to measure small distances, such as the length of a pencil, as well as larger distances, such as the height of a building or the length of a road. It is a fundamental unit of measurement in the metric system and is widely used in scientific and everyday applications.

### Metric units have prefixes that represent multiples of the base. What is the prefix for 1000.0 ?

• A.

Kilo

• B.

Milli

• C.

Centi

• D.

Hecto

• E.

Mega

A. Kilo
Explanation
The prefix for 1000.0 is "kilo". In the metric system, "kilo" represents a multiple of 1000. Therefore, when we say "kilogram," for example, we mean 1000 grams. In this case, "kilo" is the appropriate prefix for 1000.0.

### Metric units have prefixes that represent multiples of the base. What is the prefix for 0.000001 ?

• A.

Kilo

• B.

Milli

• C.

Deci

• D.

Mega

• E.

Micro

E. Micro
Explanation
The prefix for 0.000001 is micro. In the metric system, micro is the prefix that represents one millionth (1/1,000,000) of the base unit. Therefore, when we have a value of 0.000001, it can be expressed as 1 micro unit.

• B.

Milli

• C.

Centi

• D.

Hecto

• E.

Micro

C. Centi
Explanation
The prefix "centi" represents a fraction of 1/100 or 0.01. In the metric system, prefixes are used to indicate multiples or fractions of the base unit. In this case, "centi" indicates a fraction of one hundredth, making it the correct prefix for 0.01.

• C.

12,000,000

• D.

0.012

• E.

0.00012

D. 0.012
Explanation
To convert milliliters (ml) to liters (l), you divide the value in milliliters by 1000. In this case, 12.0 ml divided by 1000 equals 0.012 liters.

### Convert 13,796,000 to scientific notation.Note: "e" below represents exponent. For example, 2.3 x 10 e5 means 2.3 times 10 to the 5th power.

• A.

0.000013796 x 10-e1

• B.

13.796 x 10e-2

• C.

1.3796 x 10e-7

• D.

13,796,000 x 10

• E.

1.3796 x 10e7

E. 1.3796 x 10e7
Explanation
The correct answer is 1.3796 x 10e7. This is because scientific notation is used to express very large or very small numbers in a more concise form. In this case, 13,796,000 is converted to 1.3796 and the exponent is 7, indicating that the decimal point is moved 7 places to the right. This results in a number that is 10 million times larger than the original number.

### What is the relationship between volume (ml) and mass (g) in the metric system?

• A.

1 ml = 1 g

• B.

1 ml = 1000 g

• C.

1000 ml = 1 g

• D.

100 ml = 1 g

• E.

1 ml = 100 g

A. 1 ml = 1 g
Explanation
The relationship between volume and mass in the metric system is that 1 milliliter (ml) is equal to 1 gram (g). This means that the volume and mass of a substance are equivalent in the metric system.

• E.

0.0232 x 10e-1

B. 2.32 x 10
Explanation
The correct answer is 2.32 x 10. This is because when converting a number to scientific notation, we want to express it as a number between 1 and 10 multiplied by a power of 10. In this case, 23.2 can be written as 2.32 x 10, where the exponent is 1.

### The density of water is 1.00. Convert 10 ml to g and cc.

• A.

1 g, 10 cc

• B.

0.1 g, 1 cc

• C.

10 g, 10 cc

• D.

• E.

1 g, 0.1 cc

C. 10 g, 10 cc
Explanation
The given question asks to convert 10 ml to g and cc. The correct answer states that the conversion is 10 g and 10 cc. This is because the density of water is 1.00, which means that 1 ml of water weighs 1 g. Therefore, 10 ml of water would weigh 10 g. Additionally, 10 ml is equal to 10 cc, as 1 ml is equivalent to 1 cc.
