Questions

  1. The difference between a law and a theory is the difference

between what and why. Explain.

  1. The scientific method is a dynamic process. What does this

mean?

  1. Explain the fundamental steps of the scientific method.
  2. What is the difference between random error and systematic

error?

  1. A measurement is a quantitative observation involving both a

number and a unit. What is a qualitative observation? What are

the SI units for mass, length, and volume? What is the assumed

uncertainty in a number (unless stated otherwise)? The

uncertainty of a measurement depends on the precision of the

measuring device. Explain.

  1. To determine the volume of a cube, a student measured one of

the dimensions of the cube several times. If the true dimension

of the cube is 10.62 cm, give an example of four sets of measurements

that would illustrate the following.

  2. precise but inaccurate data
  3. precise and accurate data

Give a possible explanation as to why data can be imprecise

or inaccurate. What is wrong with saying a set of measurements

is imprecise but accurate?

  1. What are significant figures? Show how to indicate the number

one thousand to 1 significant figure, 2 significant figures,

3 significant figures, and 4 significant figures. Why is the answer,

to the correct number of significant figures, not 1.0 for

  1. A cold front moves through and the temperature drops by

20 degrees. In which temperature scale would this 20 degree

change represent the largest change in temperature?

  1. When the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (TF) is plotted vs.

the temperature in degrees Celsius (TC), a straight-line plot

the use of renewable resources to produce the energy we need

to power our vehicles. One of the newer fuels that has become

more widely available is E85, a mixture of 85% ethanol and

15% gasoline. Despite being more environmentally friendly,

one of the potential drawbacks of E85 fuel is that it produces

less energy than conventional gasoline. Assume a car gets

28.0 mi/gal using gasoline at $3.50/gal and 22.5 mi/gal using

E85 at $2.85/gal. How much will it cost to drive 500. miles

using each fuel?
