the relationship of matter and energy
large particles in motion and their causes
heat and temperatures
vibrations and waves
specific repetitive motion
behavior of light
electricity and magnetism
behavior of very high speeding particles
behavior of subatomic particles
is the search for relationships between observed phenomen
observe, hypothesis, interpretation of results, and conlcusion
patterns, plan, representation, or description designed to show the structure of an object
system of measurement in science
uses prefixes to indicate powers of a base unit
human error and limitations of measuring device
accuracy, precision, and significant digits
sources of uncertainty measurements
is a description of how close a measurement is to the accepted value
how close all of your measurements are together
all digits in a measurement that are known as certainty, plus one that is uncertain
direct variation -graphs a line
inverse variation -graphs a hyperbola
varies directly-quadratic- graphs a parabola
order of magnitude
estimate of quantity to the nearest power of ten
all nonzero digits are...
zeros between significant digits are...
zeros at the end of a number and right of a decimals are...
zeros in front of a nonzero digit are...
zeros at the end of a number and left of a decimal are... unless indicated to be so
