2. What do the following prefixes mean: mega, kilo, deci, centi, milli, micro, nano, pico

mega (M) = 106, kilo (k) = 103, deci (d) = 10-‐1, centi (c) = 10-‐2, milli (m) = 10-‐3, micro (μ) = 10-‐6,

nano (n) = 10-‐9, pico (p) = 10-‐12 3. Describe the difference between accuracy and precision.

Accuracy is getting the desired result (For example: getting a 100 on the midterm)

Precision is getting the same result every time (For example: getting a 75 on every test) 4. What is the difference between an extensive and an intensive property?

Extensive property changes based on the amount of substance (mass, volume)

Intensive properties are independent of amount (color, texture, density) 4. State the number of significant digits in

a. 0.00451

b. 1.00451
