38. 12/5/13 Dimensional Analysis
I will review how to use dimensional analysis in order to manipulate chemical quantities to solve for mathematic procedures.
Dimensional Analysis - Explain
A step by step method used to convert from a known quantity to an unknown quantity using conversion factors
Derived Units & Conversion Factors
Derived Unit: A combination of SI units due to a mathematical operation
Density = mass (g)/volume (mL)
Conversion Factor: A ratio derived from the relationship between two different units
1 dozen roses= 12 roses
You can derive conversion factors from the known relationship between the unit you have and the unit you want
*Operations with Units
Cancellation occurs with the units in the same way that it occurs with numbers
a. Units are handled algebraically, just like numbers
b. Analysis of units can be a clue as to whether a problem was set up correctly
Calculations involving units must have the correct units shown throughout the working of the problem and attached to the answer
