### How are the different units of measurement such as length mass volume temp and time associated to each other?

A meter (length) was originally defined as a fraction of the distance from the North Pole (geographic not magnetic) to the equator passing thru Paris, France. One hundredth of a meter is a centimeter, cm, which was used to make a volume of 1 cm3 which was defined to be a milliliter (volume). If this was a volume of water it was defined as 1 gram (mass). So mass, volume, and length were connected. NOT…

### Which of the four quantities that are associated with matter length mass volume and temperature is not considered to be a fundamental property?

One of the definitions of "matter" is that it occupies space and possesses rest mass. By this definition, mass is fundamental and since volume is measured in terms of length cubed - both length and volume would also be fundamental (although length really shouldn't be included if you include volume since one is just derived from the other). Temperature, on the other hand is NOT fundamental to matter. Matter can have a temperature, but temperature…

### Why is a liter a derived unit and not a fundamental unit?

Quite simply, because that's the way the SI was defined. It really depends on the choice of base units - for the SI, the meter (a unit of length) was defined as the base unit; meter cubed is the derived unit for volume. A liter is 1/1000 of that, and is therefore also derived from the meter. You can just as well invent a unit of measures in which a certain volume is the base…

### How do the units of volume differ from the units of area?

Length is a one-dimensional quantity, area is a two-dimensional quantity, and volume is a three-dimensional quantity. Length is defined in terms of linear units, feet (ft) and meters (m), for example. Area is defined in terms of square units, such as square feet (sq ft or ft2) or square meters (sq m or m2). Volume is defined in terms of cubic units, such as cubic feet (cu ft or ft3) or cubic meters (just m3)…

### Why is volume not included in the SI unit?

Volume is the cube of the length, just as area is the square of the length. For the same reasons (avoiding multiplicity of units which are not basic or fundamental quantities) that no separate UoM is devised for Area, nor for Volume. SI established basic Units of Measurement (AKA: UoM) of dimensions such as mass, length and time, and then defined other "derived" units in terms of the basic dimensions in those units. Instead of…

### How are basic units of length volume and mass related?

The base unit of length is the meter, the unit of volume is the cubic meter. You can also take the third power of other units of length to get a unit of volume, for example cubic foot, cubic light-year or cubic angstrom. The basic unit of mass is the kilogram; it is not currently derived from the unit of length, although it was originally defined as the mass of one cubic decimeter of water.

### Is 1 ml equivalent to 1 cc?

Yes. A cc (cubic centimeter) and a mL (milliliter) are equal to each other in terms of volume. Technically, 1 ml is the volume of 1 gram of water at 4 degrees C. A cubic centimeter, on the other hand, is defined by length which in turn is defined by atomic vibrations. It works out that they're the same to many decimal places -- enough for almost all laboratory work. In medical literature, the milliliter…

### What is the formula in calculating for the volume of a square?

Squares do not have "volume". They are 2-dimensional and only have "area". The formula for the area of a square is to multiply the length of one side of the square by itself. A cube is a little like a square, but 3-dimensional. It has a "volume." You calculate that volume by multiplying the length of one edge by itself and then mutiplying that number by the length of the edge again. If it is…

### Why area and volume are volume are not considered as base units although they depend upon length?

Either could be but the conversion from length to area and volume, in terms of units, is simpler. Area = Length2 and Volume = Length3. If Area were the base, then Length = Area0.5 or sqrt(Area) and Volume = Area3/2 - not a convenient relationship. If Volume were the base, then Length = Volume1/3 or cubert(Volume) and Area = Volume2/3 - again not a convenient relationship. Length is required far more often than area or…

### What is the Derivation of formula of volume of cuboid?

In the case of a rectangular cuboid, I would say that the volume is simply DEFINED to be length x width x height. The volume of other, more complicated shapes, can then be derived, based on this basic definition. But you do need to have a starting point, i.e., "How is volume even defined in the first place?"Just to show that this definition makes sense, think of a rectangular cuboid as having integer values for…

### What is Ampere?

The ampere (it is not capitalised), symbol A, is the SI Base Unit for electric current, which is defined in terms of the force between two, parallel, current-carrying conductors, due to the interaction of their magnetic fields, i.e: 'that constant current which, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length and negligible cross-sectional area and placed one metre apart in a vacuum, would produce between them a force equal to 2 × 10-7…

### What kind of properties of matter are mass weight volume and density?

im in 8th grade.. but Volume, then, is measured in terms of length, and can be defined as the amount of three-dimensional space an object occupies. Volume is usually expressed in cubic units of length-for example, the milliliter (http://www.answers.com/topic/ml), also known as the http://www.answers.com/topic/cubic-centimetre (cc), is equal to 6.10237 · 10−2 in3. As its name implies, there are 1,000 http://www.answers.com/topic/milliliter in a liter. What is the properties of Density please tell at " julio-M@live.com

### Define the ampere in terms of charge flow rate?

Although an ampere corresponds to a coulomb per second, this is not the way in which it is defined. Instead, it is defined in terms of the force between two, parallel, conductors, as follows: The ampere is defined as 'the constant current that, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length and negligible cross-sectional area and placed one metre apart in a vacuum, would produce between them a force equal to 2 ×…

### How are area and volume diffrent?

Area is defined as the extent of a 2-dimensional surface enclosed within a boundary. In contrast, volume is the amount of 3-dimensional space occupied by an object. As a result, area and volume have different values. For example, a square is a 2-d shape, so its volume = 0, but its area = length x length. Similarly, a cube's surface area = 6 x length2 whereas it's volume = length3.

### Does a liquid keep its volume?

Liquid is the state of matter that has a defined volume, but not a defined shape. As opposed to a solid which has defined shape and volume, or a gas which has neither a defined shape nor volume. So the short answer is yes, a liquid will keep its volume. However, in the real world the volume of a liquid will vary as temperature and atmospheric pressure conditions change before transitioning to either a solid…
