Measuring Matter

Everything in the universe is made up of matter--but how, exactly is that matter measured? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to mass, volume, and density, three of matter’s key physical properties. First, you’ll find out why measuring these properties is so darned important in the first place, and why scientists use the metric system to record these measurements. Next, you’ll learn the definitions of mass, volume, and density, as well as the ways of measuring each. Finally, Tim and Moby will clue you in to topics like displacement and the difference between mass and weight--all key facts you’ll need to know before you can master physics and chemistry. So get out your scale and your calculator, and come along for the ride!
