Measurement of Mass

Category : 3rd Class

*         Measurement of Mass

 

The standard unit for the measurement of mass is kilogram (kg) and gram (g).

Mass of small object is measured in grams. 1 kilogram = 1000 grams. Therefore, one gram is thousandths part of one kilogram.

 

*              Addition of Measured Masses

Addition by Conversion

Following steps are used for the addition of two or more masses:

Step 1:   Convert kilograms into grams by multiplying thousand.

Step 2:   Add them by simple addition.

Step 3:   Express resulting numbers in gram.

(c) 70 kg 500 grams

(d) None of these

(e) All of these                   

 

Answer (a)

Explanation

 

 

Addition without Conversion

The following steps are used for the addition of two or more masses:

Step 1:   Arrange vertically kg under kg and grams under grams of all the given masses.

Step 2:   Add them by simple addition method starting from right.

Step 3:   If carry is generated then add generated carry to the next addition.

*               Subtraction of Measured Masses

Subtraction by Conversion

The following steps are used for finding the difference between two masses:

Step 1:   Convert the masses into grams.

Step 2:   Subtract the smaller mass from bigger mass.

Step 3:   Express the resulting numbers in grams.

(a) 1176 kg 176 grams

(b) 1107 kg 260 grams

(c) 1170 kg 500 grams

(d) none of these

(e) All of these

 

Answer (b)

Explanations

Weight of cements in the loaded truck

= 1107 kg 260 grams.  

Subtraction without Conversion

The following steps are used for the subtraction of masses:

Step 1:   Arrange vertically kg under kg and grams under grams of the givenmasses.

Step 2:   Subtract smaller from bigger mass starting from right or grams.

Step 3    Take borrow if required.

(c) 29 kg 800 grams

(d) none of these

(e) All of these

 

Answer (c)

Explanation     

 

*                Multiplication of Measured Masses

The following steps are used for finding the product:

Step 1:   Arrange the masses vertically.

Step 2:   Multiply the masses by simple multiplication from right or grams.

Step 3:   first three digits from the right of the product is in grams and remaining numbers are in kilograms.

Answer (c)

Explanation:

= 357 kg 120 grams.  

 

*                Division of Measured Masses

Following steps are used or the division:

Step 1: Arrange the measured mass in division.

Step 2: Divide by simple division method.

Step 3: Quotient is the division of the mass.
