Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm supposed to make measurements but the values decrease?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you just reading? i see 1.2, 6.65, 12.09

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes the value can decrease because of cohesive forces :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But are the numbers in a measuring cylinder in that order?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think the idea is to make sure you read at the bottom of the meniscus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's from my intro to chemistry course, measurements and significant figures lesson.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you are just identifying what each unit mark means

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So is it 2.2 mL, 0.4 mL, and 0.9mL?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I looked at the greatest number... and subtracted.. but nvm I'm just so confused, do you understand this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1applying this to chemistry I still think you are just learning to read at the bottom of the meniscus and to identify the value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look at the first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the bottom of the curve (the meniscus) is at the second marker and each marker is 0.1 so the measurement is 1 + 2*.1 = 1.2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But why are the numbers in that order?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 2nd one the "line is between the .6 and the .7 and we have 6 whole units reading is 6 + 0.6 + 0.05 = 6.65

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it doesn't matter how it looks? I'm sorry if I'm sound obsessed but I was just confused because in real life a graduated cylinder looks different. lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no I think we read right side up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I can't go back that far to think what a measuring cylinder in the lab looks like sad

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you see why the last reading was not 0.9 but 0.09 for the partial?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because it doesn't touch the line? it looks like there is a space of about 0.01 between?
