250 ml / 8 oz Plastic Measuring Jug.
This plastic measuring jug is a standard piece of laboratory equipment.
To create the perfect bouncing bubble solution it is really important to measure out the volumes of water, fairy liquid and glycerine accurately. This jug is perfect for measuring volumes of 5 ml increments.
Scientists never just grab handfuls of chemicals and toss them together. Accurate, precise measurement is a fundamental component of good science. To standardise measurements across all scientific disciplines scientists developed the International System of Units, known as SI Units. Even with a standardised system, there is room for uncertainty in the laboratory. Minimising this uncertainty ensures proper understanding of a process or experiment.
Scientific measurements use units to quantify and describe the magnitude of something.
There are many different units for the measure of length: inches, feet, centimetres, etc.
Using common units, scientists from different countries and cultures can easily interpret each others’ results.
The current list of SI units are:
- Metres (m) for length
- Litres (L) for volume
- Kilograms (kg) for mass
- Seconds (s) for time
- Kelvin (K) for temperature
- Ampere (A) for electrical current
- Mole (mol) for amount of substance, and
- Candela (cd) for luminous intensity.
