What were I Trying to Find Out?
In your life, have you ever wonder how big is your knees or how much your heart weight or how old are you when converting it into seconds? In this unit, we inquired through how does measurement effect our body in different ways such as your height or weight or etc.
What did I Discover?
After inquiring through our mysterious body, I have collected the data and form into a chart of measurements. While creating the chart, I have discovered that when converting measurements into mili, centi, basic and kilo rules, you need to always multiply or divide it into 10, 100 and 1,000.
What Surprised me?
What surprised me during this unit was that when you're figuring the volume of your body irregular shaped body, you can just put yourself in a container which is completely full of water, the water which spilled when you got in the container, is the exact volume of your body. This was surprising because water is part of nature and most of the times, when you put experiments to it, it will give some precise results.
What were I good at?
In this unit, I think I was good at having close estimates because I used the measurement I did like 1 month ago and use various equations to convert the estimate into mili, centi, basic and kilo rules. For example, when I measured the size of my foot, I used the measurement I got from the length of my shoe and subtract by 1 centimeter to get the estimate. However, I still didn't estimate the precise answer.
What do I need to work on?
Something that I need to work on is that to know how to use the measuring tools appropriately because then, you will not have a precise answer even though you used a high technique tool and also, you can injure somebody by using it as a weapon to hit somebody. For example, when tried to find out what is the volume of my water bottle, I poured the water in the mass cylinder not carefully, so some water spilled. Therefore, I needed to do it over and over again until I got it.
What do I want to know Now?
There lots of things that you can measure in your body, but what I want to know more is that how can you find the mass or the weight of your foot because if you just put your feet on the scale, the leg will impact the foot's weight. Therefore, I wonder what other ways are there to measure the weight of my feet. So far, I have one idea and that is to chop off our feet, put it on the scale, and tape it back to the legs.
For the conclusion, I think it has been a good experience to measure and notice how mysterious our body is and what other questions can we still inquire about.
