### MWA 10 4.4 Conversions

1. 1. Making Conversions Slide 1 In this lesson, you will learn how to convert from a unit of volume to a unit of weight. For example, grain is often measured in bushels, a volume measure, but its weight may be needed to judge whether it is a safe load for a truck. Each gran has a different weight, so conversions between bushels and weight depend on knowing the conversion factor.
2. 2. Slide 2 Example 1: How many bushels (bu) of flax seed are there in 2.4 tonnes, if the conversion factor is 39.368 bushels/tonne?
3. 3. = 2.4 tonnes x 39.368 bushes/tonne = 94.5 bushels Slide 3 Example 1: How many bushels (bu) of flax seed are there in 2.4 tonnes, if the conversion factor is 39.368 bushels/tonne? Answer: There are approximately 94.5 bushels of flax seed.
4. 4. Slide 4 Example 2: Alphonse is making chicken kebabs for 14 people. His recipe suggests about 7 oz of chicken per person. At the grocery store, the weight of the chicken is labelled in kilograms. How much chicken does Alphonse need to buy?
5. 5. Calculate amount of ounces needed 14 people x 7 oz = 98 oz Convert to kilograms = 98 oz x 28.3495 g/oz = 2778.251 grams = 2.78 kilograms Slide 5 Example 2: Alphonse is making chicken kebabs for 14 people. His recipe suggests about 7 oz of chicken per person. At the grocery store, the weight of the chicken is labelled in kilograms. How much chicken does Alphonse need to buy? Answer: Alphonse will need to buy 2.78 kilograms of chicken.
