Example text

The denser the liquid, the higher the hydrometer floats. The density can be read from the calibrated stem. It is easier to talk about a newton (N) than about a kg  m/s2. As you might guess, the newton unit is named in honor of Sir Isaac Newton. The abbreviation of a unit named after an individual is capitalized, but the unit name itself is not: newton (N). We will encounter other such units during the course of our study. Conversion Factors Often we want to convert units within one system or from one system to another.
