## Is a school bus centimeters or meters?

On average a 72-passenger school bus will be about 34 feet long or 10,36 meters or 1,036 centimeters.

## What unit would you use for measuring the mass of a school bus?

A school bus should be weighed in tons due to the fact that it definitely weighs more than a few pounds.

## Which unit of length is used for measuring length of a bus?

In units of measurement of length we use centimeter (cm) to measure.

## What are the different sizes of school buses?

School buses range anywhere from 20 to 45 feet in length. In general, buses that are 20-25 feet long are considered mini or short. While buses that are 25-35 feet long fall into the mid-size category, and buses over 35 feet are full-sized.

## How many rows are in a school bus?

A conventional school bus has 13 rows of seats on each side. However, the number of rows of seats is determined by the type of vehicle being used. School bus manufacturers determine the maximum seating capacity of each school bus.

## What is the smallest unit of mass?

The smallest unit of mass is ounces (oz). One ounce weighs about the same as a slice of bread. It is very light. The abbreviation for ounce is “oz”, from the 15th century Italian word “onza”.

## What is difference between mass and weight?

Mass is a measure of how much force it will take to change that path. Weight, on the other hand, is a measure of the amount of downwards force that gravity exerts on an object. This force increases with the object’s mass: the more inertia it has, the harder gravity pulls.

## Why does weight change but not mass?

Weight is a measure of how strongly gravity pulls on that matter. Thus if you were to travel to the moon your weight would change because the pull of gravity is weaker there than on Earth but, your mass would stay the same because you are still made up of the same amount of matter. The amount of that force is weight.

## What do we measure length in?

The standard unit of measuring length is a meter.

## What is the basic unit for measuring length?

The SI basic unit of length, or linear measure, is the meter (m). All measurements of length may be made in meters, though the prefixes listed in various tables will often be more convenient.

## What are the 3 types of buses?

Three types of bus are used.

- Address bus – carries memory addresses from the processor to other components such as primary storage and input/output devices.
- Data bus – carries the data between the processor and other components.
- Control bus – carries control signals from the processor to other components.

## What is a Type 1 bus?

A Type I school bus is a vehicle designed to carry more than 16 passengers and the driver.

## What is a Type 3 school bus?

TYPE III: Type III school buses and type III Head Start buses are restricted to passenger cars, station wagons, vans, and buses having a maximum manufacturer’s rated seating capacity of ten or fewer people, including the driver, and a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less.
