The Base Unit for MASS is kilogram
This package of ground
meat is about 1 kg
(1 kilogram).

A new born baby can be about the mass of 3 kg...

and a six week old puppy can be as heavy
as 1 kg.



A 5 kg roast can easily serve
over 10 or 12 people.


A 10 kg turkey should
easily serve
about 10 happy appetites.


 

A 40 kg bag of concrete mix
requires a strong back
to carry.

 

Smaller Measurements from a kilogram

1 gram
(1 g)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning 1000 times.
So, 1 000 g (grams) is the mass of 1 kg (kilogram).
Pronounced "KILL-oh-gram" NOT "kill-AH-gram".

Smaller Measurements from a gram

1 milligram
(1 mg)

Remember, milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So, 1 one thousandth of the unit of measure gram
being 1 milligram, is simply written 1 mg

LARGER Measurement from a kilogram

1 tonne
(1 t)

There are exactly 1000 kg (kilograms)
in 1 t (spelled tonne)
