There are exactly 1000 kg (kilograms) in 1 metric tonne

### Each railcar can carry about 42 t (spelled 42 tonnes)

 A large ship can be as heavy as the mass of 100 000 t (spelled tonnes) when filled to capacity.
 Smaller Measurement from a  tonne

### A thousand grams (1000 g) is the mass of 1 kg (1 kilogram). And 1 kilogram is simply written 1 kg which is pronounced "killo-gram" NOT "killau-gram".

Smaller Measurement from a  kilogram

### Remember that kilo is the prefix meaning 1000 times, which only says that there are 1000 g (grams) in 1 kg (kilogram) and we simply write 1 g to represent the mass of 1 gram.

Smaller Measurement from a gram

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