LEARN THE METRIC SYSTEM EASILY WITH
 
Metric Man
and "The Metricettes" music video.

The International System of Units is called "SI"
and is the Metric Measurement used in America.
SI RELATES IN 10

Simply divide the Length of
1
m (meter)
in exactly 10 equal parts,
each of which measures
10
cm (centimeters).
Make a cube container
with it that is
10
cm x 10 cm x 10 cm
(1000
cm³)
and fill with water.

(Technically, it is supposed to be distilled water at sea level)

  And like magic, when you fill
this cube container
with water,
it has the
volume
of exactly 1 L (liter).



ALL SIMPLY RELATED
IN
10.

   Then, when you place this
(1000
cm³) cube filled
with water
on a scale it has the
Mass of exactly
1 kg (kilogram)

How about that?
length, volume and mass
all simply related
in 10.
Both spellings,
meter and metre,
as well as liter and litre are acceptable.

It's just a lot easier
to use symbols



ENJOY THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
Length of 1 m (
meter), Volume of 1 L (liter)
and Mass of 1 kg (kilogram).

DID YOU KNOW?
(Learning Video)
that you can divide 1 meter by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)
then make a cube (1000 cm
³) of it to fill with water
and you will find that it contains exactly
1 L (1 liter) (1000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!
