 meter - LENGTH


Convenient prefix attached in front of
base or derived unit, or unit of measure
shows quantity, size or value
by 10, 100 and 1000.

## WRITING IS EASY. Symbols like mL or mg or mm or kg or cm together identify prefix and base or derived unit or unit of measure. Is that academic or what? BUT For most everyday experience useful prefixes are milli 1 one thousandth (0.001) from the unit of measure.  centi 1 one hundredth (0.01) from the unit of measure.  kilo 1000 times as much as the unit of measure.

DID YOU KNOW? ( 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
ณ) of it to fill with water...
and you will find that it contains exactly 1 L (1 litre)
(1000 mL
) of water...
and is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!
