SI RELATES IN 10


The System of International Measurement called "SI"
is the metric measurement used in America.

An international system of measurement evolved that was assisted in it's development as a result of for-sighted American Fathers like Thomas Jefferson who gave us an American dollar with 100 cents and Dr Benjamin Franklin who, along with other devoted attendees of the Academy of Sciences in Paris, contributed significantly to the simple design of measuring in metric dimensions today.
This System of International Units called "SI"
is the metric measurement used in America.


Unlike "inch-pound" measurement, metric measurement is all simply related in 10... just like an American dollar.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS!

Simply divide 
1 m (meter)
in exactly 10 equal parts,
each of which measures
10 cm (centimeters).
Then make a cube container that is
10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm
(1000
cm)
that we can fill with water.

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