And then,
when you place this cube filled with water
on a scale
it has a
mass of exactly
1 kg (kilogram)

ALL SIMPLY RELATED in
10!

Length, Volume and Mass


DERIVED FROM THE LENGTH OF A METER!

Regardless of political or religious persuasion, ethnic or educational background, race, age,  sex or wherever you think we're from, decimal measurement works in harmony with life itself.

Creation... Evolution, 10 digit hands 10 digit toes. Right?

Do This Again...
Divide 1 meter by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)...
then make a cube (1000 cm
) of it to fill with water...
and you will find that it contains exactly
1 L (1 liter) (1000 mL
) of water... then on a scale
is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
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
