WHAT IS A KILOGRAM?

The Base Unit for MASS is
kilogram
Use the symbol kg

This 22 kilogram salmon
is about
1 meter
long

Remember, kilo is the prefix for 1000 times as much.
So, one thousand grams (1000 g) is simply written
1 kg (1 kilogram)

This package of ground meat
is about 1 kg (1 kilogram).

A new born baby can be about the mass of
3 kg...

and a six week old puppy can be
as heavy
as 1 kg.

A 5 kg roast can easily serve
over 10 or 12 people.

 A 10 kg turkey should
easily serve
about 20 happy appetites.

 

A 40 kg bag of concrete mix
requires a strong back
to carry.

 

Smaller Measurements from a kilogram

1 gram
(1 g)

Remember, kilo is the prefix
meaning 1000 times.
So, 1 000 g (grams) is the mass of
1 kg (kilogram).
Pronounced "KILL-oh-gram"
NOT "kill-AH-gram".

Smaller Measurements from a gram

1 milligram
(1 mg)

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

LARGER Measurement from a kilogram

(1 tonne)
(1 t)

There are exactly 1000 kg (kilograms)
in 1 t (spelled tonne)

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 liter) (1000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
