LEARNING SKILLS
FOR EVERYDAY USE IN AMERICA

Choose From the Following Subjects

The mass of 1 g (gram) is a unit of measure
that you can hardly feel on the end
of your finger.


about as heavy
as a raisin...



a paper clip...

 

   or a dime.

A table-tennis (ping-pong) ball
is the mass of about 5 g

A golf ball is about 50 g

and so is a
          medium sized egg.

 

Smaller Measurement 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 gram

1 kilogram
(1 kg)

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

Larger Measurement from a kilogram

1 tonne
(1 t)

There are exactly 1 000 kg (kilograms)
in 1 t (spelled tonne)
