The Metric System

 

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

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).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!
