The International System of Units called "SI"
is the Metric Measurement used in America.

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

Use the Symbol  t

Whales can be the
mass of 1
t
(spelled 1 tonne)

Each railcar can carry about 42 t
(spelled 42 tonnes)

 A large ship can be as heavy as the mass of 100 000 t (spelled tonnes) when filled to capacity.
 Smaller Measurement from a  tonne
 1 kilogram (1 kg) A thousand grams (1 000 g) is the mass of 1 kg (1 kilogram). And 1 kilogram is simply written 1 kg which is pronounced "killo-gram" NOT "killau-gram". Smaller Measurement from a  kilogram 1 gram (1 g) Remember that kilo is the prefix meaning 1 000 times, which only says that there are 1 000 g (grams) in 1 kg (kilogram) and we simply write 1 g to represent the mass of 1 gram. Smaller Measurement from a gram 1 milligram     (1 mg) Remember, milli is the prefix meaning 1 one thousandth (0.001). So, 1 one thousandth from the unit of measurement gram being 1 milligram, is simply written 1 mg.
 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 cmณ) of it to fill with water and you will find that it contains exactly 1 L (1 litre) (1 000 mL) of water and is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1 000 g). ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!
