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 (1000 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 1000 times,
which only says that there are
1000 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 cm
ณ) of it to fill with water
and you will find that it contains exactly 1 L (1 litre)
(1000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!
