Larger Measurement from a milligram

## 1 gram (1 g)

Remember, milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So there are exactly 1 000 milligrams
in the unit of measure gram
and 1 gram is simply written 1 g

Larger Measurement from a gram

### 1 kilogram (1 kg)

Remember, kilo is the prefix
meaning 1 000 times as much.
So, 1 000 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)

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 (1 000 cm
ณ) of it to fill with water
and you will find that it contains exactly 1 L (1 liter)
(1 000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly 1 kg (1 kilogram) (1 000 g)
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!

AND THAT

 1 cmณ (1 cubic centimeter) filled with water contains exactly 1 mL (1 milliliter) and is the mass  of exactly 1 g (1 gram)
