Those little grams can sure
go a long way.
The mass of 1 g (gram)
is
a unit of measure
that you can hardly feel on the end of your finger.
DID
YOU KNOW?
( Video)
that you can divide
1 meter
by exactly
10 equal parts
(10 x 10 x 10 cm)
now make
a cube
(1 000 cm³) 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).
