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

gram (g)

Use the Symbol g

A unit of measure that is 1 one thousandths 
from the Base Unit kilogram (0.001 kg) because there are
exactly 1000 g (grams) in 1 kg (kilogram).


NOTE:
Originally convention had it that the gram was
to be the base unit for MASS
but familiarity and convenience seemed to determine
that the kilogram be the Base Unit for MASS.
Because it is all Simply Related in 10.

The mass of 1 g (gram) is a unit of mass
that you can hardly feel on the end of your finger.


about as heavy
as a raisin...



a paper clip...

  

   or a dime.

A table-tennis (ping-pong) ball is the mass of
about 5 g.

A golf ball is about 50 g...
and so is a
medium sized egg.

The quantity of meat in a medium sized
hamburger paddy
is about
100 grams (100 g)

What's more?
2 scoops of ice cream are the
mass of about 100 grams.


(Singular or plural the Symbol is g)

A handful of nuts is the
mass of about 100 grams.

(Singular or plural the Symbol is g)

A medium sized
apple or tomato
is about 100 grams.

Smaller Measurement 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 gram

1 kilogram
(1 kg)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1000 times.
So, 1000 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)
in 1 t (spelled tonne)
