DID YOU KNOW?
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 liter)
(1000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly
1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!

Learn Basic Metric
in Less Than 5 Minutes!

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

FIRST YOU TAKE 10 of whatever you have handy...

Count 'em.
10 digit hands...

 

10!

And 10 digit feet.
Right?

It's all simply related in 10.

Convenient prefix attached in front of
base or derived unit, or unit of measure 
shows quantity, size or value
by 10, 100 and 1000.

WRITING IS EASY!
Symbols
like mL or mg or mm or kg or cm
together
identify prefix and base or derived unit,
or unit of measure
.
But for most everyday experience
useful prefixes are
milli 1 one thousandth (0.001)
from the everyday unit of measure
•
centi 1 one hundredth (0.01)
from the everyday unit of measure
•
kilo 1000 times as much as
the of the everyday unit of measure.

SI (The International System)
SI RELATES IN 10

Simply divide 1 m (meter)
in exactly 10 parts,
each of which measures
10 cm (centimeters).

Then make a cube
container
that is
10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm
(1000
cmณ)
that we can fill with water.

And like magic, when you fill this cube container with water, it has the
volume of exactly
1 L (liter).

ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10.

But then, when you place
this cube filled with water
on a scale
it has a
mass of exactly
1 kg (kilogram).
                                   
How about that?
Length, Volume and Mass
all simply related in 10.

  
Both spellings, meter and metre, as well as liter
and litre
are acceptable.
It is just a lot easier
to use
symbols

ENJOY THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
Length of 1 m (meter), Volume of 1 L (liter)
and Mass of 1 kg (kilogram).
