SI Units
• International System of Units
• Helps to maintain consistency in reporting measurements

Mass

Length

Volume

Mass
• Mass is measured in grams (g)
• The standard unit of mass in the metric system is the gram.
• Other units of mass and their equivalents in grams are as follows:

1000 milligrams (mg) = 1 g

100 centigrams (cg) = 1 g

10 decigrams (dg) = 1 g

1 hectogram (hg) = 100 g

1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 g

Volume
• Volume is measured in liters (L)
• The standard unit of volume in the metric system is the liter
• Other units of volume and their equivalents in liters are as follows:

1000 milliliters (mL) = 1 L

100 centiliters (cL) = 1 L

10 deciliters (dL) = 1 L

1 hectoliter (hL) = 100 L

1 kiloliter (kL) = 1000 L

### Volume can also be measured in cubic centimeters

1 cm³ = 1 mL

Length
• Length is measured in meters (m)
• The standard unit of length in the metric system is the meter
• Other units of length and their equivalents in meters are as follows:

1000 millimeters (mm) = 1 m

100 centimeters (cm) = 1 m

10 decimeters (dm) = 1 m

1 hectometer (hm) = 100 m

1 kilometer (km) = 1000 m
