Measurement International System Units (SI) • Mass: kilograms • Length: meters • Time: seconds • Volume: liters • Temperature: Kelvin or °Celsius
SI Units meters liters kilograms °Celsius seconds
Mass vs. Weight??? BUT. . . Mass is the measurement of the amount of matter in a given amount of a substance. Weight is the measure of the pull of gravity on a given mass.
In other words. . . The weight of an object on earth is greater than the weight of the same object on the moon, since the Earth has more gravity than the moon. The mass of the object (the amount of stuff) is the same on the earth as it is on the moon.
Mass is the amount of stuff. Weight is the affect of gravity (measured by a scale) on a given mass.
However. . . On Earth, the mass in grams equals the weight in grams. So for values ON EARTH we often use the terms weight and mass interchangeably. Just be careful, because where gravity values are different from on Earth (the moon, in space, another planet, etc.) the mass will be the same as on Earth but the weight will be different!
Metric Units . . . MASS 1000 grams equal 1 kilogram
Metric Units . . . VOLUME 1000 milliliters equal 1 liter
Metric Units . . . TEMPERATURE Kelvins or °Celsius
Metric Units . . . LENGTH 1000 millimeters = 1 meter 100 centimeters = 1 meter
Metric Units . . . TIME 60 seconds = 1 hour
