If you
need to
mass,
place
masses on
the right
side.
Move the sliding masses until the needle lines up. Be sure
to look at it straight on.
What would this mass be?
A gram (g) is a unit of mass equal to
There are 1000g in a kilogram.
That’s a lot of
paper clips!!!
A kilogram (kg) is used to measure
larger masses. A kilogram is a unit
of mass equal to 1,000 g, which is
about the mass of a cantaloupe.
Volume
• Measures in milliliters
• 1000 milliliters is 1 Liter
• Always read at eye level.
