Question : the other question i asked wasn't good. sorry. if you can also give me what a gram, liter, and meter measures up to, i'll give you 10 points! i am SO confused
Answer : The metric system is all based on multiples of 10, so:
centi = 1/100
milli = 1/1000
kilo = 1000
So a centimeter = a meter divided by 100
a millimeter = a meter divided by 1000
a kilometer = a meter times 1000
A meter - a measure of length, a little longer than a yard (a yard is 3 feet)
A gram - a measure of weight, about 30 grams in an ounce (16 ounces in a pound)
A liter - a measure of volume, a little more than a quart
Look on a gallon of milk - it says 3.78 liters, which equals 4 quarts.
A kilogram, or 1000 grams, equals 2.2 pounds.
A kilometer, or 1000 meters, equals 0.6 miles.
Question : a).meter
Answer : None, it's the kilogram, kg.
'The kilogram (symbol: kg) is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units, which is the modern standard governing the metric system. The kilogram is defined as being equal to the mass of the International Prototype Kilogram, which is almost exactly equal to the mass of one liter of water.'
Question : Please explain how you got the answer, because I am clueless.
Answer : A liter is a cubic decimeter
There are 10 centimeters in a decimeter, therefore there are 10*10*10 = 1000 cubic centimeters in a liter
There are 1000 grams in a kilogram
So you have 2.97 kilograms per 1 liter. Using the conversion above that is:
2.97 * 1000 grams per 1 liter
2.97 * 1000 grams per 1 * 1000 cubic centimeters
To do the math:
2.97 * 1000 / 1000 = 2.97 grams per cubic centimeter
I hope this helped
