You would measure a paperclip in grams.
It would be weighed in kilograms. Used in context here: http://www.mojoprint.jp/paper-samples.php
paper clips do not weigh much, perhaps a gram each, so 10 weigh about 10 grams, so you would use grams, not kilograms, since 1 kg = 1000 grams
how do you figure out on paper that 16 ounces equal 453.6 grams
You will use grams to measure a paper cilp, as kilograms are too big. Ideally, you would use neither measurement. The milligram would be the best way of measuring the mass of paperclip.
Mass is measured in grams and kilograms. A gram is very light, about as light as a paperclip. A kilogram is 2.2 lbs, so it is more useful for everyday objects. Things such as people, furniture, cars, etc. could be measured in kilograms while objects like paper, small amounts of gold, or mail could be measured in grams. 1 kilogram is equal to 1000 grams.
Grams. As a comparison: milligrams can measure individual paper clips, while kilograms can measure textbooks.
If you're unfamiliar with the units, try and converting it to something you know. Through repetition, you will be able to associate a certain quantity with certain objects and their weights. 50 grams is less than a pound, while 50 kilograms is over 100 lbs. The obvious answer would be the 50 grams.
Approximately 5 grams. Most 'standard' A4 paper is 80gsm - which means 80 grams per square metre, There are approximately 16 A4 sheets to a square metre.... 80 divided by 16 equals five.
