Grams is the unit to measure weight in the metric system.
There is no SI unit for weight, the SI unit for mass is kilogram. The SI unit for weight is the newton.
The SI, or metric, unit of weight is the same as the unit of force, namely the newton.
The appropriate unit for weight is Newtons.
The metric unit I would use to measure the mass of a light bulb is the gram.
Newton. (If you expected 'Kilogram", that's the metric unit of mass, not weight.)
The SI unit for measuring weight is a Newton.
Weight is a measure of the force exerted on a body by gravity. It can be measured in any recognized unit, either metric or old fashioned.
It is a newton.
The metric unit for measuring human weight is actually the Newton (N). Newton's are a measure of force and weight is the product of the acceleration of gravity and an objects mass. The metric unit for measuring human mass is the kilogram (kg).
You would use the gram to measure the weight of a grasshopper
metric = grams = kilograms, plonker!
The basic unit of length in the metric system is the meter. Grams are used to measure weight and liter is used to measure liquid capacity.
The base unit for weight measure in the metric system is "g" or grams.AnswerThere is no Base Unit for weight in the SI system. Weight is measured in newtons, which is a Derived Unit, not a Base Unit.
