Q: What metric unit would you use to find an objects mass?

Write your answer...

Kilograms are the standard unit of mass in the metric system. Therefore, grams or milligrams can be used to get the mass of smaller objects.

The SI unit for mass is the kilogram (kg)

Triple-beam balances will find the mass of various objects!

A metric unit for measuring an objects mass is a gram and its multiples or submultiples such a decagram, centigram, milligram, hectogram, kilogram

Kilogram

The gram.

Grams.

Kilogram(s)

Pounds.

The currently official version of the metric system is called SI. The SI unit for mass is the kilogram. (In some older metric systems, the gram is the unit of mass.)

Not sure what you mean with "light build". The SI (metric) unit for mass is the kilogram. For small objects, smaller units such as grams and milligrams can be used; for larger objects, the ton (= 1000 kilograms) is also used.

I would use grams.

Mass is measured in kilograms. For larger objects, tonnes are sometimes used. 1 ton = 1000 kg.

The kilogram would be logical.

Mass can be measured in two ways. It can be measure in the unit of gram (g) specially for small objects and the unit of kilogram (kg) for larger objects.

mass is an inherent property of all objects and they have at all times. it is measured in units of kilograms (metric) or slugs (U.S.).weight is a derived property of objects having mass when they are in a gravitational field and not being allowed to fall. it is measured in units of newtons (metric) or pounds (U.S.).

use a scale to find the mass

The metric unit of mass is the kilogram. Why you would need to measure the mass of a necktie is beyond me.

The kilogram is the SI base unit of mass and is equal to the mass of the international prototype of the kilogram.In metric System there are many units to measure the mass of the objects like pounds, gm, lbs, kg,etc.

you would use gallons

In the SI - the current metric system - that would be the kilogram. In older metric systems, the gram has been used as the unit of mass.

A kilogram.

GRAMS

The concept of "mass" doesn't just apply to the metric system. The mass is often informally called the "amount of substance". This is not a very precise definition; to be more precise, you can think of mass as a property that provides objects with: a) Inertia. Objects with more mass are more difficult to speed up or slow down. b) Gravitational attraction. Objects with more mass also have more weight. (The weight also depends on the gravitational field - on Earth, a mass of 1 kg has a weight of about 9.8 newton.)
