What are units of mass in the metric system?

Milligram and Gram.Answer 2Yes, the above but the gram is the basic unit and like all metric measurements has prefixes added to make the unit larger or smaller. So, a milligram is 1/1000th of a gram, a kilogram is 1000 grams, a decigram is 100th of a gram, a decagram is 100 grams, etc, etc.AnswerIt depends on what you mean by the 'metric system'. If you mean the 'SI system', then the base unit for mass is the kilogram. If, on the other hand, you are referring to one of the earlier metric systems, the cgsA system, then the base unit for mass is the gram.
