Thanks for the feedback!
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.
A hectare is a unit of area equal to 10,000 square metres (107,639 sq ft)
A microgram or nanogram. Although you could always use a kilogram and scientific notation!
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.)
Generally speaking milligrams.
Is the mass of an object different if it is measured in us units and metric units is it true or false?
The units of measurement make no difference to the properties of an object. A line that is 2.54 centimetres long or 1 inch long remains exactly the same length - whether you …choose to call its length 1 inch or 2.54 centimetres is totally irrelevant.
The mass doesn't change; just the numbers.
Mass is measured in kilograms. 1 kg is 1000g, 1 000 000 mg, 1 000 000 000 μm.
The SI unit for mass is the kilogram (kg)
The mass would not change, only the numbers describing the amount of mass would change.
Mass is measured in grams.
No, the mass is the same. Only the numbers are different.
The mass of an object is a constant. The units you use to measure it will not change that mass. The numbers will be different, but they would convert directly between the tw…o units.
