What are all SI units based on?
water. a gram is one milliliter of water. a milliliter is a cubic centimeter. in degrees Celsius 0 is freezing for water and 100 is boiling. a calorie is the energy it takes heat a milliliter/gram/cubic centimeter of water by 1 degree. so on and so on it is all based on water. Answer The units gram, litre, Celsius, and centimetre are not SI units. They are cgsA units which predates the SI system. The SI system is based on the mksA system,...

What is one advantage of the SI measurement system over other systems?
In the SI system, units are based on powers of ten, so it's easier to change from say centimeters to meters. Also the SI units are based on exact standards that don't change and can be measured and duplicated, regardless of where you are in the world. ...
What is the relationship between SI and CGS units of force?
SI is the Systeme Internalionale of measurement in which the Metre, kilogram and Second are some primary units. An older system based on metric units used centimetre, gram, and second as the primary units. Obviously these may be converted into SI units, but the CGS system is no longer used. [Some of the definitions of the fundamental units differ between these systems.] ...
