Note that weight actually refers to force exerted due to the acceleration of gravity and the mass of an object. It is commonplace to see the terms weight and mass used interchangeably, though.

The SI base unit of mass is the kilogram. The original metric system specified the gram as the base mass unit.

The SI base unit of force, which technically would be the correct unit of weight is the Newton (kg*m/s2). The dyne is another 'metric' unit of force (g*cm/s2).

There is no such unit of that weight in the metric system. The basic unit of weight is the gram, which is 0.035 of one ounce - 1/10 of what you ask about.


The basic metric unit for weight is the newton.


A basic unit of weight in the metric system is a Newton and that is not equivalent to 39.37 of any standard units in any standard system.


There is no basic unit of weight that is equivalent.The equivalent weight in the metric system, of a body with mass of 0.35 ounces, is 0.097 newtons.


In the metric system, 0.35 ounces is equal to 9.92233 grams. In kilograms, this would be equal to 0.00992233 kilograms. The kilogram is the basic unit of weight in the metric system.


A quart is a measure of volume, not weight. A liter would be the metric equivalent of a quart in terms of volume. If it's weight you're looking for, the basic unit of mass in the metric system is the gram.


basic unit of length mass and volume in the metric system are as follows . basic unit of length in the metric system is meter . basic unit of mass in the metric system is kg . basic unit of volume in the metric system is L.


The base unit of weight (mass) is the kilogram.


The basic unit of the metric system is the meter and liter.


The metre is the basic unit of length for the metric system


Liters is the basic unit for volume in the metric system.


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.


Basic unit of weight in the metric system equal to 0.35 ounces


The basic unit of weight in the metric system is the gram. There are approximately 28.35 grams per ounce, therefore 0.35 ounces is equal to about 9.9 grams.


The kilogram is the Base Unit (not 'basic' unit) in the SI system (not 'metric system') for mass.


Grams is the unit to measure weight in the metric system.



By unit of length and distance and conversion ,we can say that the basic unit of length in the metric system the meter.


The g stands for gram, the basic unit of mass in the metric system.


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.


The base unit of length in the metric system is the metre.


The SI, or metric, unit of weight is the same as the unit of force, namely the newton.
