6. 6. mg kg g Metric Units cgMass refers to the amount of matter in an object.The base unit of mass in the metric system in the kilogramand is represented by kg.Standard: 1 kilogram is equal to the mass of the InternationalPrototype Kilogram (IPK), a platinum-iridium cylinder kept Kilogram Prototypeby the BIPM at Sèvres, France.Metric Units Click the image to1 Kilogram (km) = 1000 Grams (g) watch a short video about mass.1 Gram (g) = 1000 Milligrams (mg)Which is larger?

11. 11. Measuring Mass We will be using triple-beam balances to find the mass of various objects. The objects are placed on the scale and then you move the weights on the beams until you get the lines on the right-side of the scale to match up. Once you have balanced the scale, you add up the amounts on each beam to find the total mass. What would be the mass of the object measured in the picture? _______ + ______ + _______ = ________ g Top Image: http://www.southwestscales.com/Ohaus_Triple_Beam_750-SO.jpgBottom Image: http://www.regentsprep.org/Regents/biology/units/laboratory/graphics/triplebeambalance.jpg 4
