A common unit of measure for an object's mass is the metric unit grams. However, mass is often confused with weight, which are similar ideas but different characteristics of an object. Where the standard unit of measure in pounds will give an object's weight, determining its mass relies on gram measurements.
The unit of mass is the kilogram (kg), but commonly, when we measure something in kilograms, we are measuring the force of gravity on that mass, which should be measured in newtons (N), (a measure ...

SI Units - Mass Share. Facebook Google Plus Twitter . Image info. The ... The mass of a body is a measure of its inertial property or how much matter it contains. The weight of a body is a measure of the force exerted on it by gravity or the force needed to support it.
The standard unit of measurement for mass is a gram, as designated by the International System of Units (SI). While many industries continue to measure mass in ounces, pounds and tons in the United States, metric measurements are used in science, medicine and technical fields.
A paper clip has a mass of about 1 gram. A 1 liter bottle of water has a mass of 1 kilogram (plus a little bit extra for the plastic). U.S. Customary Units The system for measuring weight (not mass) in the customary system is based on ounce, pound, and ton. The basic unit of weight is a pound(lb).
Mass is a property of physical objects that, roughly speaking, measures the amount of matter they contain. It is a central concept of classical mechanics and related subjects. Strictly speaking, there are three different quantities called mass: Inertial mass is a measure of an object's inertia...
