We will discuss about measuring mass. We know the vegetable seller is weighing potatoes in kilogram. The goldsmith is weighing a ring in grams. The wheat bags are weighing in quintals.

Some of the following weights are used like 10 kg, 5 kg, 2 kg, 1 kg, 500 g, 200 g, 100 g, 50 g etc.

The unit of weight is the gram. Kilogram is a bigger unit of weight.

1 kilogram is equal to 1000 grams
