Mass: Base unit = gram Paperclip = 1 gram Puppy = 1 kg 100 pounds= 45.3592 kg

Length: Base unit = meter Baseball bat = 1 meter Distance from the floor to a doorknob= 1 meter Width of a paper clip = 1 cm The thickness of a dime = 1mm 1 km= 0.6 miles

Volume: Base unit = liter 1 liter 2 liter 1 liter = 1000 ml
