Bit of a self explanatory one here, but I thought of some things to say:

kilogram (kg)- the metric way of measuring weight; a standard bag of sugar is 1kg

metre (m)- the metric measure for distance; about one stride

metre/second
(m/s)- this is a measure of speed; it is how many meters you go in a second

metre/second2
(m/s2)- this is a measure of acceleration, which is how quickly speed changes

newton (N)- a newton is a measure of force

second (s)- a second is how long it takes to say Mississippi (not scientific definition!)

newton per kilogram (N/kg)- how much force for every kilogram of weight

I thought that m/s squared was a measure of acceleration not velocity.

ReplyDeletem/s2 is the unit for acceleration, not velocity :)

DeleteThanks guys, sorted it :)

DeleteWhat is Kilogram Meter / Second ??

ReplyDeleteKg m/s ??

I think you might mean kg -m/s squared which is a newton (a measure of force). I hope that helps

Deletei thought that kg was a measure of mass? weight is measure in N because its a force i think :)

ReplyDeletekg is mass, but 'kg -m/s' the same thing as a newton (N) which is a measurement of force and weight :)

DeleteWhat does Nm (newton metre) measure?
