In the skeptical spirit of precise technology, Sheldrake turns the 10 primary dogmas of materialism into fascinating questions, and indicates how them all open up startling new probabilities for discovery.

Weight is not a fundamental quantity. Preview Questions ț What does the mega- as in megaton and megabyte mean? How about a gigabyte? ț Is a quart larger than a liter? are also standard units for a modernized version of the metric system, called the International System of Units (abbreviated SI, from the French Système International d’Unités). When more applicable, smaller units than those in the mks system may be used. Although the mks system is the standard system, the smaller cgs system is sometimes used, where cgs stands for centimeter, gram, and second.

In general, common metric units are larger than their British counterparts—for example, a meter is a little longer than a yard. Give two examples, as well as one notable exception. 3. In the original definition of the kilogram as a volume of water, it was specified that the water be at its maximum density, which occurs at 4°C (39°F).
6 Derived Units and Conversion Factors 17 Although it is commonly written in equation form, this is really an equivalence statement; that is, 1 in. 54 cm. ) However, in the process of expressing a quantity in different units, a conversion relationship in ratio or factor form is used: 1 in. 54 cm 1 in. , tall, and you want to express your height in centimeters. 0 in. 54 cm ϭ 165 cm 1 in. Note that the in. units cancel and the cm unit is left on both sides of the equation. In the initial example of converting units in the same system, 3 yards to feet, a conversion factor was actually used in the form: 3 yd ϫ 3 ft ϭ 9 ft 1 yd where 3 ft/1 yd, or 3 ft per yard.
