bush The correct answer here is be a gram is

00:21

a unit of mass mass is a measure of stuff

00:23

specifically how much stuff is in a particular object Sure

00:27

we could get fancy and call it matter but the

00:29

fact of the matter is matter is just mad stuff

00:33

Yeah Anyway mass and weight are related but wait depends

00:36

on gravity You're way less on the moon than you

00:38

do on earth Which is why one of our favorite

00:40

diet tricks is space travel but mass stays the same

00:44

regardless of gravity The amount of stuff and an astronaut

00:47

doesn't change just because he's on the move it'll only

00:49

change your binge eating space pizza or something like that

00:52

And because we're nice around these parts and i don't

00:55

want to leave you hanging here The units used to

00:58

measure the other answer choices Wait no it's like christmas

01:01

Came early right Well to measure length we'd use centimeters

01:04

or inches or something like that Volume is how much

01:07

space something takes up We'd use leaders gallons or how

01:11

many space pizza slices fit into our bellies to measure

01:13

that lot of volume there and density is really a

01:16

combination of volume and mass so we've used grams per

01:19

mil a leader or something similar in a measured density

01:23

It's important to get these things right We look at

01:25

the silly if we said it's three kilograms to granny

01:28

shmoop house instead of three kilometer but we're sure granny

01:31

shmoop would forgive us if we messed up We love 00:01:34.035 --> [endTime] you for it honey shmoop be my marguerite
