## Which of the following is the metric unit for time?

the second

The metric unit for time is the second. We know a second as 1/60th of a minute, but minutes aren’t used in the metric system.

**What are the 4 metric units of time?**

The base unit for time is the second (the other SI units are: metre for length, kilogram for mass, ampere for electric current, kelvin for temperature, candela for luminous intensity, and mole for the amount of substance).

**What are the 3 basic units of the metric system?**

The three most common base units in the metric system are the meter, gram, and liter. The meter is a unit of length equal to 3.28 feet; the gram is a unit of mass equal to approximately 0.0022 pounds (about the mass of a paper clip); and the liter is a unit of volume equal to 1.05 quarts.

### Is minutes a metric unit?

Metric time is the measure of time intervals using the metric system. Other units of time: minute, hour, and day, are accepted for use with SI, but are not part of it.

### What are 5 standard metric units?

So, the units for length, weight (mass) and capacity(volume) in the metric system are: Length: Millimeter (mm), Decimeter (dm), Centimeter (cm), Meter (m), and Kilometer (km) are used to measure how long or wide or tall an object is.

**What is smallest unit of time?**

zeptoseconds

Scientists have measured the shortest unit of time ever: the time it takes a light particle to cross a hydrogen molecule. That time, for the record, is 247 zeptoseconds. A zeptosecond is a trillionth of a billionth of a second, or a decimal point followed by 20 zeroes and a 1.

**What is the biggest unit of time?**

supereon

The largest unit is the supereon, composed of eons. Eons are divided into eras, which are in turn divided into periods, epochs and ages.

## What is SI unit of weight?

The SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). Thus, the SI unit of the quantity weight defined in this way (force) is the newton (N).
