Fact, CM's are not used by 99% of jobs, yet it is one of four measurements used in metric system schools.

Also, Tons are in fact also used to measure mass. Newtons are ACTUALLY used to measure weight. (mass under the influence of gravity)

Drop the direction and you have the same thing as speed.

EDIT: Actually, the measurement is exactly the same. Grade 8 math lies.
For velocity and speed, true. But for weight and mass... Weight=mass times gravity. If the gravity is not Earths 9.8, than weight is different than mass. Weight is also a force pushing downward, but mass can be used in all sorts of other equations, like F=ma. The force is not equal to weight times acceleration. Weight is a force with units kg times meters per second squared, and mass is just kg.

Weight is measured in newtons. And "weight" in everyday conversation (which was what fourwind was using) isn't the mass times the gravity field, it's just the mass. (Because nobody cares how much force you're exerting on the ground)

Unless you're talking about the normal force, so you can multiply it by the coefficient of friction to get the force of friction, but that's another topic altogether.

I was using "weight" and "mass" in there true definition, not everyday conversation language. But hey, if you were talking about it like that, whatever. I'm fine with dropping the subject.

BTW, newtons ARE kg times meters per second squared.

Exactly, so Kg's aren't weight, newtons are. newtons are the actual name for forces of any kind, and I therefor question you as to what year of school you are in?

Thank you. I was afraid no one else agreed with me. And I'm a junior in high school (11th grade).

McDonald's Salads can have up to 60% more fat than their burgers.

It's not the salad that's fat, you can eat that all you want! It's the sauce they put on the salad that's bad for you.

World War I started because of a sandwich. Basically, a group of assassins attempted to kill Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria, with a hand grenade while he was driving through on a parade. However, the grenade went off late and missed the Archduke. After two failed suicide attempts, the lead assassin decided to go get a bite to eat at a local deli. While he was eating his sandwich, Franz drove by on his way to visit a hospital to see those injured in the grenade attack. After a few moments of shock at his luck, the assassin took out his pistol, shot Franz, and changed history.
