.

1. Unit symbols are lower case letters (unless named after a person; e.g. C, and Pa). An exception is the use of L for litres. The names of units are always in lower case letters, e.g. grams not Grams, with one exception being degrees Celsius. 2. A period should not follow the unit symbol. ( i.e., kg not kg.) 3. There is no difference between the unit symbol for singular and plural. (i.e., kg not kgs) 4. The symbol cc must not be used to replace mL or cm3. 5. Metre and litre are spelled with re (Meter refers to a measuring instrument and not a length.) 6. Kilometre should be pronounced the same way as in kilogram, kilolitre and kilowatt. The term kilo should not be used to refer to a kilogram nor should klick be used to refer to a kilometre. (kilo-metre not kil-aumetre) 7. The term mass should be used not weight when referring to metric masses. (i.e. The mass of the boy is 56 kg.) 8. A specific temperature and a temperature change both have units of degrees Celsius (oC). 9. Use the unit symbol in preference to words following a numerical value. (e.g. 10.0 g/mL not 10.0 grams per millilitre.). If the amount is written out, then words should be used (e.g., ten grams per millilitre). 10. For values less than one, use a zero in front of the decimal point; i.e., 0.0695 g not .0695 g. 11. Use a space (not a comma) to separate sets of three digits to the left and the right of the decimal point. The practice is optional where there are only four digits to the left or right of the decimal point. Use decimal fractions (0.5) rather than common fractions (1/2) when working with metric units.
