Where the gold, silver or precious stones are, there we use carates. Carate is used to measure weight and standard of precious stones and metals.
The higher the standard is - the more carates are in the stone. This is the way the price and worth are measured. Everything has its dimensions.
When selecting staff for your project, you can do as the jeweller does. The rich are ready to pay for pure gold, aren't they. So why not to pay an adequate price for really a good professional?
It is one of the basic dimensions of mass. In shops and at markets goods are usually measured in grams. The ones that require more accurate measurement, are usually measured in milligrams. Such dosage can not be carried out in a "by sight" manner, especially when preparing medicines or any othe chemical mixtures.
What is hevier - a kilo of
wool or a kilo of iron? The trick is old as Adam, and yet it
can make some people think hard over the question.
Kilogram is rather a wide-spread measurement, but as in the case of length and volume it is not used in some countries. They use pounds instead. One pound is somewhat lesser than a kilo. A pound itself, in turn, is equal to 16 ounces. Ounces are something like milligrams in Anglo-Saxon systems of values. Nevertheless, unlike pound, kilogram has its own international prototype kilogram.
Time to speak about heavyweights. Ton is a measurement, proper for really heavy goods. Or peole. It is 1000 kilos. Although a ton (as well as the other before-listed values) is a value not only of weight, but also of explosions yield (megatons).
It is known that the most
most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated, was a Tsar Bomba
(Blast yield= 58 megatons). It was enough for the seismick shock
to be measurable even on its third passage around the Earth.
