It is published in Journal Citation Reports (JCR). This metric is published on an annual basis and can be often found on the websites of the journals. 1 liter = 1, milliliters. Note: One milliliter is equal to 1 cubic centimeter (cc). Units of mass: Technically speaking, the metric system measures not weight but is the measurement of how strongly gravity pulls an object toward , however, is the measurement of the amount of matter an object you traveled to the moon, your weight would change, so you would feel.

        You aced the chemistry units and conversions quiz!. Relaximages / Getty Images Great work! You did well on the units and conversions quiz. If you have trouble with any specific types of problems, try looking at a worked example problem to review the concepts and see how to proceed. Remember to check your work to make sure an answer makes sense. To study whether local measurement using a small contact area is representative of a cardiomyocyte monolayer, contractile stress measurements were obtained from geometrically distant cells (minimum 2 mm between measured cells), with the results shown in Fig. 2C. Using an indentation depth of 10 nm, the measured contractile stress ranged from 8.
