How much does our Earth weigh?

New units of measurement have been officially introduced into the International System of Units, in addition to the kilogram, millimeter, tera and others, namely the rune, kita, ronto and ciktu.

So, now we have ronnagrams and kettagrams, as well as ronnameters and kettameters, as well as rontograms, kettagrams and kettameters. The rune means: billion x billion x billion. As for Ronto, it means: a billion out of a billion out of a billion.

And the units of measurement were updated for the first time in 30 years, as delegates voted to approve the new system at the General Conference on Weights and Measures, held at the Palace of Versailles.

In 1991, the prefixes zetta and yotta were introduced into the International System of Units of Measurement. To understand the scale, a kilometer, for example, is equal to 1000 meters, or rather, one and three zeros. The yotamata scale consists of 24 zeros after one, while the ronnameter or ronnagram actually contains 27 zeros after one.

Scientists first measured the weight of the globe, and it turned out that our Earth weighs 6 rongrams, which means 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 grams.

The giant of the solar system, Jupiter, did not fit into the unit of measurement of the ronogram. Now he weighs 2 kilograms (two and 30 zeros on the right).

Why do we need new units of measurement? – to make it more convenient to measure giant quantities, for example, cosmic distances or data volumes (iotabytes). On the other hand, in quantum physics, for example, it is necessary to measure very small quantities, where new units will also be useful.

Scientists and staff hope that humanity will have a sufficient number of new set-top boxes for the next 20-25 years.
