One small point: there seems to be a misunderstanding that in the SI system g
is the base unit for mass, instead of kg. Also in a previous posting somebody
stated ("... but using kg instead of g").

This is not correct, strange as it may seem, the kilogram _is_ the fundamental
unit. Note that the SI system can also be referred to as the MKS system
