In metric, one millliter of water occupies one cubic centimeter, weighs one gram, and requires one calorie of energy to heat up by one degree centigrade - which is one percent of the difference between its freezing point and its boiling point. An amount of hydrogen weighting the same amount has exactly one mole of atoms in it. Whereas in the Imperial system, the answer to "How much energy does it take to boil a room-temperature gallon of water?" is "Are you joking me?" because you can't directly relate any of those quantities.

Great and useful video! Just to highlight - grams for Mass (instead of Weight)

Why does this video not explain the relationship between linear and volumetric measurement to weight. This is so simple and is the true beauty of the metric system.A cube of 10cm X 10cm X 10cm contains 1,000 cubic cm or 1 litre. 1 litre of water weighs 1 kg. Therefore a cube 1 metre X 1 metre X 1 metre Contains 1,000 litres - 1,000 litres of water weighs 1metric tonne.

Andrew Johnston - Also, One calorie is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius
