The most important SI units that we should know for Chem 14 A would be mass(kg), length(m), and time(s). Also it would be great to understand how to convert from the SI units. For example, 1000g would equal 1 kg.

Also not that there are 1000 milimoles in a single mole. I saw this appear a few times throughout the homework. Try to remember the prefixes as it'll help a lot.

If you are talking about SI Fundamental Units it will be Mass(kg), length(m), and time(s) but there is also SI Derived Units which would be volume (m^3) and density.

The most important SI units to know would be time(s), length(m), and weight(kg). It is also useful to know how to convert between SI units and others.

There are charts in the back of the book that will help with memorizing important conversions. That is where you will find the most commonly used ones in problems.
