The standard size soft drink (aka soda, pop, whatever) > can size in Australia is 375 ml (millilitres) - aka 0.375 L. Actually, the soda that is sold in bottles is .5, 1, 2 or 3 liters. There are three exceptions- the 8 oz (about 235ml) glass, the 12 oz (about 355ml) bottle and the 20 oz (about 591 ml) bottle. Cans are 8 or 12 oz . >>Nutrition is in calories/grams/milligrams when the package is >>ounces/pounds/gallons. > > Calories are not SI units - the correct SI unit for measuring energy is > the > kilojoule (and that has important automotive implications since kilojoules > has a relationship to the kilowatt power output ratings of engines). The calorie is a metric unit, specifically it is the quantity of thermal energy required to raise one gram of water 1C at 15C. When dealing with nutritionial intake, that is the unit the USDA & the AMA uses, I believe that is what they use in Canada as well. I do not know why they use these measurments but they do. Checkout for US standards on well, er, nutrition. By the way, a moderately active, average male (US is 5 ' 10"/1.8 m 160 lbs/72 Kg) should take in about 2000 calories a day. >>At the doctors, you get medicine in measured in mg, weighed in pounds, >>height measured in inches/feet, and bodily fluids measured in ml/dl. >>For the cars tires are in inches, fuel in gallons and go miles per hour. >>All >>the belts, screws and other parts are in mm (on the "foreign" and >>"domestic" >>brands) > >> A side note- The Pontiac G6 is made in Australia and is domestic > > He he is that what the Holden Monaro is called in the US? I was corrected, it is the Pontiac GTO that is the Holden Monaro.
