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 1°C at 15°C. 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 http://www.nutrition.gov 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.
