Objective To perform metric conversions.
Chapter 1 Section 1: The Metric System (The International System Of Units or SI System)
What is SI? SI stands for Syteme internationale d’Unites Used by scientists since 1960 to set a consistent worldwide standard.
SI Base Units QuantitySI Base UnitSymbol Length (l)meterm Mass (m)kilogramkg Temperature (T)KelvinK Time (t)seconds Amount of Substance (n) molemol
SI Prefixes PrefixSymbolValue kilo (k)k1000 hecto (h)h100 deka (da)da10 deci (d)d0.1 centi (c)c0.01 milli (m)m0.001

Figure out which of the following measurements is largest: a.) L b.) 5000 mL c.) kL d.) 50.0 cL Hint: Convert each answer to the same unit!
“What does the Metric System measure?” Length - meters, m Mass – grams, g Volume - liters, L Time - seconds, s Temperature - Celsius, ºC.
The Metric System A Common Language. The Metric System Developed by the French in the late 1700’s. Based on powers of ten for easier conversion.
Metric System Why do Scientist’s Use? So everyone uses same system Makes conversions easy Metric system uses SI units Important in business and in trades.
Metric Conversions. King Henry There are many ways to understand how to change metric measurements, but one of the most common methods is the King Henry.
The Metric System. Why do we use/have to learn about the Metric System? Almost all the countries in the world use metric system. Other countries companies.
