1 Metric Conversion Practice

2 Metric Conversions gmL Baseunit decicentimillidekahectokilo gmL Conversions in the metric system are merely a matter of moving a decimal point. The “base unit” means the you have a quantity (grams, meters, Liters, etc without a prefix.

3 Metric Conversions gmL Baseunit decicentimillidekahectokilo Example #1: Convert 18 liters to milliliters 18 L liters = milliliters

4 Metric Conversions gmL Baseunit decicentimillidekahectokilo Example #2: Convert 450 milligrams to grams mg 450 mg = g

5 Metric Conversions gmL Baseunit decicentimillidekahectokilo Example #3: Convert 20 kilograms to milligrams 20 kg kg = mg

6 Problem #1 Convert400 mL to Liters Convert 400 mL to Liters 400 mL = L mL L = 0.4 L = 4x10 -1 L

7 Problem #2 Convert10 meters to mm Convert 10 meters to mm 10 m = mm m mm = 1x10 4 mm

8 Problem #3 Convert73 grams to kg Convert 73 grams to kg 73 g = kg g kg = 7.3x10 -2 kg

9 Problem #4 Convert0.02 kilometers to m Convert 0.02 kilometers to m 0.02 km = m km m = 2x10 1 m

10 Problem #5 Convert20 centimeters to m Convert 20 centimeters to m 20 cm = m cm m = 2x10 -1 m

11 Problem #6 Convert450 milliliters to dL Convert 450 milliliters to dL 450 mL = dL mL dL

12 Problem #7 Convert10 kilograms to grams Convert 10 kilograms to grams 10 kg = g kg g = 1x10 4 g

13 Problem #8 Convert935 mg to cg Convert 935 mg to cg 935 mg = cg mg cg = 9.35x10 1 cg

14 Problem #9 Convert5.2 kg to mg Convert 5.2 kg to mg 5.2 kg = mg kg mg = mg = 5.2x10 6 mg

15 Problem #10 Convert175 mL to cm 3 Convert 175 mL to cm mL = cm 3 mL = 1.75x10 2 cm 3
