**Through dimensional analysis.**

Metric Conversions! Through dimensional analysis.

2
**The Metric System Uses SI units (Système International d’Unités)**

Universal standard of measurement used in science, and most of the rest of the world Based on factors of 10

**? ENGLISH SYSTEM Ounces, Pounds and Pints 8 ounces make a cup,**

2 cups make a pint, 2 pints make a quart, 4 quarts make a gallon. A pint of water weighs a pound. An American barrel of dry measure is 105 dry quarts (116 liters), but a liquid barrel is 31.5 gallons (liquid) or 119 liters, unless the barrel contains petroleum, in which case it contains 42 (US) gallons or 159 liters. The three different ounces: a fluid ounce is ml a troy ounce is 31.1 g an ounce avoirdupois is g There's also something called "dry measure" with units of pint, quart, peck and bushel for measuring quantities of fruits, grains, and whatnot. 1 pint dry is l, while 1 pint liquid is l. Inches, Rods, Chains and Furlongs An inch is the outer part of a man's thumb, 25.4 millimeter to be exact. 12 inches to a foot, 2 feet to a cubit or 3 feet to a yard. A rod/pole is 5.5 yards (16.5 feet): The size of a big stick carried around by builders (hence the name). Four rods make a chain (22 yards) - the distance between two (cricket) wickets. Ten chains make a furlong. A furlong square is ten acres. Eight furlongs make a mile. ?

**Choose the correct measurement for the job. **

Number Economy Choose the correct measurement for the job. Instead of saying an object traveled 5,000 meters you can reduce that to 5 kilometers 1 kilometer = 1000 meters

5
**Decimal equivalent in SI writing style**

**Measuring Instruments**

Time Temperature Distance Mass Volume Second (s) Celcius (oC), Kelvin (K) Meter (m) Gram (g) Liter (L), cm3

**Write These Down! (Take NOTE of the CASE)**

Conversion Factors Conversion factor Base units Prefix 109 (L,m,g,s) = 1 giga (G) (L,m,g,s) = mega (M) 103 (L,m,g,s) = 1 kilo (k) 102 (L,m,g,s) = 1 hecto (h) 101 (L,m,g,s) = 1 deca (da) Base units (L, m, g, s) 1 (L,m,g,s) = deci (d) 1 (L,m,g,s) = centi (c) 1 (L,m,g,s) = milli (m) 1 (L,m,g,s) = micro (μ) 1 (L,m,g,s) = nano (n) 1 (L,m,g,s) = pico (p) Large units NEED TO MEMORIZE Base units Conversion factor Prefix Small units Write These Down! (Take NOTE of the CASE)

**CONVERSION STEPS STEP 1: Draw your table**

Problem: convert 2.43 meters (m) into millimeters (mm) STEP 1: Draw your table STEP 2: Put given number and unit over 1 2.43 m NO NAKED NUMBERS!!! EVERY NUMBER NEEDS A UNIT!!! NO UNIT = WRONG ANSWER!!! 1

9
**THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND MISSED STEP**

STEP 3: Put given unit downstairs to cancel 2.43 m m 1 m STEP 4: Put the unit you are looking for on top 2.43 m mm 1 m STEP 5: Put a 1 in front of larger unit: consult your chart! THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND MISSED STEP 2.43 m mm 1 1 m

10
**2.43 E3 mm STEP 8: Reduce and double check your unit**

STEP 6: LOOK UP THE PREFIX FOR CONVERSION FACTOR 103 2.43 m mm milli = 1000 or 103 1 1 m STEP 7: MULTIPLY ACROSS, NOT CROSS MULTIPLY 103 2.43 m mm 2.43 E3 mm = 1 1 1 m STEP 8: Reduce and double check your unit 2.43 E3 2.43 E3 mm = 1

**Step 3 Step 4 Step 2 Step 1 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 5.61 E-1 kL**

Problem: Convert 561 liters (L) into kiloliters (kL) 561 L 1 kL 561 kL 5.61 E-1 kL kilo = 1000 or 103 = 1 103 L 103 Step 3 Step 4 Step 2 Step 1 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8

**Step 3 Step 2 Step 4 Step 1 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 4.39 E13 ns 1**

Problem: Convert 4.39 E4 seconds (s) into nanoseconds (ns) 4.39 E4 s 109 ns 4.39 E13 ns 4.39 E13 ns nano = 109 = 1 1 s 1 Step 3 Step 2 Step 4 Step 1 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8

15
**2 Stage Problems You have to convert to the base unit first**

How do you know? Problem has 2 prefixes and no base unit alone Example: km to cm, Mg to mg, mL to GL (L, m, g, s) Convert to m first Convert to g first Convert to L first

16
**2.55 km to cm 2.55 km 103 m 102 cm = 1 1 km 1 m 2.55 x 103 x 102 cm =**

17
**1.63 E3 cg to Mg 1.63E3 cg 1 g 1 Mg = 1 102 cg 106 g 1.63E3 Mg =**

1.63 x 10-5 Mg 1 x 102 x 106
