Problem Set 1-8b More work with the Metric System

Question 1 a. meter: SI base unit of length, m b. gram: metric base unit-mass, g c. liter: metric base unit of volume, l (lower case) d. second: SI base unit of time, s e. kilogram: SI base unit of mass, kg

Question 2 a. kilo: 1000, k b. hecto: 100, h c. deca (deka): 10, da d. deci: 1/10, d e. centi: 1/100, c f. milli: 1/1000, m

Problem 3 a. 1 km = 10 hm b. 1 km = 100 dam c. 1 km = 1000 g d. 1 m = 10 dm e. 1 m = 100 cm f. 1 m = 1000 mm

Problem 4 a. 1200m x 1km/1000m = 1.2km b. 0.055cm x 1m/100cm = 0.00055m c. 10dag x 10g/1dag x 10dg/g= 1000dg d. 22mg x 1g/1000mg x 100cg/1g = 2.2cg e. 37.5cg x 1g/100cg = 0.375 g

Problem 5 a. 25 km/h x 1000m/1km x 1h/3600s = 6.94 m/s b. 75 km/h x 1000m/1km x 1h/3600s = 20.8 m/s c. 3.5 m/s x 1km/1000m x 3600s/1h = 12.6 km/h d. 10 m/s x 1km/1000m x 3600s/1h = 36 km/h
