Base Units What measures what Length/Distance meter
km hm dam m dm cm mm Weight/mass gram kg hg dag g dg cg mg Volume liter kL hL daL L dL cL mL

Metric To Metric Conversion
Step One: Line up the metric units from largest to smallest:    km hm dam m dm cm mm kl hl dal l dl cl ml kg hg dag g dg cg mg Step Two: Count the number of steps from the unit you have to the unit you want. Step Three: Move the decimal point the direction you moved to get from one unit to the other that many steps.

4.5 L = ml Step One: Line up the metric units from largest to smallest: kl hl dal l dl cl ml Step Two: Count the number of steps from the unit you have to the unit you want in your answer. To get from liters to milliliters on the chart, it takes three steps to the right. Step Three: Move the decimal point the same direction you moved. So the decimal point must be moved three steps to the right as well. 4.5 L = 4,500 ml

Metric to Metric Conversion
Practice problems a) 5 cm = _______mm b) 12.8 dg = ______mg c) 14,450 mm = _____m d) km = _______m e) 2000 ml = ________ L

Standard to Metric Conversion Formulas
Length inches x 2.54 = cm (centimeters) feet x = m (meters) miles x 1.6 = km (kilometers) Weight pounds  2.2 = kg (kilograms) ounces x 28 = g (grams) Volume gallons x 3.8 = L (liters) fluid ounces x 30 = ml (milliliters)

How many liters are in 2 gallons
Standard to Metric Conversion   How many liters are in 2 gallons of milk? gallons x 3.8 = L (liters) 2 gallons x 3.8 = 7.6 L Got milk??

YUMMMMMM! The worlds largest candy bar weighs 5,500 pounds.
How many kilograms? pounds  2.2 = kg (kilograms) 5,500 lbs  2.2 = 2,500 kg YUMMMMMM!

Just DO IT ! 3 feet to meters 12 inches to centimeters 1 ounce to grams 6 fluid ounces to milliliters 3 ft x = 0.9 m 12 in x 2.54 = 30.5 cm 1 oz x 28 = 28 grams 6 fl oz x 30 = 180 ml
