Converting between metric weight units

Converting metric weights How many mg to 1 g? How many g to 1 kg? How many kg to 1 t? 1000 mg = 1 g 1000 g = 1 kg 1 kg = 1 t How do you convert between them? Make your own notes…

How do you convert from smaller to larger unit of weight? 1 mg / g / kg = 0.001 g / kg / t 10 mg / g / kg = 0.01 g / kg / t 100 mg / g / kg = 0.1 g / kg / t 1000 mg / g / kg = 1 g / kg / t How do you convert between them? Make your own notes…

How much do I weigh? I weigh 75 kg, which is how many tonnes, grams and milligrams? The answers are… 0.075 t 75,000 g 75,000,000 mg

Now it’s your turn Choose a random item, make up the weight and do the same thing, converting between metric units as practice…
