Converting Metric Units
When converting metric units you need to know the key facts:
Length Mass Volume m = metre
10 mm = 1 cm 1000 g = 1 kg 1000 ml =1 litre km = kilometre
100 cm = 1 m 1000 kg = 1 ton 1 ml = 1 cm^3 kg = kilogram
1000 m = 1 km 1 m^3 = 1000 litres mm = millimetre
cm = centimetre
These facts will help you convert two sets of metric units.
To convert cm to mm you times cm by 10 and the answer will equal the mm.
When converting mm to cm you divide the mm by 10 and the answer will equal the cm.
