Conversion Tables and Methods to Use when converting

from Metric Units to Metric Units (Length)

 

Some terms to remember

 

 Meter – Length

 Kilo – Thousand

 Liter – Volume

 Milli – Thousand

 Gram – Mass/Weight

 Centi – Hundred

 Celsius – Temperature

 Deci – Ten

 

Measure of Lengths

 10 millimeters (mm) =

 1 centimeter (cm)

 10 centimeters =

 1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters

 100 centimeter =

 1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters

 1000 meters =

 1 kilometer (km)

 

 

 

Operations for Length

 

Example: To get Centimeters from Meters you multiply the Meters by 10

 

You Have: 23 Meters

 

You want Centimters: So, Centimeters = 23 Meters

We Multiply the meters by 100:

 

You want Centimters: So, Centimeters = 23 Meters

There are 2300 centimeters in 23 meters or 100 centimeters for every meter.

 

If you have this

 

Do this

 

To get this

 millimeters (mm)

 Divide by 10 (mm/10)

 centimeter (cm)

 centimeters (cm)

 Multiply by 10 (cm * 10)

 Millimeters (mm)

 Meters (m)

 Multiply by 100 (m * 100)

 Centimeters (cm)

 Centimeters (cm)

 Divide by 100 (cm/100)

 Meters (m)

 Millimeters (mm)

 Divide by 1000 (mm/1000)

 Meters (m)
