Conversion Tables and Methods to Use when converting

from Metric Units to Metric Units (Volume)

 

Some terms to remember

 Meter – Length

 Kilo – Thousand

 Liter – Volume

 Milli – Thousand

 Gram – Mass/Weight

 Centi – Hundred

 

Celsius – Temperature

 

Deci – Ten

 

Measure of Volumes

 10 milliliters (ml) =

 1 centiliter (cl)

 10 centiliters =

 1 deciliter (dl) = 100 milliliters

1 liter =

 1000 milliliters

 1 milliliter =

 1 cubic centimeter

1 liter =

 1000 cubic centimeters

 100 centiliter =

 1 liter (L) = 1,000 milliliters

 1000 liters =

 1 kiloliter (km)

 

Operations for Volume

 

Example: To get Milliliters from Liters you Multiply the Liters by 1000

 

You Have: 2 Liters

 

You want Cubic Centimeters: So, Cubic Centimeters = 23 Liters

We Multiply the liters by 100:

 

You want Cubic Centimeters: So, Cubic Centimeters = 23 Liters There are 2000 milliliters and 2000 Cucbic Centimeters (CCs) in 2 liters

 

If you have this

 

Do this

 

To get this

 

milliliters (ml) or CCs

 

Divide by 10 (ml/10)

 

centiliter (cl)

 

centiliters (cl)

 

Multiply by 10 (cl * 10)

 

Milliliters (ml)

 

Liters (L)

 

Multiply by 1000 (L * 100)

 

Milliliters (mL) or CCs

 

Liters (L)

 

Multiply by 100 (L * 100)

 

Centiliters (cl)

 

Centiliters (cl)

 

Divide by 100 (cl/100)

 

Liters (L)

 

Milliliters (ml) or CCs

 

Divide by 1000 (ml/1000)

 

Liters (L)
