Metric conversion factorsFind right here on this page a concise list of metric conversion factors. Use them to convert from one unit to another Study the list carefully! Even though you may not be familiar with it, an understanding of it will make it easy to do conversion In the chart above, km means kilometer. k stands for kilo and m stands for meter hm means hectometer. h stands for hecto and m stands for meter. Ok you got the point! Length: 1000 meters(m) = 1 kilometer (km) 100 m = 1 hectometer (hm) 10 m = 1 decameter(dam) 100 centimeters(cm) = 1 m 10 decimeters(dm) = 1 m 1000 millimeters(mm)= 1 m 10 mm = 1 cm Volume: 1 cubic meter = 1000 dm^{3} 1 cubic meter = 1,000,000 cm^{3} 1 cubic meter = 1,000,000,000 mm^{3} 1000 cubic meters(m^{3}) = 1 cubic centimeter (cm ^{3} 100 cm^{3} = 1 cubic decimeter(dm^{3}) 1,000,000 cm^{3} = 1 cubic meter(m^{3}) Area 1 m^{2} = 100 dm^{2} 1 m^{2} = 10,000 cm^{2} 1 m^{2} = 1,000,000 mm^{2} 100 square millimeters (mm^{2})= 1 square centimeter (1 cm^{2}) 10,000 m^{2} = 1 hectare(ha) Capacity: 1000 liters(L) = 1 Kiloliter (kL) 1000 milliliters(mL) = 1 L Mass: 1 kilogram(kg) = 1000 grams(g) 1000 kilograms = 1 metric ton (t) 1000 milligrams (mg) = 1 g Time: 60 seconds(sec) = 1 minute(min) 60 min = 1 hour(hr) 24 hr = 1 day 365 days = 1 year Temperature Degrees Celsius(°C) 0°C = freezing point of water 37°C = normal body temperature 100°C = boiling point of water
