Metric conversion factors 

Find right here on this page a concise list in metric conversion factors.





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 dm3

1 cubic meter = 1,000,000 cm3

1 cubic meter = 1,000,000,000 mm3

1000 cubic meters(m3) = 1 cubic centimeter (cm 3

100 cm3 = 1 cubic decimeter(dm3)

1,000,000 cm3 = 1 cubic meter(m3)


Area

1 m2 = 100 dm2

1 m2 = 10,000 cm2

1 m2 = 1,000,000 mm2

100 square millimeters (mm2)= 1 square centimeter (1 cm2)

10,000 m2 = 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
