Convert one metric measure to another metric measure?
This is the way i convert . K H D B D C M K=Kilo(meters) H=Hecto(meters) D=Deci(meters) B=Basic Unit(Meters in this case) D=Decka(meters) C=Centi(meters) M=Milli(meters) I remember this order by saying "King Henry Died By Drinking Chocolate Milk." So know lets convert. If you wanted to convert meters into millimeters(B to M) then you would see it is 3 letters to the right.(K H D B D C M)So all you do is take your Measurement in meters(lets say 23.447m) all you would do is move the decimal 3 places to the right. (So now it would be 23.447) But if you wanted to convert meters to kilometers, then you know K is three places to the left of B. So all you do is move your decimal 3 places to the right.(0.023447 Would be meters converted into kilometers.

It already is The watt is a metric unit. It is equal to one joule per second. The joule is equal to a newton-meter. And a newton is equal to a kilogram-meter per …second squared.
These are measurements realized with the SI system and adequateinstruments and standards for this system.
* To convert inches to millimeters, multiply by 25.4 * To convert inches to centimeters, multiply by 2.54 * To convert inches to meters, multiply by 0.0254
The metric system of measuring has three main units. The three units of measurement in the metric system are meter, kilogram and second.
move the decimal point the the correct spot
1 foot = 304.8 millimeters
Well, the only time you'd use this is in displacement of an irregular solid to find its density. In that case, if a liquid got displaced 200ml, you can convert it to cm3 like …this: 200ml=200cm3
Use google. For example open google and type "5 miles" and click search. Try it!
Everything. There is seven base units: metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, candela and mole. From these seven base units, several other units are derived. In addition t…o the SI units, there is also a set of non-SI units accepted for use with SI which includes some commonly used units such as the litre.
The Metric Kitchen--http://www.jsward.com/cooking/conversion.shtml
metric measurement is the system based on multiplies of 10. ie. there are 10 millimetres in a centimetre, 100 centimetres in a meter, 1000 metres in a kilometre. Similarly for… other measurements such as the Litre, or the kilogram.
It depends on which measurement or unit you want to convert. Each and every different unit has its own conversion factor.
How is converting a metric measurement to a metric measurement similar to and different from converting a metric measurement to a US Customary measurement?
Similarities: converting between any two units (of the same dimension) simply requires a conversion factor. Example: . 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters . 1 meter = 100 centimeter…s . 1 foot = 12 inches To convert from inches to centimeters, simply multiply by 2.54. To convert from meters to centimeters, simply multiply by 100. Each unit has a conversion factor with centimeter. Similarly, any unit will have a conversion factor with another unit (of the same dimension). Note that all of the units in the above example are length units. You cannot convert from volume to length, or mass to temperature, for example. To convert the other way (from centimeters to inches), you need to divide both sides of the equation above by 2.54: . 1/2.54 inch = 1 centimeter --> 0.39370 inch = 1 centimeter so you can now either multiply by 0.39370 or divide by 2.54 So the main difference is that in the metric system, all of the conversion factors will be powers of ten, and you can derive what power of ten to use from the prefixes. Centi- is always 100 (a centi- something is always 1/100 of the base unit). So there are 100 centigrams in a gram, 100 centimeters in a meter, 100 centiliters in a liter. In the customary system, you must know (or look up) the necessary conversion factor (12 inches in 1 foot, for example).
as often as possible
One can just convert it themselves. For example 1 inch is 2.54cm, and one pound is .45kg. There are many conversion tables that can be found, both in print and online that giv…e the full list of standard to metric conversions. Also many scientific calculators have the conversions built in so one just has to enter data and it converts it for them.
There are many different places that you can find a conversion chart for converting imperial measure to metric measure. You can go to many large chain stores and it is very li…kely that they will have conversion charts available to purchase. If you prefer, you can do a web search and this will give you plenty of options to choose from to find the chart you want.
To convert 25 pounds into metric measurements: 2.20462 lb = 1 kg Therefore divide by 2.20462: 25 lb = 25 / 2.20462 kg/lb = 11.34 kg
