Metric System

Parent Category: Units of Measure
The metric system is an international basis of measurement based on a decimal system. It uses standard base units to name larger and smaller units.
Yes, the predominant units are all still metric, althoughcosmologists exploring the earliest instants after the big bangoften use units of planck time instead, but this of course is stillbased on the metric system. . +++ . The only other two units of time relevant in Astronomy andGeology are the...
Each has its own units of length. The metric system is more logical, because when you convert from one unit to another, you multiply or divide by powers of ten, which amounts to moving the decimal point. For example, 2.3 kilometers = 2300 meters; or .75 meter = 75 centimeter. On the other hand, a...
This field require measurements to function, from a fiscal studyof movement to the administration of the right medication, thismeasurements need units and since the metric system facilitatesconversions this tends to be used. For example you are told that acare is travelling at 100 kilometres per...
Length is one of the basic familiar dimensions - 'how far to thestore?', etc. The unit of length in the SI (metric) system is themetre, nowadays defined by the wavelength of certain atomictransitions. With the concept of length we may compare the size ofdifferent things. Ranging from the microscopic...

The metric systems base unit for length is the metre (m).
4 light years means distance traveled by light in 4 years of time. Lets see how many seconds does 4 year have 4*365*24*60*60 126144000 sec Now multiply this with velocity of light 3*10^8*126144000 378432000*10^8 3.78432*10^16 m.....
Yes. Iceland only uses the metric system and the imperial system is not widely known or accepted.
The phrase "training metric" means nothing - except perhapsrevealing someone's linguistic limits! I think you may mean"training in metric", a somewhat short form of "training tounderstand and use metric measurements hence the ISO-metricsystem". (metres, litres, grammes, etc.)
A "standard" may use "metrics" in its definition or as a means toachieving it, but they are synonyms. Metrics are an assessment ofperformance, quality, etc.
1 mile = 1609.344 meters 1 meter = 0.00062 mile
Unanswerable question. A barrel is a unit of volume, a tonne (tospell it correctly, to distinguish it from the Imperial-systembased US and UK Ton) is a unit of mass. So there are no barrels ina tonne.
1.6 kg = 1600 g To convert from kg to g, multiply by 1000.
Light year, the Distance travelled by light in a year. .. Thegeneral unit for distance is meters... so light travels at 300 000000 m/s. 60 seconds in 1 minute. 60 minutes in 1 hour. 24 hours in1 day. 365 days in a year. So 300000000 x 60 x 60 x 24 x 365 =9.46x10^15 m.
How to explain obscurely-worded questions? . Look on the label: it will give either volume or weight ineither Imperial or metric units, so to convert find the relevantformula. . To share the contents in 3 equal parts, use either a balance ora measuring-jug, but to be honest it will be just as...
Nothing. The ounce is not a metric unit.
Kilogram per cubic meter
Asking a multiple choice question without providing the choices doesn't really seem fair.
the stupid united states of americia
The weight of plastic Bread tray is 1.9kg.
1km (one kilometre.) The prefix "kilo" means "1000". . Note that I always use the proper French spelling for theseFrench-originated units: a meter measures, the metre is ameasure.
40 g = 0.04 kg To convert from g to kg, divide by 1000.
I'm not sure if it was the work of one individual. It arose in theearly years of the Republic of France in the 18C, to impose someorder on the nation's long-established but absurdly plethoricassortment of independent, regional, trade-based units of measure.
All technical, trade and everyday measurements. It, or moreaccurately SI, the ISO-devised derivative of the original, isslowly becoming the world's only officially-recognised system forall but a very few specific, allowed exceptions. . There are shades of use: officially the only recognised...
D (deca). Not a "preferred" multiple.
"lbs" is the abbreviation for pounds, there 713 pounds = 713 lbs.
grams centimeters kilograms kilometers meters that's the only one's I know google~ metric weight and measurements
No, these are part of the British Imperial and US customary systems. Grams are the closest metric equivalents.
Science is an international activity. For scientists to be able to cooperate they had to be able to communicate, without risk of mistakes or confusion; they had to adopt a system of units and measurement that all would use. They chose the metric system, and set up a consultative process so that all...

Yes. The litre (to give it its proper, French, spelling) is thebasic unit of fluid volume. . Although intended for fluids, it has become popular with carmanufacturers, for some bizarre reason, in describing the spaceinside their vehicles. The cubic metre would be far more sensible,and even better...
Plenty available in book-shops, as appendices in science or cookerytext-books, or on-line!
A lowercase k standing for kilo. An uppercase K is the symbol for kelvin, the base unit for temperature.
Quarts are a capacity measure and are part of the Imperial Weights and Measures System. As such, quarts can be regarded as a part of the English system.
If you mean from one multiple to the next, you multiply or divideby 10.
Yes, anything with the word, "meter" in it is an SI unit.
Yes it is in fact it is the easiest system of measurement used by the entire world except the United States. The reason it is so easy to use is that there is a consistent difference between different measurements and that the names of different measurements follow a pattern. Different...
10p Today, 23/4/12, 14 carat silver is selling at around £19.00 per gram. One tonne is 1000kg, which is 1 000 000 grams. so one tonne of 14 carat silver would be worth about £19 000 000.
The litre would be the most appropriate here, because we assume abowl usually holds a fluid. Possibly c.c. (cubic centimetres) - notstrictly an SI unit but favoured by chemists.
Metric was used for scientific reasons in 1864 but the final law making it a requirement to be put on all packaging was not until 1995.
It's been under way since the 1970s but has been very patchy. TheStatute Mile is still the only legal unit for roads in the UK;Network Rail still uses miles and chains (1ch = 22yds) fordistances along railways; beer may still be dispensed in "pubs" inpints and half-pints.

1.49 mile 1 mile = 1609.344 meters 1 meter = 0.00062 mile
help you set goals and measure wether you are meeting them
customary units of length is yards,feet,miles,and inches
Do you mean for weighing and at home? If so, any hardware /kitchen-ware / home-equipment stockist should have them, with manycalibrated in both lbs &oz and Kg & g.
You can't mix units of mass with those of fluid volume.
Assuming you really mean miles, 36 miles is 57934.8 metres. Force is mass times acceleration; Force = 18 X 57934.8 Force = 1 042 826.4 newtons, 1.04 meganewtons (MN) A Boeing 747 aeroplane generates between 200 and 300 kilonewtons per engine (300 kN = 0.3 MN)
1 tablespoon = 14.7867648 milliliters
Although USA is claiming following the SI units but it follows theBritish unit system. It is foot for length, pound for mass, andsecond for time.
If water, that is 141.096 ounces.
An Imperial Gallon of pure water weighs 10 Pounds. There are 2240 pound in an imperial Ton (note the spelling). (Tonne is metric) Therefore answer is 2240 divided by 10 = 224 Gallon. A US gallon of pure water weighs approximately 8.34 pounds, therefore a 2000 pound US ton of water would contain...
You have: F = ( m ) ( a ) = ( 1.0 kg ) (1.0 m/s^2 ) = 1.0 Newton =1.0 N
This depends on where you are because the size of a fluid ounce varies from country to country. In the UK a fluid ounce is 28.4 millilitres, but in the USA a fluid ounce is 29.6 millilitres. So in the UK one litre is roughly 35.2 fluid ounces, but in the USA one litre is roughly 33.8 fluid ounces...

Many. The American system is very similar to the Imperial(British) system on which it was based, though some of the unitssuch as the Ton and gallon differ in size. . = . The main point about those is that the various units are notmutually consistent, and their subdivisions / multiples are not...
10 kg = 10 000 g To convert from kg to g, multiply by 1000.
5000 g = 5 kg To convert from g to kg, divide by 1000.
3000 kg is 3 tonnes.
the only way to really is to use kilo meters! I know this doesn't really help, but help, but i tried
The imperial units of measure are an obsolete, middle age type, ridiculous and non-scientific system of units; it persists here and there only because of ignorant people.
It is called "international" because it is used internationally andratified in its Systeme Internationale (SI) form for all trading,scientific and engineering purposes, by the International StandardsOrganisation.

It would be micro. The full name would be micrometer.
4 g = 0.004 kg To convert from g to kg, divide by 1000.
To convert from kilograms (kg) to grams (g), multiply the given value by 1000.

6km is 3.73 miles.
\n. \n Answer \n. \nA teaspoon is used as a unit of volume, not weight. A teaspoon is 5 milliliter (5 ml). Actual teaspoons may contain more or less; the "5 ml" is for a teaspoon as used in cooking recipes.
4193m equals 4.193 kilometers.
It is meter for length, kilogram for mass, and second for time.
1000 meters
There are 0.050 kilograms in 50 grams. We need a conversion factor to figure it out. Let's look.. There is 0.001 kg in one gram. That's because there are 1000 grams in a kg. So a gram must be 1/1000th of a kg, or that 0.001 of a kg.. 50 g x (0.001 kg / 1 g) =. 50 x 0.001 kg = 0.050 kg
