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 U....
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 the  store?', etc. The unit of length in the SI (metric) system is the  metre, nowadays defined by the wavelength of certain atomic  transitions. With the concept of length we may compare the size of  different things. Ranging from the...
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 perhaps  revealing someone's linguistic limits! I think you may mean  "training in metric", a somewhat short form of "training to  understand and use metric measurements hence the ISO-metric  system". (metres, litres, grammes, etc.)
A "standard" may use "metrics" in its definition or as a means to  achieving it, but they are synonyms. Metrics are an assessment of  performance, quality, etc.
Unanswerable question. A barrel is a unit of volume, a tonne (to  spell it correctly, to distinguish it from the Imperial-system  based US and UK Ton) is a unit of mass. So there are no barrels in  a tonne.
Light year, the Distance travelled by light in a year. .. The  general unit for distance is meters... so light travels at 300 000  000 m/s. 60 seconds in 1 minute. 60 minutes in 1 hour. 24 hours in  1 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 in  either Imperial or metric units, so to convert find the relevant  formula.  To share the contents in 3 equal parts, use either a balance or  a measuring-jug, but to be honest it will be just...
Nothing. The ounce is not a metric unit.
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 these  French-originated units: a meter measures, the metre is a  measure. 
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 the  early years of the Republic of France in the 18C, to impose some  order on the nation's long-established but absurdly plethoric  assortment of independent, regional, trade-based units of measure.
All technical, trade and everyday measurements. It, or more  accurately SI, the ISO-devised derivative of the original, is  slowly becoming the world's only officially-recognised system for  all 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 kilogramskilometersmetersthat's the only one's I knowgoogle~ 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 the  basic unit of fluid volume.  Although intended for fluids, it has become popular with car  manufacturers, for some bizarre reason, in describing the space  inside their vehicles. The cubic metre would be far more sensible,  and...
Plenty available in book-shops, as appendices in science or cookery  text-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 divide  by 10.
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 prefixes...
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 a  bowl usually holds a fluid. Possibly c.c. (cubic centimetres) - not  strictly 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. The  Statute Mile is still the only legal unit for roads in the UK;  Network Rail still uses miles and chains (1ch = 22yds) for  distances along railways; beer may still be dispensed in "pubs" in  pints and half-pints. Many people...
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 many  calibrated in both lbs &oz and Kg & g.
You can't mix units of mass with those of fluid volume.
1 tablespoon = 14.7867648 milliliters
Although USA is claiming following the SI units but it follows the  British unit system. It is foot for length, pound for mass, and  second for time.
You have: F = ( m ) ( a ) = ( 1.0 kg ) (1.0 m/s^2 ) = 1.0 Newton =1.0 N
16093.44 m1 mile = 1609.344 meters1 meter = 0.00062 mile
0.497 mi1 mile = 1609.344 meter 1 meter = 0.00062 mi
Yes, 1 kg is bigger than 900 g. 1 kg = 1000 g > 900 g
165762.43 m1 mile = 1609.344 meters 1 meter = 0.00062 mile
Many. The American system is very similar to the Imperial  (British) system on which it was based, though some of the units  such as the Ton and gallon differ in size.  =  The main point about those is that the various units are not  mutually consistent, and their subdivisions / multiples are...
The metric system is used all over the world.
10 kg = 10 000 g   To convert from kg to g, multiply 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
It is called "international" because it is used internationally and  ratified in its Systeme Internationale (SI) form for all trading,  scientific and engineering purposes, by the International Standards  Organisation.
The weight of an issue of  anymagazine depends on 2 factors:   - the number of pages   - the paper weight (g/m²)        Here are the weights (in  grams) of some (computer & video game)  magazines along with their number of pages:    Weight Pages Magazine   149g...
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.
    == Answer ==     A 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.
It is meter for length, kilogram for mass, and second for time.
1000 meters
The SI Unit for frequency is the hertz also known as an inverted  second denoted by s-1.
32000 g = 32 kg   To convert from g to kg, divide by 1000.
76.3 g = 0.0763 kg To convert from g to kg, divide by 1000.
The standard unit of volume in the metric system is liter or litre. By using decimal prefixes we can arrive at smaller or larger units of measure. It is no coincidence that there is a relationship between liter as volume, meter as distance and water:1 liter = 1 cubic decimeter = 1 kilogram of water...
281 US gallons are in in 1 tonne of IFO 380. IFO 380 has a typical density of 0.94 kg/l at 15°C The reciprocal of 0.94 (1/0.94) is 1.064 so now we can ask google to convert litres per kilogram to gallons per tonne by forming a query like this: "1.064 liters per kilogram in gallons per tonne"
The four standard base units of the metric system are liter  for liquid measurement, meter for length, gram for  weight, and degrees (celsius) for temperature.   Less commonly noted are amperes for electric current,  candalas for measuring light intensity, or even  seconds for time.   ...
1 mile = 1609.344 meter 1 meter = 0.00062 mi
Principally simpler arithmetic based on powers of 10.  '  It is more artificial than the older measurement systems based  on trade practices, so some units are rather clumsy for everyday  use; but it allowed the development of the fully-coherent,  ISO-ratified, 'Systeme International' used the...
No. Imperial. The Metre (to use its correct, French, spelling - not'meter'!) is the nearest metric unit to the yard, at roughly 39inches, but that is co-incidental. They are in totally differentsystems.
yes not aton is a weaghing thing a metric ton is a measurment
What is project metrics
23586.8g[rammes] (the proper French name - not 'grams').  In practice you would round that to 23587g and divide by 1000 to  give 23.868kg, very likely round again to 23.9kg with a mass that  large and depending on the precision needed.  1lb = 453.5924g 
Mass uses (g) grams in metric systemBUT- MASS USES (kg) Kilogram IN THE SI SYSTEM
You should know that already cause' I'm not going to tell you.
One quart equals about 0.95 liters in the metric system
1 million ml in 1 kl. Milli- means 1/1000. There are 1000 milli- anything in the base unit. Kilo- means 1000. There are 1000 base units in the kilo-unit. 1000 x 1000 = 1000000 (1 million).
68 kg = 68 000 g   To convert from kg to g, multiply by 1000.
No, temperature is measured in kelvin, or in less technical cases degrees Celsius.
245 tonnes are 245 000 kilograms.
millione millimeter is one thousandth of a meterone milliliter is one thousandth of a liter
