# How is temperature measured in the metric system?

Temperature is measured in the metric system using degrees Celsius(centigrade). The official scale is actually the Kelvin scale, which uses thesame degree size, but begins at… absolute zero. Kelvin is often usedfor special scientific usage with very high or low temperatures. Itis also preferred for certain computations using the gas law,because the product of pressure and volume is directly proportionalto Kelvin temperature. Answer In the SI system, the base unit of measurement for temperature isthe kelvin. Celsius is a metric unit, but it is NOT an SI unit.

# In the metric system speed can be measured by?

In the metric system the base units for measurement of velocity (speed) is meters for distance and time in seconds , making the standard base formula for velocity meters p…er second . For very small or very large measurements, the SI prefixes of centi-, deci-, micro-, kilo-, etc., may be used ahead of meters, and time can be converted to milliseconds, microseconds, hours, minutes, days, or any other measurement of the passage of time.

# The liter is the metric measure of what in the metric system?

Volume is measured in Litres in the metric system

# What is the linear measurement in the metric system?

All metric units of linear measurement are multiples or sub-multiples of the meter . -- nanometer = 10 -9 -- millimeter = 10 -3 -- centimeter = 10 -2 -- meter --… kilometer = 10 3 . . etc.

# What are the units for metric system of measurements?

Length . . . meter Mass . . . kilogram Time . . . second Electric current . . . ampere Thermodynamic temperature . . . kelvin Amount of substance . . . mole …Luminous intensity . . . Candela All the other units are derived from these. According to Halliday and Resnick ("Fundamentals of Physics", Wiley, 1974, p.8) "Three different systems of units are most commonly used in science and engineering. They are the meter-kilogram-second or mks system, the Gaussian system in which the fundamental mechanical units are the centimeter, the gram, and the second (a cgs system), and the British engineering system (a foot-pound-second or fps system). According to Masterton and Slowinski ("Chemical Principles", WB Saunders Company, 1973, pp. 4-5) "The unit of mass used most frequently in chemistry is the gram , which represents one thousanth of the mass of a platinum-iridium block kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (1 kg = 10 3 g)." So unless you are talking about a system of units, the unit of mass is the gram. Length; millimetre (mm), centimetre (cm), metre (m) 1 metre = 3.28 feet

# Is metric system and metric measurements the same?

Answer: yes Answer: No, but they are related. A "system" is not the same as a "measurement".
