# Metric electricity measurement whats it called juel or somthing?

In the SI system of measurements the unit of energy is the Joule, and 1 joule per second is 1 Watt. Electrical power has always been measured in Watts or Kilowatts.

# 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=Mi…lli(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.

# Why is the metric system called a decimal system of measurement?

Because "decimal" means "related to 10s" and the units of different magnitude (size) are related to one another by factors/multiples of ten.

# What are the metric system measurements?

The base units for the SI system are: length-meter, mass-kilogram, time-second, temperature interval-deg kelvin(or celsius), electric current-ampere, amount of substance…-mole, luminous intensity-candela. Some derived units are: area-hectare(10,000 sq m), volume-liter, weight-newton, energy-joule, power-watt, pressure-pascal or bar, frequency-hertz, angle-radian, potential difference-volt, resistance-ohm, capacitance-farad, inductance-henry

# How is metric thread pitch measured?

Metric thread pitch is measured directly from crest to crest of the thread form. For example the distance from crest to crest of a M8 x 1.25 MM thread would be 1….25 MM. Another way to measure it would be linear travel per rotation, in which case a M8 x 1.25 MM thread would travel 1.25 MM each rotation.

# What can be measured in metric?

# Why is the metric system called a decimal system of measurment?

Because it's based on the number ten! Decem is the Latin word for ten. The following words are also derived from the same Latin origin: decade meaning 10 years, December used… to be the tenth month in the old Roman calendar decimetre - there are 10 dm in a metre
