Some metric units include: kilogram, millimeter, centimeter, and kilometer.

Why the conversions in the metric system are easier to make than conversions in the US system of measurements?

conversions in the metric system are easier to make than conversions in the US system of measurements because they are either divided or multiplied by powers of 10 for example the US Customary system is a system of measurements which is used only in the US and seldom elsewhere.
