400726.65 meters 1 mile = 1609.344 meters 1 meter = 0.00062 mile

1 mile = 1609.344 meters. 1609.344 divided by 5 times 3 = 965.6064 meters.

The metric system (SI, to be precise) is used everywhere in the scientific community, and most of the units are used in practice in most countries of the world.

capital T is Tera, 1012 or 1,000,000,000,000

Since there are 10 decimeters to each meter, they are the same - if we ignore things like significant numbers. Strictly speaking it'd have to be 30.0 meters to be the same as 300 decimeters. Otherwise, rounding off rules might make the meters actually longer than the decimeters.

calorie was but is now obsolete. Joule and kJ are used instead because they are the SI energy unit

Hours is a unit of time and kilometers a unit of distance. There is no conversion between them.

A Kilogram is 1,000 (one thousand) grams which is almost roughly equal to a ounce a kilogram is a metric measurement.

50000 centimetres, as there is 100 centimetres in a metre.

yes. every country except the U.S.A. , Liberia and Burma ( Myanmar) officially use it

The coulomb is not a unit of current, it is a unit of charge. Current, known as amperes, is coulombs per second.

To convert a metric number to a metric number, you take the number and multiply it by 1.

Scientists use the metric system because it is easier (that's a simple way to put it). The more complex reason is that the US is the only country that uses the other system for anything (other then a few countries like England who use miles for distance). But it is used because all of the measurements are in 10. Eg. 10mm=1cm 100cm=1m 1,000cm=1km This and because it is the "universal" way of measuring is the… Read More

Because the French Physicist Ampere did a lot of important research and published a lot of new knowledge relating to electric current, so when it came time for the scientific community to define and name new units, they immortalized his memory by perpetuating his name as the unit of current. But of course, the whole thing was just a twist of fate, as so many of life's developments are. Had the discoveries been realized and… Read More

In SI, the usual unit is kg/m3. Other units used include kg/liter, or the equivalent gram/cm3.

Gravity is a form of acceleration and so is measured in metres per second^2.

the litre is the standard si unit for volume.

That depends what there are 39.37 of... 39.37 inches = 1.000 metre

7 grams is bigger than 698 mg. In fact it is much larger: 7 g = 7000 mg.

If your dumb then u would be looking at this. But if ur smart u would'ent be looking this up. Loz loser

Base unit for distance is Meter (m). When you measuring something longer like distance between cities then it's Kilometer (km) or 1000 m. When it's really small distance then it's Centimeter (cm) 1/100 of a meter or millimeter (mm) 1/1000 of a meter. There are many other smaller and larger units, but every thing is divisible by 10 so it's very simple to convert one to another. It's not like 1 mile equal to 5280… Read More

There is no single equivalent. Each pair of measures has a different equivalence.

Every cultures as its ways to communicate measurements. It worked fine if you only lived in your community where everybody used the same thing. People started to realize a problem when goods began to be traded between communities and cultures. You can see the origin of the English system where feet, hands, stones were really originally used to measure things. They standardized it so that 1 foot from one region means the same as another… Read More

Kilometres for the total walk, metres for sections of the walk.

There is 1362.7 miles in 2193km. There is 2193000m or 219.3 million cm. How the miles are figured out: There is 0.621 miles in 1 kilometer. 0.621 miles in 1 kilometer X 2193 kilometers 1362.7 miles

The main unit for distance is the meter. Derived units are of course also used, for example centimeter, millimeter, micrometer, nanomenter, kilometer. For some reason, megameter is rarely used for a million meters; instead, this is commonly expressed as "1000 kilometers". Similarly, larger prefixes might be used, but they are seldom used in practice.

none, metric makes the most sense of any measuring system, I think the Brits use the metric system, you're thinking of the U.S., they're all messed up "5280 feet in a mile" that's so random! or 1000 meters in a km.? What makes most sense to you? , every country in the world should make the switch, miles and feet are retarded! Answer For some strange reason, the Americans call their system of measurement, the… Read More

i thnk it has something to do with liters... its like liters, deciliters, centiliters or mililiters, or heckaleters and deckaleters sooo i have no clue

it should be yotta with the symbol of Y. See related link below for more info on Yotta

There are many units of length in the metric system which varies from larget to smallest .The largest unit in metric system is km and smallest unit is mm.

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… Read More

"SI" stands for speed index. It is a way of rating a horse's racing speed in AQHA horse racing.

The metric system because it is based on the number 10 and that's easier to remember that like 14, and if anyone else asked this question you meant then not that.

So that they could have a single unit for everything. It didn't really turn out like that...

2.54 kg = 2 540 000 mg To convert from kg to mg, multiply by 1 000 000 (one million).

its an easy way to count the number of objects and it is easy to add up. just remember the old saying. . . . King Henry Died Monday Drinking Chocolate Milk. Kilo Hecto Deka Meter Deci Centi Milli

One Quadrillion metres is 1 x 1015metres, 1 petametre. One metre is 0.000 62 miles' 10 petametres are 621 370 000 000 miles.

9 500 000 km = 9 500 000 000 m 9.5 million km = 9.5 billion m

Inches, centimeters, and millimeters. Depending on the ruler, some may not have millimeter measurements.

First we google 1 meter to get the number of feet, thus 1 m = 3.28084. Now, therefore 1 meter squared would equal 3.28084 x 3.28084 = 10.7639 feet squared. Now to get the answer, all we do is multiply by 46, thus 46 x 10.76391 = 496.13991 feet squared.

There can be no equivalence. An inch is a measure of linear displacement while a degree is a measure of angular displacement. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at conversion from one to the other is a fundamentally flawed procedure.

The whole metric system is counted in base 10, that is it uses the digits; 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. As we use base ten to count almost everything in the universe, it makes the calculations much simpler.

That depends on what country you are in. In most European countries, and their former colonies (like the U.S.A.) the older systems were descendents of the ancient Roman systems. Both inch and ounce derive from the Latin word uncia, meaning twelve, which is why there are twelve inches in a feet (but 16 oz in a pound and 20 oz in a uk pint)

By unit of length and distance and conversion ,we can say that 5 foot into cm =152.4 2 in into cm=5.08 adding we get =157.48 cm

The liter is the base unit of volume. Under the SI the base unit is the cubic metre, 1m3 equals 1 000 litre.

The base unit of mass in the SI is the kilogram. There are a thousand grams in a kilogram, and a thousand kilograms in a tonne.

They cannot because they are the same system!

Meter / second / second, usually written as meter/second2, is the unit. There is no special name for this unit. It is a unit used for acceleration.

Force is measured in newton. Weight is a force; therefore it is also measured in newton.

There is no SI "base unit" for area. Originally there was a unit called an are which was equivalent to 100 square meters, but this has fallen out of favor. The hectare (100 are, or 10,000 square meters, or the area of a square 100 meters on a side) is also sometimes used, but it's not a base unit. Area is a derived quantity (from the unit for length), so the most appropriate SI unit… Read More

The metric system was first introduced in 1799 in France. The system is used in many countries across the world, but not in the United States of America.

The standard units are: Length: meter mass: kilogram volume: cubic meter SI prefixes are commonly used for larger and smaller units; for example, kilo for thousand, Mega for million, Giga for billion, etc.; and for smaller units: milli for a thousandth, micro for a millionth, etc. - but note the following: For meter, it is not common to use prefixes above "kilo". "megameter" is technically correct, but seldom used. The use of smaller prefixes (milli… Read More

It is 4.982 lbs (approx.). Kilogram is an SI unit of mass and pound is an imperial unit. To convert from kg to pound multiply kg unit by 2.20462.

The answer is 0.01 mg, here's how: A microgram is 10^-6 grams, and a milligram is 10^3 grams. You can set up an equation as follows: 10 x 10^-6 grams = A x 10^-3 grams, then solve for A = 10 x 10^-3 = 10^-2 or 0.01

308.647 lbs (approx.). Kilogram (kg) is SI unit of mass and Pound is an Imperial unit. To convert from kg to pound multiply kg unit by 2.20462. To convert from pound to kg multiply pound unit by 0.453592.

The kilogram or kilogramme is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI).

People using the metric system would use millimeters to measure small distances, like the thickness of a nail.

That depends what aspect of the aeroplane you're measuring. An aeroplane's length would be measured in metres, as would its height. The mass of the aeroplane would be in kilograms. Its speed would be in metres per second or more traditionally kilometres per hour.

No:( The metric system is much simpler in my opinion and is used by the rest of the world. I guess this is what makes the USA unique though.

That depends on what units the thermometer is calibrated in. The SI unit for temperature is the kelvin, but degrees Celsius commonly used, if the thermometer reads in kelvin or degrees Celsius then it is a metric tool.

By capacity, I assume you mean volume. That would be the liter.

We will face many problems such as man power increases,waste of time and money,the building is not strong enough and many more.It can also cause confusion to the workers.

The system of counting we use in everyday life is called base ten. This means that we count in tens, we have ten symbols to represent numbers; 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. With these ten symbols we can represent any number. To do this we place the symbols in a certain order, unlike writing words numbers start on the right and move to the left. The first symbol represents units… Read More

Yes it is a subdivision (one thousandth) of the metric unit of length the "meter".

The imperial system has been replaced by the metric systems in most of the countries. Examples of imperial system includes: Length: inches, feet, yards while the metric system includes meter for length and kilogram for mass.
