Measuring with Metric Units Length (m) meter Volume

Measuring with Metric Units Length (m) meter Volume (L) Liter * 1 L = dm3 = (.1m)3 = .001 m3 Mass (g) gram

* Note the standard metric system is called MKS meters, kilograms, seconds The volume of 20 drops of liquid from a medicine dropper is approximately 1 mL. A sugar cube has a volume of 1 cm3. 1 mL = 1 cm3 (1 cc) cc stands for cubic centimeters 1 gallon of milk has

about twice the volume of a 2-L bottle of soda. 1 gal = 3.79 L 1 kg = 2.205 lb A 215 lb. person would weigh 97.5 kg Metric Prefixes Prefix Symbol Multiplier Examples: 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 B

1 MJ = 1,000,000 J 1 kg = 1,000 g BASE UNIT: 1m 1L 1g 1 cm = 0.01 m 1 mL = 0.001 L 1 g = 0.000 001 g
