Metric System WS
Base Units:
• Liter (l)
o Volume (liquid)
• Gram (g)
o Mass (solid)
• Meter (m)
o Length
• Celsius (C)
o Temperature
Date: ____________
Per: ______
Temperature Conversions:
&deg;F = (1.8 x &deg;C) +32
&deg;C = (&deg;F-32) x 0.555
Kelvin = &deg;C + 273.2
Area:
1 cubic meter (m3) = 1000 L = 1 kiloliter (kl)
1 milliliter (mL) = 0.001 L= 1 cubic centimeter (cm3)
Move decimal to the right
for each “step”
Move decimal to the left
for each “step”
Prefixes: (all are lower case letters)
kilo = k = 1,000 x base unit
hecto = h = 100 x base unit
deka = da = 10 x base unit
deci = d = .1 x base unit
centi = c = .01 x base unit
milli = m = .001 x base unit
**NOTE the difference in
prefix (da vs. d)
