A conversion factor is a fraction that has equivalent values in the numerator and denominator. For example,
60 seconds = 1 minute. Therefore, we can write 2 different conversation factors: 60 sec or 1 min
1 min
60 sec
Both measurements represent the same length of time, even if they do not look the same.
Abbreviated dimensional analysis rules:
2. Multiply by a conversion factor being sure that the unit to be discarded is on the bottom and the desired unit is
on the top.
3. Cancel the units
4. Perform numerical calculations. Please note, the sig figs will be limited by the original number that was given.
It will not be limited by numbers included in conversion factors.
Ex. 1. How many milligrams are in 20 kilograms?
Solve with dimensional analysis.
Conversion factors: 1000mg = 1 g and 1000g = 1 kg
20.0 kg x 1000 g x 1000 mg = 2.00 x 107 mg
1 kg
1g
Ex. 2. Convert 250 cm to __________m
250 cm x
The following lists some common conversion factors that you need to know:
1 km = 1000 m
1 m = 100cm
1 g = 1000 mg
1 m = 1000 mm
1L = 1000 mL
1 in = 2.54 cm
1 cm = 10 mm
1kg = 1000 g
Here are some conversions factors that you are not expected to know:
1 mi = 1.61 km
1 qt = 0.946 L
1 lb = 454 g
1 mi = 1.61 km
1 L = 1.06 qt
1kg = 2.2 lbs
1 m = 2.5 m
100 cm
1cm3 = 1 mL
1 mL = 20 drops
1 oz = 28.3 g
1 ton = 2000lb
1 mi = 5280 feet
