Metric Conversion Equations

Let us see about metric conversion equations. The conversion is mainly done between the measurements. Generally, there are two types of measurements like standard measurement and metric measurements. There are more measurements in metric. The metric measurements used to measure the area, distance, energy, force, mass, power, pressure, velocity or speed, volume or capacity and volume of liquid.


Conversion Equations of Metric:

 

            The metric conversion equations are following below. The equations are forming by the table format. The basic metric units are meter, gram and liter. Some prefixes are,

                 1000  = kilo.

                    100 = Hecto.

                      10 = deca.

                      0.1= deci.

                    0.01 = centi.

                  0.001 = milli.

Conversion of length:

          The metric conversion of length equation is following below.

Conversion of Area:

          The metric conversion of area equation is described below.

                                                           Area conversion

1 square kilometer

1 million square meters

0.3861 square miles

1 hectare

10,000 square meters

2.471 acres

1 square meter

10.7639 square feet

1550.003 sq inch

1 square mile

640 acres

258.9988 hectares

1 square foot

144 square inches

929.0304 sq centimeters

These are the conversion equation for the standard to metric.

Examples of Conversion Equations:

 

Let us see some examples of metric conversions.

Example 1:

Convert the 2 millimeter scale into inches.

Solution:

1 millimeter = 0.03937 inches.

So, 2 millimeter = 2 * 0.03937.

                       = 0.07874.

Example 2:

Convert the 2 inch thread into centimeter.

Solution:

1 inch = 2.54 centimeter.

2 inch =  2.54 * 2.

          = 5.08 centimeter.

Example 3:

Convert the 2 square foot into square inches.

Solution:

1 square foot = 144 square inches.

2 square foot = 144 * 2.

                      = 288 square inches.
