# Chart for metric conversion

We have told you a little about metric conversion yet. In this article we want to focus on **chart for metric conversions **only. Why? Because **conversion chart for metric units **can make your conversions so much easier.

Of course, in this article we will show you more than one chart, because there are so many kinds of metric conversion and so many situations when these charts can be useful. For instance, we are going to show you **metric conversion chart for elementary students **or **metric conversion chart for fabric and sewing**. Are you interested? Keep reading!

## Metric conversion chart

We will start with** chart for conversion of the metric system**. Metric to metric system conversions are the easiest one. That’s why we want to start with them. With a** chart for metric system conversion** your conversions will be even easier!

Which units can you find in a metric system? Three base units of metric system are meter, liter and gram. Meter is a unit of length, liter is a unit of volume and gram is a unit of mass. That’s why we are going to show you three different charts.

So let’s start with **conversion chart for metric length**. Have a look:

Metric to metric conversion chart – length | |

1 centimeter | 10 millimeters |

1 meter | 100 centimeters |

1 kilometer | 1000 meters |

Now let’s see an example. How many centimeters are in 20 meters? One meter is equal 100 centimeters. So you have to multiply 20 by 100. It gives 2000, so 20 meters are equal 2000 centimeters.

The next chart – **metric conversion chart volume**. Let’s see:

Metric to metric conversion chart – volume | |

1 centiliter | 10 milliliters |

1 liter | 1000 milliliters |

It is time for an example. How many milliliters are in 3 liters? One liter is equal 1000 milliliters, so you have to multiply 3 by 1000. It gives 3000. So 3 liters are equal 3000 milliliters.

The last metric to metric conversion chart, that is **metric conversion chart mass**. Have a look:

Metric to metric conversion chart – mass | |

1 tonne | 1000 kilograms |

1 kilogram | 100 decagrams |

1 decagram | 10 grams |

1 gram | 1000 milligrams |

Let’s see a practical example. How many grams are in 5 kilograms? One kilogram is equal 100 decagrams and one decagram is equal 10 grams, so you have to multiply 5 by 1000. It gives 5000, so 5 kilograms are equal 5000 grams.

**Conversion chart for metric measurements** is behind us, so now we can move on to other metric charts and other conversions. If you want to know more – keep reading!

### Metric to conversion chart

In this part we want to focus on **conversion chart for metric to standard**. What are the standard units? Standard units can be also called as US units or customary units of measurement.

In this case we also want to show you more than one chart. To be honest, it will be three charts. One for length, one for volume and one for mass. So let’s start.

We will start with** metric conversion chart length**, that is **conversion chart for metric to inches**. Have a look:

Metric to standard conversion chart – length | |

1 millimeter | 0.03937 inches |

1 centimeter | 0.39370 inches |

1 meter | 39.37008 inches |

1 meter | 3.28084 feet |

1 meter | 1.09361 yards |

1 kilometer | 1093.6133 yards |

1 kilometer | 0.62137 miles |

Time for examples. How many inches are in 25 centimeters? Multiply 25 by 0.39370. It gives 9.8425. After rounding off to two decimal places it is 9.84. So 25 centimeters are equal 9.84 inches.

Another example. Let’s use **yard metric conversion chart**. How many yards in 50 meters? Multiply 50 by 1.09361. It gives 54.6805. Round it off to two decimal places. It is 54.68, so 50 meters are equal 54.68 yards.

Now we can move on to **metric system conversion chart volume**. Have a look:

Metric to standard conversion chart – volume | |

1 cubic centimeter | 0.06102 cubic inches |

1 cubic meter | 35.31467 cubic feet |

1 cubic meter | 1.30795 cubic yards |

So how many cubic feet are in 10 cubic meters? Let’s multiply 10 by 35.31467. It gives 353.1467. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 353.15, so 10 cubic meters are equal 353.15 cubic feet.

The last chart – **metric conversion chart for weight**. Let’s see:

Metric to standard conversion chart – weight | |

1 gram | 0.035274 ounces |

1 kilogram | 2.20462 pounds |

1 kilogram | 35.27396 ounces |

1 tonne | 1.10231 short tons |

Let’s use **metric conversion chart grams to ounces**. How many ounces are in 30 grams? Multiply 30 by 0.035274. It gives 1.05822. Round it off to two decimal places. It is 1.06, so 30 gram are equal 1.06 ounces.

Now make an example using **metric conversion chart kilograms to pounds**. How many pounds are in 15 kilograms? Multiply 15 by 2.20462. It gives 33.0693. After rounding off to two decimal places it is 33.07, so 15 kilograms are equal 33.07 pounds.

The last example. Now we will use **conversion chart for metric ton**. How many short tons are in 10 metric tonnes? Multiply 10 by 1.10231. It gives 11.0231. Now round it off to two decimal places. It is 11.02. So 10 tonnes are equal 11.02 short tons.

**Conversion chart for metric to us** is already behind us, so we can move on to other conversions. What’s next?

### Metric conversion chart table

Now we want to show you **conversion chart for metric to imperial**. Another name for imperial system is english system, we will use these two names alternatively.

This time we will show you **conversion chart for metric system to imperial** for length and weight. We will also show you another chart for metric system to imperial volume, that is **metric conversion chart for liquids**.

So let’s start with **conversion chart for length metric system**. Have a look:

Metric to imperial conversion chart – length | |

1 centimeter | 0.39370 inches |

1 meter | 3.28084 feet |

1 kilometer | 0.62137 miles |

Let’s use **metric conversion chart to inches** first. How many inches are in 10 centimeters? Multiply 10 by 0.39370. It gives 3.9370. Round it off to two decimal places. It is 3.94, so 10 centimeters are equal 3.94 inches.

Now make an example using **metric conversion chart kilometers to miles**. Let’s convert 40 kilometers to miles. Multiply 40 by 0.62137. It gives 24.8548. After rounding off to two decimal places it is 24.85, so 40 kilometers are equal 24.85 miles.

Now have a look at **conversion chart for metric weight**. This chart is down below:

Metric to imperial conversion chart – weight | |

1 gram | 0.035274 ounces |

1 kilogram | 2.20462 pounds |

1 tonne | 1.10231 short tons |

Let’s use **metric conversion chart ounces**. How many ounces in 50 grams? Multiply 50 by 0.035274. It gives 1.7637. After rounding off to two decimal places it is 1.76, so 50 grams are equal 1.76 ounces.

Now we can move on to **metric conversion chart for liquids**. You can find it in the next part of this article.

### Metric conversion units chart

Topic of **metric conversion chart to english** is almost behind us. The last thing we want to show you is **metric conversion chart for fluids**. You can find this chart down below, have a look:

Metric to english conversion chart – fluids | |

1 millilitre | 0.035195 fluid ounces |

1 centilitre | 0.35195 fluid ounces |

1 litre | 35.1950 fluid ounces |

Let’s make an example using** metric conversion chart milliliters to ounces**. So how many fluid ounces in 20 milliliters? Multiply 20 by 0.035195. It gives 0.7039. After rounding off to two decimal places it is 0.70, so 20 milliliters are equal 0.70 fluid ounce.
