# Metric to Standard Conversion Chart

## Introduction

Comparing an unknown quantity to one already known is the measurement process. A numerical value with specific units is the measurement’s output. Here, you can find measure conversion tables to make it simple to change measurements between different units. Understanding unit conversion will be made more accessible by various metric conversion charts.

This article will include length, mass, area, volume, liquid volume, temperature, and time conversion charts.

## Measurement Conversion Charts

Measurement Conversion Charts provide us with conversion factors for conversions metric to standard conversions or vice versa and serve as a reference for easy and quick calculations.

The fundamental measurement units are mostly based on length, volume, time, weight, temperature and area. Some of the basic metric units include meters (m), kilograms (kg), seconds (s), kelvin (K), etc. Some of the basic standard units include inches (in), feet (ft), pounds (lb), pints (pt), etc.

## Metric to Standard Conversion

The main difference between the metric and standard units is the terms and types of units used. The table below shows the metric and standard units used for length, mass, and volume.

## Measurement Conversion Charts for Length

The length/distance conversion chart provides the fundamental unit conversions for length in a clear and understandable format. The common units of length in the metric system are kilometers (km), meters (m), centimeters (cm), and so forth.

The table below shows the metric unit conversions for length.

## Examples

Example 1

Convert 10 meters into inches.

Solution

We know 1 m = 39.37 inches from the metric to the standard conversion chart.

Hence,

10 m = 10 × 39.37 inches = 393.7 inches

Therefore, 10 meters equals 393.7 inches or 10 m = 393.7 in.

Example 2

What is 25 kg in pounds?

Solution

From the metric to standard conversion table, we know that 1 kilogram = 2.20462 pounds.

Thus, we have,

25 kg = 25 × 2.20262 lb. = 55.0655 lb.

Therefore, 25 kilograms is equal to 55.1155 pounds or 25 kg = 55.0655 lb.

Example 3

A group of tourists travelled 3 miles. Calculate how much distance they travelled in kilometers.

Solution

About the standard to metric conversion for length, 1 mile = 1.609 kilometers.

Thus, we have,

3 miles = 3 × 1.609 kilometers =  4.83 kilometers

Therefore, the tourists travelled 3 miles or 4.83 kilometers or 3 mi = 4.83 km.

Example 4

Convert the following using metric to standard conversion charts.

( a ) 30 grams to ounces
( b ) 15 cubic meters to cubic feet
( c ) 20 sq meters to yards
( d ) 18 kilometers to yards
( e ) 33 liters to pints

Solution

( a ) 30 grams to ounces

From the metric to standard conversion chart for mass, we know that 1 gram = 0.035274 ounces.

Hence, we have,

30 grams = 30 × 0.035274 ounces = 1.05822 ounces

Therefore, 30 grams equals 1.05822 ounces or 30 g = 1.05822 oz.

( b ) 15 cubic meters to cubic feet

From the metric to standard conversion chart for mass, we know that 1 cubic meter = 35.31467 cubic feet.

Thus, we have,

15 cubic meters = 15 × 35.31467 cubic feet = 529.72009 cubic feet

Therefore, 15 cubic meters is equal to 529.72009 cubic feet or 15 cu m = 529.72009 cu ft.

( c ) 20 sq meters to sq yards

From the metric to standard conversion chart for mass, we know that 1  sq meter = 1.196 sq yards.

Hence, we have,

20 sq meters = 20 × 1.196 sq yards = 23.92 sq yards

Therefore, 20 sq meters equals 23.92 sq yards or 20 sq m = 23.92 sq yd.

( d ) 18 kilometers to yards

From the metric to standard conversion chart for mass, we know that 1 kilometer = 1093.6 yards.

Hence, we have,

18 kilometers = 18 × 1093.6  yards = 19684.8 yards

Therefore, 18 kilometers is equal to 19684.8 yards or 18 km = 19684.8 yd.

( e ) 33 liters to pints

From the metric to standard conversion chart for mass, we know that 1 liter = 2.113376 pints.

Hence, we have,

33 liters = 33 × 2.113376 pints = 69.74 pints

Therefore, 33 liters equals 69.74 pints or 33 l = 69.74 pt.

Example 5

Covert the following using the above standard to metric conversion charts.

( a ) 5 pint to milliliters
( b ) 12 cubic inches to cubic centimeters
( c ) 43 yards to meters
( d ) 22 sq mile to hectares
( e ) 5 cubic yards to cubic meters

Solution

( a ) 5 pint to milliliters

Using the standard to metric conversion chart, we know that 1 pint = 473.17648 milliliters.

Thus, we have,

5 pint = 5 × 473.17648 milliliters = 2365. 8824 milliliters

Therefore, 5 pints is equal to 2365.8824 milliliters or 5 pt = 2365.8824 ml

( b ) 12 cubic inch to cubic centimeters

Using the standard to metric conversion chart, we know that 1 cubic inch = 16.38706 cubic centimeters.

Thus, we have,

12 cubic inch = 12 × 16.38706 cubic centimeters = 196.64472 cubic centimeters

Therefore, 12 cubic inches is equal to 196.64472 cubic centimeters or 12 cu in = 196.64472 cu cm.

( c ) 43 yards to meters

Using the standard to metric conversion chart, we know that 1 yard = 0.914 meters

Thus, we have,

43 yards = 43 × 0.914 meters =  39.302 meters

Therefore, 43 yards equals 39.302 meters or 43 yd = 39.302 m.

( d ) 22 sq mile to hectares

Using the standard to metric conversion chart, we know that 1 sq miles = 259 hectares.

Thus, we have,

22 sq mile = 22 × 259 hectares =  5698 hectares

Therefore, 22 sq mile equals 5698 hectares or 22 sq mi = 5698 ha.

( e ) 5 cubic yards to cubic meters

Using the standard to metric conversion chart, we know that 1 cubic yard = 0.76455 cubic meters.

Thus, we have,

5 cubic yards =5 × 0.76455 cubic meters =  3.82275 cubic meters

Therefore, 5 cubic yards is equal to 3.82275 cubic meters or 5 cu yd = 3.82275 cu m.
