- Convert cm to mm (centimetres to millimetres)
- Convert m to km (metres to kilometres)
- Convert cm to m (centimetres to metres)
- Convert mm to cm (millimetres to centimetres)
- Convert kg to g (kilograms to grams)
- Convert g to kg (grams to kilograms)
- Convert L to mL (litres to millilitres)
- Convert mL to L (Millilitres to Litres)

## Conversion of Measurement Units

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert km to m (kilometres to metres)

**Example 1**

Convert:

4 km = ___ m

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 km = 1000 m

To find 4 km in m. We have to multiply both sides by 4

( 4 x 1 ) km = ( 4 x 1000 ) m

4 km = 4000 m

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert m to cm (metres to centimetres)

**Example 2**

Convert:

5 m = ___ cm

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 m = 100 cm

To find 5 m in cm. We have to multiply both sides by 5

( 5 x 1 ) m = ( 5 x 100 ) cm

5 m = 500 cm

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert cm to mm (centimetres to millimetres)

**Example 3**

Convert:

3 cm = ___ mm

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 cm = 10 mm

To find 3 cm in mm. We have to multiply both sides by 3

( 3 x 1 ) cm = ( 3 x 10 ) mm

3 cm = 30 mm

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert m to km (metres to kilometres)

**Example 4**

Convert:

7000 m = ___ km

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 km = 1000 m

or 1000 m = 1km

then,

1 m = 1/1000 km

To find 7000 m in km. We have to multiply both sides by 7000

( 7000 x 1 ) m = ( 7000 x 1/1000 )km

7000 m = 7 km

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert cm to m (centimetres to metres)

**Example 5**

Convert:

1000 cm = ___ m

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 m = 100 cm

or 100 cm = 1m

then,

1 cm = 1/100 m

To find 1000 cm in m. We have to multiply both sides by 1000

( 1000 x 1 ) cm = ( 1000 x 1/100 )m

1000 cm = 10 m

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert mm to cm (millimetres to centimetres)

**Example 6**

Convert:

50 mm = ___ cm

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 cm = 10 mm

or 10 mm = 1cm

then,

1 mm = 1/10 cm

To find 50 mm in cm. We have to multiply both sides by 50

( 50 x 1 ) mm = ( 50 x 1/10 )cm

50 mm = 5 cm

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert kg to g (kilograms to grams)

**Example 7**

Convert:

13 kg = ___ g

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 kg = 1000 g

To find 13 kg in g. We have to multiply both sides by 13

( 13 x 1 ) kg = ( 13 x 1000 ) g

13 kg = 13000 g

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert g to kg (grams to kilograms)

**Example 8**

Convert:

4000 g = ___ kg

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 kg = 1000 g

or 1000 g = 1kg

then,

1 g = 1/1000 kg

To find 4000 g in kg. We have to multiply both sides by 4000

( 4000 x 1 ) g = ( 4000 x 1/1000 )kg

4000 g = 4 kg

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert L to mL (litres to millilitres)

**Example 9**

Convert:

8 L = ___ mL

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 L = 1000 mL

To find 8 L in mL. We have to multiply both sides by 8

( 8 x 1 ) L = ( 8 x 1000 ) mL

8 L = 8000 mL

#### Conversion of Measurement Units – Convert mL to L (Millilitres to Litres)

**Example 10**

Convert:

5000 mL = ___ L

**Explanation:**

As we know that,

1 L = 1000 mL

or 1000 mL = 1L

then,

1 mL = 1/1000 L

To find 5000 mL in L. We have to multiply both sides by 5000

( 5000 x 1 ) mL = ( 5000 x 1/1000 )L

5000 mL = 5 L
