metric system conversions

  1. Does anyone have a link or a file with a good metric system conversion chart? Just some basics volume, weight, etc. I can do that math, just the basic level conversions I can't seem to find on the internet anywhere and our book is terrible.
    Thanks.

    Hi time!!

    I have one we used for our classes, but when I tried to scan it and send it to a fellow student for summer review, it was too big to mail....not real savvy with that yet.

    Here's a few I can't live without:

    1 oz. = 30 ml = 2 T = 6 t
    2.2 lb. = 1 kg
    1 cup = 8 oz. = 240 cc/ml
    15 gr = 1 g
    60 mg = 1 gr


    Are you looking for anything more specific than that? I'm from the WAY old school of U.S. measurements so have had a heck of a time with metrics. Have just picked it up here and there on the run. I was trying to transfer files from my old PC to my new laptop this a.m and realized that I still have no clue about KB, MG, GB, lol....I can eyeball a pint or a cup for you, but couldn't do the same with a mg of anything!!

    Best wishes!!

    here are links to conversion charts. there should also be conversion tables in the appendix of a medical dictionary, your nursing textbook and your nursing drug handbook if you have any of these.

    Those are very cool!! I don't know how you keep track of everything!! I've got folders of stuff everywhere, but if a gun was to my head, I couldn't put my hands on anything quickly!!!

    Its the best! It even converts from modern measurements to ancient ones like cubits etc and wine bottles...

    Don't forget Google's unit converter.

    It works for the simple stuff like "5.44 inches in mm" but also for the goofier stuff like "20,000 leagues in parsecs", "3.74 cubits in hands", or "1 inch in light years"
