 # Convert Metric Measurements From One Unit to Another

In this worksheet, students convert metric measurements from one unit to another. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Convert Between Metric Measurements

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember that centi means a hundredth and milli means a thousandth.

1 cm is 1/100 of a metre and 1 cl is 1/100 of a litre.

1 mm is 1/1000 of a metre and 1 ml is 1/1000 of a litre.

so 10 mm = 1 cm and 10 ml = 1 cl

Example

Convert 24.5 cl to ml and l.

10 ml = 1 cl, so we multiply 24.5 by 10 to get 245 ml.

245/1000 = 0.245 litres

Answer: 24.5 cl = 245 ml and 0.245 l

• Question 1

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

8.3 g =  ______________ mg

8300
EDDIE SAYS
1 milli is 1/1000 8.3 g x 1000 = 8300 mg
• Question 2

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

6.8 cl =  ______________ ml

68
EDDIE SAYS
Convert 6.8 cl to ml. 10 ml = 1 cl, so multiply 6.8 by 10 to get 68 ml.
• Question 3

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

5.6 km =  ______________ m

5600
EDDIE SAYS
5.6 km x 1000 = 5600 m
• Question 4

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

26.3 cl =  ______________ ml

263
EDDIE SAYS
Convert 26.3 cl to ml. 10 ml = 1 cl, so we multiply 26.3 by 10 to get 263 ml.
• Question 5

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

4.7 cl =  ______________ ml

47
EDDIE SAYS
Convert 4.7 cl to ml and l. 10 ml = 1 cl, so we multiply 4.7 by 10 to get 47 ml.
• Question 6

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

67242 cm =  ______________ km

0.67242
EDDIE SAYS
67242 cm divided by 100 = 672.42 672.42 divided by 1000 = 0.67242 km
• Question 7

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

41358 cl =  ______________ litres

413.58
EDDIE SAYS
Convert 41358 cl to ml and l. 10 ml = 1 cl, so we multiply 41358 by 10 to get 413,580 ml. 413580/1000 = 413.58 litres
• Question 8

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

8.4 g =  ______________ mg

8400
EDDIE SAYS
8.4 g x 1000 = 8400 mg
• Question 9

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

19173 cm =  ______________ m

191.73
EDDIE SAYS
19173 cm divided by 100 = 191.73
• Question 10

Convert the following measurement into the given unit.

82028 cl =  ______________ litres

820.28
EDDIE SAYS
Convert 82028 cl to ml and l. 10 ml = 1 cl, so we multiply 82028 by 10 to get 820280 ml. 820280/1000 = 820.28 litres
