  # Convert Between Standard Units of Mass

In this worksheet, students will be asked to convert between standard units of mass using metric measures and solve problems using this knowledge. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Convert Between Standard Units

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, you will need to remember the standard conversion of metric measures for mass (weight).

Remember,

1 kg = 1000 g

1000 kg = 1 tonne

For example

To convert from grams to kgs

4000 g = _____ kg

There are 1000 g in a kg so I need to divide 4000 by 1000

4000 g ÷ 1000 = 4 kg

To convert from kg to grams

30 kg = _____ g

There are 1000 g in a kg so I need to multiply 30 by 1000

30 kg x 1000 = 30,000 g

To convert kg to tonnes

8000 kg = _____ tonnes

There are 1000 kg in a tonne, so I need to divide 8000 by 1000

8000 kg ÷ 1000 = 8 t

To convert tonnes to kg

6.56 t = _____ kg

There are 1000 kg in a tonne, so I need to multiply 6.56 by 1000

6.56 t x 1000 = 6560 kg
