Using the Metric System: meters, kilometers.
There are no distinct advantages. Here in Canada we use both and many people are routinely confused by metric weight and volume.
when did the US start using the metric system.
The basic SI (metric) unit for any kind of length or distance (length, width, height, etc...) is the metre (or meter if you're American). Other metric units for height are obtained using multiple-of-ten prefixes - for example, kilometres for thousands of metres, or centimetres for hundredths of metres.
The standard unit of volume in the metric system is liter or litre. By using decimal prefixes we can arrive at smaller or larger units of measure. It is no coincidence that there is a relationship between liter as volume, meter as distance and water:1 liter = 1 cubic decimeter = 1 kilogram of water at 4Â° C.
It is a measurement of volume using units from the metric system.
Standard measuments of length in Chemistry is Metric. Using the Metric system - The meter is the SI unit of length. The modern system is called the International System of Units or SI.
You will measure the volume of regular shaped objects using a metric ruler and calculating the length , width and height of the ruler .It can be calculated in cm and mm .
The most usual method to measure volume, using the metric system, is by means of a graduated cylinder. You can pour a fluid into it and then read the volume as marked on the cylinder.
Metric converter is used for all types of conversions, such as distance, length, volume, mass conversion, etc. Now you can convert all these units on your mobile by using online conversion site converterin.
When multiplying length by width by height, the volume of the object is calculated. Volume is measured in cubic metres, or m3.
I think a hectometer.
