DID YOU KNOW?
that you can divide 1 meter
by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)...

then make a cube (1000 cmณ)
of it to fill with water
and you will find that it
contains exactly 1 L (1 liter)
(1000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly
1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).

The International System of Units is called "SI"
and is the Metric Measurement used in America.

kilometer (km
)
also spelled kilometre
kilo is the Prefix meaning 1 000 times as much


There are exactly 1000 m (meters)
in 1 km (1 kilometer)
which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur"

Use the symbol km

Longer Distances are Measured in kilometers  
A trip across North America is approximately
7 600 kilometers long.


Measurements used for
Space Exploration are Measured
Exclusively in Metric Dimensions for Accuracy.

1 kilometer
(1 km)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning 1 000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters
(1000 m) is the length of
1 kilometer and it is simply
written 1 km

Longer distances like lakes
and rivers are measured
in kilometers

Going to work or holiday
distance is measured
in kilometers


A jog around the park can be measured in kilometers

Roads are measured
in kilometers

1 kilometer is about the
length of 60 train cars



A car traveling at
90 km/h
is moving at
90 kilometers
per hour

THAT'S EASY!

 

ROAD SIGN DRIVING TIP:
For example,
when you see a sign
that is shown as 90 km/h
(90 kilometers per hour)
and you want a quick conversion
to mph (miles per hour)
simply multiply 6 x 90
in your head and you
are going approximately
54 miles per hour.
•
And that's close enough for
everyday purposes.

1 kilometer per hour (km/h) is equal to .6214 miles per hour

Smaller from a  kilometer

1 meter
(1 m)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1000 m) being the length of
1 kilometer, is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur"

 Smaller Measurement from a  meter

1 centimeter
(1 cm)

Remember, centi is the prefix meaning
1 one hundredth of the base unit meter.
So, 1 one hundredth of a meter (0.01 m)
is simply written 1 cm

Smaller Measurement from a  centimeter


1 millimeter
(1 mm)

Remember, milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the
base unit meter
being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm
