Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
