# Metric and Imperial Conversions

Some useful conversion (imperial, metric), length, area, capacity, weight, US measures and temperture factors.

## Length

 1 centimetre (cm) = 10 millimetres (mm) = 0.3937 inches (in) 1 decimetre (dm) = 10 cm = 3.937 inches 1 metre (m) = 10 dm = 100 cm = 1.0936 yards (yds) 1 kilometre (km) = 1000 m = 0.6214 miles (M) 1 inch (in) = 2.54 cm 1 foot (ft) =12 inch = 30.48 cm 1 yd = 3 ft = 36 in = 0.9144 m 1 mile =1760 yd = 1.6093 km

## Area

 1 sq cm = 100 sq mm = 0.155 sq in 1 sq metre = 10,000 sq cm = 1.196 sq yd 1 sq km = 100 hectares (ha) = 0.3861 sq mile 1 sq inch = 6.4516 sq cm 1 sq yard = 9 sq ft = 0.8361 sq m 1 sq mile = 640 acres = 2.59 sq km

## Capacity and volumes

 1 cubic centimetres (cc) = 0.0610 cu inch 1 cu metre = 1000 cu decimetres = 1.3080 cu yds 1 litre (l) = 1 cu dm = 1000 cc = 0.2200 imperial gallons (gal) 1 hectolitre (hl) = 100 litre (l) = 21.997 gallon (gall) 1 cubic inch = 16.387 cubic centimetres (cc) 1 cubic ft = 6.23 gall = 49.86 pints = 28.33 litre (l) 1 cu yard = 27 cu ft = 0.7646 cu m 1 imperial pint (pt) = 20 fluid ounces (fl oz) = 0.5683 litre (l) 1 gallon (gall) = 8 pt = 0.16 cu ft = 4.546 litre (l)

## Weight

 1 gram (g) = 1000 milligram (mg) = 0.0353 ounce (oz) 1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 gram (g) = 2.2046 pounds (lb) 1 tonne (t) = 1000 kilogram (kg) = 0.9842 ton 1 ounce (oz) = 437.5 grains = 28.35 gram (g) 1 pound (lb) = 16 ounce (oz) = 0.4536 kilogram (kg) 1 ton = 20 hundredweight (cwt) = 1.016 tonne

## US measures

 1 US dry pint = 33.6 cubic inches (cu in) = 0.5506 litre (l) 1 US liquid pint = 0.8327 imperial pint = 0.4732 litre (l) 1 US gallon = 0.8327 imperial gallon = 3.785 litre (l) 1 short hundredweight (cwt) = 100 pounds (lb) = 45.359 kilogram (kg) 1 short ton = 2000 pounds (lb) = 907.19 kilogram (kg)

## Temperature

 degree C degree F 0 32 5 41 20 68 30 86 40 104 50 122 60 140 70 158 80 176 90 194 100 212

Temperature conversion: (Celsius & Fahrenheit)

degrees C = (degrees F - 32) * 5/9

degrees F =(degree C * 9/5) + 32

Absolute temperature (refered to as Kelvin) is equivalent to °C+273.15°C or °F+459.67 °F. Degrees Kelvin, is written without the ° symbol, just K.
