Metric question | Metric answer |
---|---|

Kilo | = 1000 |

Centi | = 100 |

Milli | = 0.001 or (1/1000) part of |

Micro | 0.000001 or one millionth part of |

gram | g |

microgram | mcg |

milligram | mg |

kilogram | kg |

L | Liter |

milliliter | mL |

Medications are ordered in grams or fractions, like micrograms or milligrams | Medications are ordered in grams or fractions, like micrograms or milligrams |

1 milligram is 1000 times smaller than 1 gram so 1000 milligram = 1 gram | 1 milligram is 1000 times smaller than 1 gram so 1000 milligram = 1 gram |

1 microgram is 1000 times smaller than a 1 milligram and 1 million times smaller than 1 gram | 1 microgram is 1000 times smaller than a 1 milligram and 1 million times smaller than 1 gram |

It takes 1 million mcg = 1 gram | It takes 1 million mcg = 1 gram |

Kilo grams are very large and are not used for measuring medication | Kilo grams are very large and are not used for measuring medication |

Kilograms are 1000 times larger than a gram ( 1 kg = 1000 g ) | Kilograms are 1000 times larger than a gram ( 1 kg = 1000 g ) |

Kilograms is used to denote weights of clients, upon med doses are based | Kilograms is used to denote weights of clients, upon med doses are based |

Volume = Liter | Volume = Liter |

1000 mL = 1 Liter | 1000 mL = 1 Liter |

1 mL = 0.001 L | 1 mL = 0.001 L |

cc = cubic centimeters | cc = cubic centimeters |

cc & milli Liters are same | cc & milli Liters are same |

1 L = 1000 mL | 1 L = 1000 mL |

1 kilogram = 1000 grams | 1 kilogram = 1000 gram |

1 gram = 1000 milligrams | 1 gram = 1000 milligrams |

1 milligram = 1000 micrograms | 1 milligram = 1000 micrograms |

1 liter = 1000 milliliters (mL) | 1 liter = 1000 milliliters (mL) |

1 quart = 1000 mL | 1 quart = 1000 mL |

1 pint = 500 mL | 1 pint = 500 mL |

metric system is based on the decimal system | metric system is based on the decimal system |

metric conversions can be made by dividing or multiplying by 1000 | metric conversions can be made by dividing or multiplying by 1000 |

1 kg = 1000 grams | 1 kg = 1000 grams |

1 gram = 1000 mg | 1 gram = 1000 mg |

1 mg = 1000 mcg | 1 mg = 1000 mcg |

1 Liter = 1000 mL | 1 Liter = 1000 mL |

to convert smaller to larger (divide-move decimal 3 left ) example: 100 mL = .100 L or 0.1 L | to convert smaller to larger (divide-move decimal 3 left ) example: 100 mL = .100 L or 0.1 L |

100 mL = ? Liters | 0.1 Liters |

50 mg = ? g | 0.05 g |

0.75 grams = ? milligrams | 750 mg |

0.04 kg = ? grams | 40 grams |

micrograms = grams...[ smaller < Larger 3 x] | micrograms = grams...[ smaller < Larger 3 x] |

grams = mcg...[ Larger > smaller 3 x] | grams = mcg...[ Larger > smaller 3 x] |

1 kg = 1000 grams | 1 kg = 1000 grams |

1 gram = 1000 mg | 1 gram = 1000 mg |

1 mg = 1000 mcg | 1 mg = 1000 mcg |

1 Liter = 1000 mL | 1 Liter = 1000 mL |

3 units of measurement in the metric system | grams, liter, meters |

950 mcg = ? mg | 0.95 mg = |

58.5 L = ? mL | 58500 mL |

130 mL = ? L | 0.130 L |

276 g = ? mg | 276000 mg |

550 mL = ? L | 0.550 L |
