# Metric

Metric questionMetric 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]
Liters and Grams , often used in meds Liters and Grams , often used in meds
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
fractional parts are expressd in decimals fractional parts are expressd in decimals
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

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
