3. 3. 1 Liter = 1000 Milliliters 1 Kilogram = 1000 gram 1 Gram = 1000 Milligrams 1 Milligram = 1000 Micrograms
4. 4. Cont.. To convert larger units to smaller the larger is multiplied: -Kilograms (kg) to grams (g) = kg x 1,000 -Grams to milligrams (mg) = g x 1,000 -Milligrams to micrograms (mic) = mg x 1,000 -Liters (L) to milliliters (ml) = L x 1,000
5. 5. Cont.. To convert smaller units to larger the smaller is divided: -Milligrams to grams = mg÷1,000 -Micrograms to milligrams = mic÷1,000 -Milliliters to liters = ml÷1000
