EQUIVALENCES

Mass

100 grams (g) = 1 kilogram (kg)

1000 kg (kg) = 1 tonne

 

Capacity

1000 milliletres (ml) = 1 litre (l)

100 centilitres (cl) = 1 litre (l)

 

Length

1000 millimetres (mm) = 1 metre (m)

1000 metres (m) = 1 kilometre (km)

10 millimetres (mm) = 1 centimetre (cm)

100 centimetres (cm) = 1 metre (m)

Time

60 seconds = 1 minute

60 minutes = 1 hour

24 hours = 1 day

365 days = 1 year
