    The Metric System of Measurement

    category units and metric relationship
    length 10 millimetres = 1 centimetre
    10 centimetres = 1 decimetre
    10 decimetres = 1 metre
    10 metres = 1 decametre
    10 decametres = 1 hectometre
    10 hectometres = 1 kilometre
    1000 metres = 1 kilometre
     
    area 100 square mm = 1 square cm
    10 000 square cm = 1 square metre
    100 square metres = 1 are
    100 ares = 1 hectare
    10 000 square metres = 1 hectares
    100 hectares = 1 square kilometre
    1 000 000 square metres = 1 square kilometre
     
    Volume 1000 mm3 = 1 cm3
    1000 cm3 = 1 dm3
    1000 dm3 = 1 m3
    1 000 000 cm3 = 1 m3
     
    Capacity 10 millilitres = 1 centilitre
    10 centilitres = 1 decilitre
    10 decilitres = 1 litre
    1000 litres = 1 m3
     
    Mass 1000 grams = 1 kilogram
    1000 kilograms = 1 tonne
     
    Note: The difference between volume and capacity is there for historical reasons only
