Metric to U.S. Conversions

While the US continues to use imperial values for measuring area and volume the rest of the world has moved on and adopted the metric system of measurement.

Here is a quick table to help you with your conversions:


Metric Measure                        Multiplied By                          Equals U.S. Measure          
Length
millimeter x 0.0394 = inches
centimeter x 0.3937 = inches
meters x 3.2808 = feet
meters x 1.0936 = yards
kilometers x 0.6214 = miles
Area
sq. cm. x 0.155 = sq. inches
sq. meters x 1.1960 = sq. yards
sq. meters x 0.3861 = sq. miles
hectares x 2.4710 = acres
Weight
grams x 0.0353 = ounces
kilograms x 2.2046 = pounds
tonnes x 1.1 = short tons
Volume
milliliters x 0.0338 = fluid ounces
liters x 2.1134 = pints
liters x 1.0567 = quarts
liters x 0.2642 = gallons
cu. meters x 35.3145 = cubic feet
cu. meters x 1.3079 = cubic yards
Temperature
centigrade x 1.8(+32) = fahrenheit
temperature temperature

To calculate the approximate U.S. measure equivalent to a known metric measure, simply multiply the metric quantity by the conversion factor in the center column. Example: 38 kilograms = 84 pounds, approximately (38 x 2.2046 = 83.78).
