### Remembering Unit Conversions

Posted:

**Fri Oct 19, 2018 9:15 pm**Hello, I'd like to share how I remember unit conversions:

King Henry Died Monday Drinking Chocolate Milk

KHDMDCM

Kilo Hecto Deka [Meters(liters/grams)] Deci Cent Mili

10^3 10^2 10^1 10^0 10^-1 10^-2 10^-3

The "Meters" section is also covers liters and grams. There is no prefix I know of for 10^0.

For example if you need to go from 450. mL to L, you count how many jumps it takes to get from Mili/Milk to Meters/liters/Monday. Which is three to the left, so you move the decimal in 450. ml three places to the left to get .450 L.

Hope this helps!

P.S. I am trying to add onto KHDMDCM so that it also includes Giga, Pico, and nano- if you happen to know please share!
