The hospital staff supplied this information: Baby A: 3348 g Baby B: 3774 g However, these weights did not convey anything meaningful to the family members. ” everyone wanted to know. ” The conversion of a measurement from one unit to another is a fact of life in science and medicine, made necessary by the existence of two systems of measurement (English and metric) and by the existence of multiple units within each system. Scientists must be able to translate milliliters into liters, inches into centimeters, pounds into kilograms, and so forth.

For instance, the prefix milli- means the same thing regardless of what unit we attach it to, so one meter equals 1000 millimeters, one liter equals 1000 milliliters, and one gram equals 1000 milligrams. These prefixes are so convenient that scientists occasionally use them for nonmetric units. For example, 1000 years is sometimes called a kiloyear. 9 Using the definition of a derived unit The potential of a battery is measured using a unit called a volt. How is a millivolt related to a volt? SOLUTION The prefix milli- means 1/1000 of the base unit, so a millivolt is 1/1000 of a volt.
