How many grams in 1 teaspoon

It's really difficult to find a converter for grams and teaspoons because they're two different types of measurements -- one is mass and one is volume. If you don't need to be too specific, you can get a general idea of how grams compare to teaspoons (and other units as well) by using this metric conversion calculator from our Southern Food Expert.

What is the fomular to calculate cubic meters to a ton

Cubic meter is a unit of volume. Ton is a unit of mass (or weight). The conversion depends on the density of whatever you're measuring.

It also depends on what you mean by "ton."

A cubic meter of water weighs one metric ton. A cubic meter of gold weighs nearly twenty metric tons.

How many liters in a metric ton

Liters are a volume measure and tons measure mass. You can't directly convert one to the other. You can calculate the mass of a volume of something, but you need more information about the specific material.

8 cm to gm

If you are referring to the metric units system, cm(centmeter) is the units used in measurement of length and gm(gram) is the unit measurement for mass/weight. You cannot convert cm to gm because they are different entities & properties.

Hope it helps.

What is metric system?

Metric system is an easier to use and understand measuring system for all like distances and weights and volumes. 1 milimeter x 10 = 1 Centimeter 1 centimeter x 10 = 1 decimeter 1 decimeter = 1 meter 1000 meters = 1 kilometer (and 1.6 kilometer = 1 mile of the older system)
compare it to the older system 1 inch x 12 = 1 foot 3 feet = 1 yard 220 yards = 1 furlong 8 furlong = 1 mile (some sense of humour where you would go mad multiplying these numbers).
similarly in volumes and weights the metric is in terms of 10s while the older system was as maddening as the distances. But Americans still prefer the mile and pounds system. They are entitled to their humour or humor.

Conversion of 1000lites to metric ton

I believe you meant liters instead of lites. However, liters is a measure of volume and a metric ton is a measure of weight. These cannot be converted with this information alone.
However, if you meant a metric ton of water then 1Liter = 1Kilogram 1000Kilograms = 1 Metric Ton.
I hope that helps.

Conversion of mu into iu

Hi, ibmpl,

I think I know what you are referring to! Sorry for the delay in responding to your question. Apparently, by mu you mean millimicron. Perhaps because of a limitiation in the formula editor for posting your message, you were not able to write the Greek symbol for micron.dubblea_8.jpg The "m" in front of the above symbol represents one-millionth of a micron, that is, 10^-6 micron.

The symbol IU is much easier to write in this forum, and means "International Unit." Unfortunately, the IU is not really a standardized international unit that can apply to any substance equally. It is not a part of the SI system (metric system of units), that is based on units of ten from the exceeding small to the exceedingly large, and which is firmly standardized across all chemical substances.

For example, 1 IU means something different depending on the substance. Here is a revealing list of well known substances and their different definitions for 1 IU:

  • 1 IU for Insulin = 45.5 micrograms pure crystalline insulin.
  • 1 IU for Vitamin A = 0.3 microgram of retinol or 0.6 microgram beta-carotene.
  • 1 IU for Vitamin C = 50 micrograms of L-ascorbic acid.
  • 1 IU for Vitamin D = 0.025 microgram cholecalciferol.
  • 1 IU for Vitamin E = 0.667 microgram d-alpha-tocopherol.
The reason for this range of values for the IU is its being based on a measured biological effect for each of these substances. That is, 1 IU has a different magnitude of physiological effect depending on the substance (often a drug, hormone, vitamin, or medicine).

Now, what I am going to say might be a disappointment to you: You cannot relate the millimicron to the IU no matter what substance you are describing. The reason is they are in different categories of measure. The millimicron is a metric system of LENGTH. The IU is based on measures of MASS. To convert one to the other they need to be in the same category of measure, length to length, or mass to mass. One COULD convert quantity of length to a quantity of mass, but only if you first convert either length to mass, or mass to length; but that would require the very inconvenient use of additional data, such as surface area and density of the substance of interest - a consequence too impractical for common use.

Metric instead of pounds

You didn't mention brand name or model number, so not sure about your specific case. However, on my scale, there is a switch or button near the battery compartment. It allows you to change the measurement between stones, pounds and kilograms.
