Introduction to metric conversion formulas:

In mathematics, a metric conversion formula is one of the important topics. It is used for calculating purpose of an international decimalized system of measurement. In all over world, metric conversion formulas are the most common system for calculating different types of units. For personal, commercial and scientific purposes, this can be used widely. From the base units of conversions can be derived from larger and smaller units which may be standard set of prefixes in powers of ten.
