Please suggest me the conversion chart.
Im confused of conversions especially m to km,mm to cm ... so on only in areas and volume($\displaystyle dm^3$)
Is there any easy way to keep in mind?
Thank you.

Hi devi,

Can you site a particular problem you are having? Conversions from m to km to mm to cm seems rather trivial.

As masters said converting in linear units is simple enough.

When converting areas you square the difference: 1cm = 10mm normally
1cm^2 = 1cm x 1cm = 10mm x 10mm = 100mm^2

For volumes cube the difference

1cm^3 = 1cm x 1cm x 1cm = 10mm x 10mm x10mm = 1000mm
