the metric system is another system of measurement used to describe an objects capacity


 In the metric system, each of the common kinds of measure -- length, weight, capacity -- has one basic unit of measure.  To measure smaller amounts, divide the basic unit into parts of ten, a hundred, or a thousand, and so on.  To measure larger amounts, multiply the basic unit by ten, a hundred, or a thousand, and so on.   Length:1 kilometer (km) = 1000 meters (m) 1 centimeter (cm) = .01 meter (m) 1 millimeter (mm) = .001 meter (m)Weight:1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 grams (g) 1 milligram (mg) = .001 gram (g)Capacity:1 milliliter = .001 liter (l)
