Hi everyone! May anyone please tell me how to tell how many zeroe's are required in your answer when moving the decimal points in converting metric units? Thank you very much! Please help soon, if possible, as I

have a big test coming up!

For example, 5.17 kl= 51,700 Liters. Or is it 5,170? Please explain why!

It goes like this :

Kl Hl Decal L Decil Cl ml

To convert from Kl to L you multilply by 1000 (high to low multiply)

So, 5.17 * 1000 = 5170 L
