Unit Conversions

I am used to using deciliters, liters, and grams. In Norway we follow the metric system. 100 ml is 1 dl which is again 0.1 l.  100 grams is 0.1 kilogram.  But to make things easier I have come up with this page so that if you have any questions that you can come her.  When I am in USA or any other country I use ounces and pounds.  Some good pages to use to convert is also:
