I need to convert a moment of intertia value given in g*cm^2 to kg*m^2, and was hoping someone could give me a run down of the method behind these kind of conversions. Do I simply assume that since g to kg is a factor 0.001 and cm to m is 0.01, that I can apply a factor of 0.00001 to my initial value? I feel that that method would be fine for say, g*cm to kg*cm, but I'm not sure how to account for the squared dimension. Any help/explanation would be appreciated. Thanks.
