It has to be converted from centimeters to meters, from grams to kilograms. There is no general rule such as "multiply everything by 100". For each compound unit, you need to convert cm$\rightarrow$m, g$\rightarrow$kg. For example the a [$g$ $cm^{-3}$] = a [$0.001$ $kg$ $0.01^{-3}$ $m^{-3}$] = 0.001 $\times$ a [$kg$ $m^{-3}$] Aluminum, for instance, has a ...

Answering directly to "I just wanted to understand how those units compare to each other": You can't convert directly between Sievert (Sv) and Becquerel, since they represent different physical quantities. Quoting the definition of Sievert from the Wikipedia: 1 Sv = 1 joule/kilogram – a biological effect. The sievert represents the equivalent ...

Well, in terms of dimensional analysis, which is what I think you ask for, I can give you this: $$1 \frac{V}{A} = 1 \frac{kg \cdot m^2}{A^2 \cdot s^3}$$ and $$1 \frac{T}{s} = 1 \frac{kg}{A \cdot s^3}$$ So we can see the conversion factor you need is $\frac{A}{m^2}$, since we can see that: $$ 1 \frac{T}{s} = 1 \frac{A}{m^2} \cdot \frac{V}{A} $$ ($A$ ...
