Measurement and Unit Conversions
There are 2 common measurement systems: the metric system and the U.S. system. In order for scientists and engineers from different parts of the world to communicate, people have to be able to convert measurements. We have recently been measuring different objects using both systems and converting measurements from one system to another. Although both systems have the same time units, the measurements for distance and volume are completely different. Thankfully, we are able to use conversion factors to convert any measurement from any system into another system of measurements.
