W ,,,,,,., HM. ow “MW, ., s, ; Description: Explains method to convert units. then has several examples. the hardest being velocity mmnmmmmmtw ; Learning Goal: To learn how to change units of physical quantities. Z Quantities with physical dimensions like length or time must be measured with respect to a unit, a standard for quantifies with this dimension. For example, length can be measured in units of meters or feet, time in seconds or years, and velocity in meters 3 per second. 3 When solving problems in physics, it is necessary to use a consistent system of units such as the International System (abbreviated SI. for the French Systéme International) or the more cumbersome English system in the SI system, which is the preferred system in physics, mass is measured in kilograms. time in seconds, and length in meters. The necessity of using ‘ consistent units in a problem often forces you to convert some units from the given system into the system that you want to use .3 for the problem. ; The key to unit conversion is to multiply (or divide) by a ratio of different units that equals one. This works because multiplying ' any quantity by one doesn't change it To illustrate with length, if you know that 1 indx :- 2.54 rm. you can write 1 M 2.54 cm —. 1 inch ‘ V To convert inches to centimeters, you can multiply the number of inches times this fraction (since it equals one), cancel the inch unit in the denominator with the inch unit in the given length, and come up with a value for the length in centimeters To convert , centimeters to inches, you can divide by this ratio and cancel the centimeters. ; For all parts, notice that the units are already written after the answer box; don't try to write them in your answer also.
