Both a number and a unit of defined size is required to describe physical quantity. 3 FUNDAMENTAL UNITS (Systeme International) All other units are derived from this system.

FYI.. GENERAL STRATEGY FOR UNIT CONVERSIONS x6 Unity factor…. x6 Rearrange to form: x6 Multiply numbers… x6 Cancel units… What you want What you’ve got Conversion Factors : Unity Factors - I Equivalent factors can be turned into conversion factors by dividing one side into the other! 1 mile = 5280 ft barb2right 1 in = 2.54 cm barb2right In converting one set of units to another, the one desired is on top in the conversion factor, and the “old” one is canceled out! Convert 29,141 feet into miles: Conversion Factors - II 1.61 km = 1 mi or 1 = 1.61 km mi Convert 5.519 miles in to kilometers: Conversions in the metric system are easy , as 1 km = 1000 m, 1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters(cm), and 1 cm = 10 millimeters(mm) Example: convert 8.89 km into m and cm!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
