BS 1 Conversions
As we know, there are several different units of measurement in
the realm of science.
Each measurement has its place.
the more common measurements are those for time, distance,
weight, and mass.
Other, less common measurements are those
for frequency, energy, and force.
It is imperative that we communicate the units for the
measurements we take for two reasons.
The first reason is so
that we are all on the same page.
The second reason is so that
we use the measurements correctly when applying them to
Since there are so many different units out there, we must learn
how to convert between units.
We are all familiar with the metric system.
have universally agreed to follow a very similar system called the
S.I. system of measurements.
The S.I. stands for
The vast majority of units in this system are the same as the
(metres, litres, etc).
Therefore, we can use a
guide to help us with the coversions called a Metric Staircase.
