## Unit Conversions Measurements

#### Unit Conversions (Measurements)

Measurement is a unit of size or extent. In our everyday life, we encounter different kinds of measurement,
be it on the distance we travel every day, our weight or the volume of liquids we drink. The fact is,
we are surrounded with measurements.

Here's a list of common measurements and their conversions.

#### Units of Length

10 millimeters (mm) = 1 centimeter (cm)

10 centimeters (cm) = 1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeter (mm)

10 decimeters (dm) = 1 meter (m) = 1000 millimeters (mm)

10 meters (m) = 1 dekameter (dam)

10 dekameters (dam) = 1 hectometer (hm) = 100 meters

10 hectometers (hm) = 1 kilometer (km) = 1000 meters

12 inches (in) = 1 foot (ft)

3 feet (ft) = 1 yard (yd)

3.28 feet (ft) = 1 meter (m)

1.6 kilometers (km) = 1 mile

1 inch = 2.54 cm

#### Examples:

1.    3 miles = km

3 miles *(1.6 km/1mile)

3 miles = 4.8 kms

2.    100 cm = m

100 cm *(1m/100 cm)

100 cm = 1 m

3.    25 mm = m

25mm *(1 m/1000 mm)

25 mm = 0.025 m

4.    1 m = dam

1m *(1 dam/10 m)

1m = 0.1 dam

5.   4ft = yd

4 ft *(1 yd/3 ft)

4 ft = 1.3 yd

6.   28 in = ft

28 in *(1 ft/12 in)

28 in = 2.3 ft

7.    23 km = cm

23 km *(100 cm/1 m) *(1000 m/1 km)

23 km = 2300000 cm

8.    45 m = ft

45 m *(1 ft/12 in) *(1 in/2.54 cm) *(100 cm/1 m)

45 m = 147.64 ft

9.    8 miles = m

8 miles *(1.6 km/1 mile) *(1000 m/1 km)

8 miles = 12800 m

10.    45 m = cm

45 m *(100 cm/1 m)

45 m = 4500 cm
