Measurement

Measurement means determining the size, length, distance, height etc. of objects, place etc. The kilometre, metre, centimetre, inches and foot are the units of distance and length. While kilometre and metre are used for long and average distances, and length, centimetre, inches and foot are used to measure short distances.

Length is the longer dimension of an object, while breadth is the dimension from side to side.

Let's see the picture given below: Look at the following:

 kilometer =  meters

 meter =  centimeters.

Therefore,

 meters = two  centimeters

 meters = three  centimeters and the process goes. on.

Again,

 foot =  inches.

Therefore,

 feet = two  inches =  inches.

 feet = three  inches =  inches.

Points to remember,

Short forms

Kilometre = [km],

Metre = [m],

Centimetre = [cm]

•          Example:

How many kilometres are there in one 1000 metres?

(a) 4                                                                  (b) 1

(c) 3                                                                  (d) 5

(e) None of these

Explanation: (b) is correct because  km = one  metres.

Note:

[km] > [m] > [cm]

$Foot>Inch>Cm$
