MEASUREMENT

             

     FUNDAMENTALS

  •                    The standard unit of length is meter and it is denoted by m. 
  •                   The other units of length are Millimeter (mm). Centimeter (cm) and Decimeter (dcm) which are lower units of length. Whereas Decameter (dm), Hectometer (hm), Kilometer are higher units.

Value

\[\frac{1}{1000}\]

(0.001 m)

\[\frac{1}{100}m\]

(0.01 m)

\[\frac{1}{10}m\]

(0.1 m)

\[1\]

\[10\,\,m\]

\[100\,\,m\]

\[1000\,\,m\]

Thus, we have,

1 mm = 0.001m, 1 cm = 0.01m, 1 dm = 0.1

1 dam = 10 m, 1 hm = 100 m, 1 km = 1000 m

 

       Connection of different units of length in place value system

 

Measurement of Capacity

  •                   The standard unit of measuring capacity is litre and is denoted by \[l.\]
  •                   The other units of measurement of capacity are milliliter (ml), Cenilitre (cl), dacalitre (dal), Decilitre(d) , Hectolitre (hl) and Kololitre (kl)
  •                   Measurement units of capacity from level to higher level are shown as below:

Value

\[\frac{1}{1000}\]

(0.001 l)

\[\frac{1}{100}m\]

(0.01 l)

\[\frac{1}{10}m\]

(0.1 l)

\[1\]

\[10\,\,l\]

\[100\,\,l\]

\[1000\,\,l\]

  •                     Measurement units of capacity related to each other in place value system.

 

Measurement of Mass

  •                 The standard unit of mass is gram and is denoted by g. The other units of measurement of mass are milligram, centigram, decigram, hectogram and kilogram.
  •                  Units of mass from lower level to higher level are as follows:
