# Units of Measurement

What is Units of Measurement: Describing Any Physical Amount In A Number Is Called Measurement. And The Medium By Which It Is Measured Is Called Unit. When We Use Some Other Predetermined Quantity To Measure Something, Then That Predetermined Quantity Is Called The Unit For That Object. For Example, 1 Kg Of Rice, We Are Comparing The Weight Of Rice With 1 Kg Where Kilogram Is A Unit. Similarly, The Unit Of Mass Is Kilogram, The Unit Of Time Is Second, The Unit Of Length Is Meter And The Unit Of Length Is Inch.

Definition Of Measurement: – The Measurement Of Any Object By Which Its Length, Width, Thickness, Height, Weight And Diameter Etc. Is Known, Is Called Measurement.

Units Of  Measurement:- There Are Two Units Of Measurement-

• Metric System
• British System

Metric System:-  This System Is Popular In Most Of The Countries Of The World, This System Has Been Accepted On The Basis Of India And International Standard Organization ISO, It Is Called CGS. Also Called System. With This Measurement Is Measured In Centimeters, Weight In Grams And Time In Seconds. According To IS, The Basic Unit Of Measurement Is The Meter.

British System: –  This System Is Also Called Foot, Pound And Second (FPS) System. This System Was Popular When The British Standards Association Was Established In 1855, But Since Then The Metric System Has Come. So The British Standards Association Has Also Adopted The Metric System.  That Is Why Today The Matriculation System Is Running In Most Of The Countries Of The World.
