Pounds per Square Inch | psi or lb/in2 | 14.69 |

**What is the importance of conversion of units in measurements?**

Importance of Mathematical Conversions In order to have accuracy and avoid confusion in measurement, we need to convert one unit to another. For instance, we do not measure the length of a pencil in kilometres. In such a case, one has to convert kilometre (km) to centimetre (cm).

**When converting units from large to small we should?**

To convert from a larger unit to a smaller one, multiply. To convert from a smaller unit to a larger one, divide.

### Why pressure is measured in kg cm2?

In SI units, the unit is converted to the SI derived unit pascal (Pa), which is defined as one newton per square metre (N/m2). A newton is equal to 1 kg⋅m/s2, and a kilogram-force is 9.80665 N, meaning that 1 kgf/cm2 equals 98.0665 kilopascals (kPa)….

Kilogram-force per square centimetre | |

FPS units | 14.22334 psi |

**What are the basic metric conversions?**

The basic metric units are meters (for length), grams (for mass or weight), and liters (for volume). And the different units convert into one another rather nicely, with one milliliter equalling one cubic centimeter (the “cc” of medical shows on television) and one gram being the weight of one cc of water.

**How do you convert units easily?**

Summary: You can convert units easily and accurately with one simple rule: just multiply the old measurement by a carefully chosen form of the number 1.

## How do you explain metric conversions?

To convert from one unit to another within the metric system usually means moving a decimal point. If you can remember what the prefixes mean, you can convert within the metric system relatively easily by simply multiplying or dividing the number by the value of the prefix.

**Which unit of measurement is the largest?**

Answer and Explanation: Kilometers are the longest unit of metric measurement. The abbreviation for kilometers is ‘km”. Like miles, kilometers are used to measure long…
