Talking facts about measurement will inpsire you to recognise a number to characteristic of an object. Measurement often used to compare objects or events. Measurement totally limitles, it is limited by the context and discipline. Measurment became one of the most important factor to assume the object and it is a cornerstone of trad, science, technology, quantitative research in any fields of disciplines. For instance, in economics, the measurment uses a number of currency commonly applied.

## Facts about Measurement 1: Methodology

The kinds of measurements can be categorised by type, magnitude, unit and uncertainty.

### Facts about Measurement 2: Standardisation of Measurement Units

The international standardisation system categorised seven substantial units, namely, kilogram, metre, candela, second, ampere, kelvin and mole.

## Facts about Measurement 3: Standard

Not only government but also private sector generally defined standardisation of measurement. In 1875 General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) established, the metre was redefined in 1983. There are a great number of institutions that concern on measurement, such as in the US by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in the UK through National Physical Laboratory, in Australia by the National Measurement Institute, etc.

### Facts about Measurement 4: Metric System

This system is a decimal system of measurement based on its unit for length, the metre and the kilogram. In 1960s, the International System of Units recognised metric system.

## Facts about Measurement 5: International System of Units

The International System (SI) of Units is a modern and updated from metric system. The SI developed in 1960 from the metre-kilogram-second system rather than the centimetre-gram-second system. The SI also recognised the newly name of measurement such as ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela.

### Facts about Measurement 6: Converting

The SI is flexible enough to convert to different prefix. for example, to convert from metre to kilometre it is only to multiply the number of metres by 1,000.

## Facts about Measurement 7: Several Special Names

There are some special units of measurement such as quintal (i.g. 100 kilograms) metric tonne (i.g. 1,000 kilogram), decade (i.g. 10 years), century (i.g. 100 years), and millennium (1,000 years).

Time is a unique measurement. It is noted by number and named periods such as hours, days, weeks, months, and years. In terms the Australian building trades adopted the metric system in 1966 and the unit used for measurement of length are metres (m) and millimetres (mm). for example, the length two and a half metres is ususally recorded as 2,500 mm or 2.5 m.

## Facts about Measurement 9: Length and Mass

The length or short distance is measured by ruler as a tool used in. Commonly the length of ruler no more than 2 metres. In terms, mass refers to the intrinsic property of all materials objects to resist changes in their momentum. The imperial units of mass include the ounce, pound, and ton.
