**Introduction**

Comparing an unknown quantity to one already known is the measurement process. A numerical value with specific units is the measurement’s output. Here, you can find measure conversion tables to make it simple to change measurements between different units. Understanding unit conversion will be made more accessible by various metric conversion charts.
