Conversion of Units of Length
Suppose the residential plots are being measured in your colony.
Some people measure the residential plots in square yards.
And some people measure the plots in square meters.
So different units can be used to measure the same quantity i.e. area in our case.
To understand the exact price of plots in specific area unit, conversion of units is required.
Letâ€™s understand step by step procedure of conversion of unit.
Let us take a square of side
$1$
cm. We know that
$1$
cm =
$10$
mm
So the area of this square is equal to the area of
$100$
squares each with side length
$1$
mm.
Further, we write as
Similarly we can convert meter in centimeter as
Let us take another example.
Suppose we are given the above conversion
We know that
$1$
m is equal to
$100$
cm
Let us multiply both sides by same quantity
On further simplification, we get
Now, we multiply
$5$
to both the sides as
Similarly, we can convert the other units as per our requirements.
Letâ€™s perform conversion operation on few other units.
Suppose now we need to convert
$1000cm_{2}$
to
$m_{2}$
We know that
$1$
m is equal to
$100$
cm
Multiplying both the sides by same quantity and dividing by 10, we get
Again let us say we are given to convert
$feet_{2}$
into
$yards_{2}$
.
We know that
$1$
feet is equal to
$0.333333$
yard
Multiplying both sides by same quantity, we get
$1$
square feet is equal to
$0.11111$
square yard
Revision
Units are the parameters which are used to measure the physical quantities.
we may convert them among them when and where required.
