Systems of measurement were created to quantify natural phenomena and to allow us to deal more effectively with everyday life, and have been used since the earliest times. From those early measurements, many other units have been developed, each designed for a particular purpose. This book covers units used both in everyday life and in scientific subjects, complete with explanations, conversion equations and conversion tables.
