UNIT #2(ERSI2N
For unit conversion, my advice is u need to polish your maths basic skills such as conversion
& standard form. But in physics,..by now u should already memorised the power of 10 for
prefix like Mea, !ia, kilo, micro & etc.
For example"
Mea # M # 10
$
kilo # k # 10
%

&ere some workin examples of unit 'onversion "
1. ( k # ( )k*
# ( )10
%
*
# ( x 10
%

) co+ k is the prefix for 10


%
, so ,ust substitute the value of k with 10

2. -ets chane the unit from km/hr to m/s
./00 kmhr

# ./00 km / hr

, lets chane the unit to m

1/( cm

# 1/( ) 1cm x 1cm x 1cm *, now we want to chane the unit cm to m,
Because of prefix ce!ti" (c) mea!s, c=10
