## What is Unit Conversion?

Unit conversion is a process with multiple steps that involves multiplication or division by a numerical factor or, particularly a conversion factor. The process may also require selection of the correct number of significant digits, and rounding. Different units of conversion are used to measure different parameters.

In mathematics, we convert the units of measurement to understand better. For example, the length of a table is measured in inches whereas the length of a garden is measured in yards to make it simple to understand. We cannot measure the length of a finger in miles. To measure different quantities, units of measurements are required.

The conversion of units is required to solve various mathematical problems. For example, if the length of a rectangle is given is inches whereas the breadth is given in feet, then to determine the perimeter of the rectangle, we need to convert the units to make them uniform. Hence, it is necessary to learn the concept of unit conversion.

### Definition of Conversion of Units

By definition conversion of units means the conversion between different units and measurements of the same quantity done by the process of multiplication or division. In maths, conversion is the process of changing the value of one form to another for example inches to millimeters, or liters to gallons. Units are used for measuring length, measuring weight, measuring capacity, measuring temperature, and measuring speed.
