This provides a summary of most of the units of measurement to be found in use around the world today (and a few of historical interest), together with the appropriate conversion factors needed to change them into a 'standard' unit of the S I.
The units may be found either by looking under the category in which they are used [such as length, mass, density, energy etc.], or else by picking one unit from an alphabetically ordered list of units. There are NO units of currency.There is an outline of the S I; a list of its basic defining standards and also some of its derived units; then another list of all the S I prefixes and some notes on conventions of usage.There is a short historical note on measures generally; descriptions of the Metric system, the U K (Imperial) system with a statement on the implementation of 'metrication' in the U K, and the U S system.Finally there is a list of other sources concerned with the topic of measures and units (including other Web sites) and also some notes about this document.
