A Dictionary of Units of Measurement

A Dictionary of Units of Measurement

This website is great for unit conversions. Americans probably use a greater variety of units of measurement than anyone else in the world. Caught in a slow-moving transition from customary to metric units, we employ a fascinating and sometimes frustrating mixture of units in talking about the same things. This site is a one-stop shop in terms of unit conversion and equivalences. Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, this resource is great for any science classroom.
