In different parts of the world, different systems of measurement are used. Typically the SI system is used in the USA and the metric system is used in Europe. People worldwide make conversions between these units almost daily, for example converting a length measured in inches into centimeters. A site that lets you easily perform these conversions is Conversion Tool.

convert between different units

Conversion Tool is a wonderful free to use website that does exactly what its name suggests: it performs unit conversions. Three types of measurements are supported: length, temperature, and weight.

Length units include inches, feet, meters, miles, centimeters, and kilometers; temperature units include Fahrenheit and Celsius; weight units include grams, kilograms, milligrams, ounces, pounds, and stone. You select a measurement from the virtual dial and then select your “˜to’ and “˜from’ units. These units can belong to different measurement systems or the same; this gives you the most conversion options. With your units selected, type in any quantity in either text box – left or right – and the other one will automatically get updated with the corresponding value.

    Only three nations out of 203 have not officially adopted the International System of Units as their primary or sole system of measurement: Burma, Liberia, and the United States of America.[5]
    The United States is the only industrialised country in the world that does not use the metric system as its predominant system of measurement.[6]
