What is a Converter?

The conversion tool converts the metric quantity of one unit to another without changing the equivalent amount. This process of converting one unit to another is called unit conversion.

The metric system is the globally accepted measurement system. In this metric system, units are assigned to different measurable properties. A unit is a predefined reference for measurement comparisons; for example- A unit of length can be measured in Millimeters(mm), Decimeters (dm), Centimeters (cm), Meters (m), and Kilometers(km).

Why do we use a Converter?

In mathematics, chemistry or physics, we require a conversion factor that converts one unit of measurement to another. Various units of conversion are used to measure various parameters.

For example, we can calculate weight in kilograms, pounds or tons as per our requirement. This user-friendly conversion tool helps us to perform calculations faster, and it displays the result in a fraction of a second.

Here, we can understand the unit conversions with the help of a unit conversion table.
