Conclusion[edit | edit source]

We have discussed the importance of units. We have learnt that there are many different units (units of time, units of length, units of mass) to describe the same thing, also there are different systems to define units, although we should stick to SI units in our calculations. We also know how to convert between different units. This is a skill we must acquire.
