## What is the order of metric units from smallest to largest?

kilo-< centi-< milli- < nano- d. Order the four metric prefixes from smallest to largest 2.

**What are the 7 main units of measurement?**

The seven SI base units, which are comprised of:

- Length – meter (m)
- Time – second (s)
- Amount of substance – mole (mole)
- Electric current – ampere (A)
- Temperature – kelvin (K)
- Luminous intensity – candela (cd)
- Mass – kilogram (kg)

### What units are used to measure size?

The most common units that we use to measure length in the metric system are the millimeter, centimeter, meter, and kilometer. The millimeter is the smallest commonly used unit in the metric system. The abbreviation for millimeters is mm (for example, 3 mm).

**Which is an example of a size unit?**

Yottabyte. 1,024 zettabytes. 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176. Then there is the hypothetical “Googolbyte” which would be a number of bytes equal to a 10 followed by 100 zeroes. Name. Example (s) of Size. Byte. A single letter, like “A.”. Kilobyte.

#### What are the different types of units of measurement?

Units of measurement as defined by metrology, the scientific study of measurement. ADDucation’s units of measurement list includes Metric SI units (International System of Units), Imperial units and United States Customary System (USCS). Where British, American, Canadian and Australian imperial units of volume differ we’ve included the differences.

**Which is the unit of measurement for data?**

Therefore, a byte, or eight bits, is used as the fundamental unit of measurement for data. A byte can store 28 or 256 different values, which is sufficient to represent standard ASCII characters, such as letters, numbers and symbols. Since most files contain thousands of bytes, file sizes are often measured in kilobytes.

## How are USC and imperial units of measurement different?

Imperial and US Customary Units of measurement for specific volume units (bushel, gallon, fluid ounce etc) are DIFFERENT. USC units of measurement for volumes are DIFFERENT for fluids and dry goods: Imperial units of measurement for specific volumes are the SAME for fluids and dry goods.
