How to measure length

The meter(m) is the standard SI Unit of length
1 Kilometer(KM)=1000cm 1 Meter=100 centimeters(CM) 1 Meter=1000 millimeter(MM) 

what are some examples of length

~a doorknob is about one meter from the floor.

~Three cans of soda have a mass of about 1 kilogram
~A paperclip has a mass of about one gram. ~A grain of salt has a mass of about one milligram. DEFINITION A KILOGRAM IS DEFINED AS THE MASS OF THE STANDARD KILOGRAM STORED IN FRANCE. 

How to measure temperature.

Temperature is the measure of the average kinetic energy of a substance.The Kelvin is the Si base unit of temperature.
K=`C+273 `C=K273` 

How to measure volume

Volume is the measure of the amount of space an object or substance occupies
Volume=length*width*height 1 milliliter(ml)=1 cm cubed 1 liter(l)=1000 ml MEASURE THE VOLUME OF LIQUIDS IN A GRADUALED CYLINDER MEASURE THE VOLUME OF AN IRREGULAR SOLID BY DISPLACEMENT
