## Physics / Measurement of Basic Elements

### Physics / Measurement of Basic Elements

In everyday life, measurements are often necessary.
For instance,

• the amount of cloth required for a dress,
• the weight of grocery and vegetables to be bought,
• the amount of sugar needed for a cup of tea or amount of petrol to fill in a car are all measured.

Every measurement involves a number and a unit.
e.g. Assume that your classroom measures 10 meters in length. The number here is 10 and the unit is meter.

• SI units, fundamental and derived units.
• Understand the concepts of length, area and volume.
• Length refers to the distance between any two points or places.
• The amount of surface occupied by an object or a place is called its area.
• The space occupied by an object is called its volume
• Learn to measure these physical quantities.
