## Conversion of Lengths

If you need to collect data that involves length measurements then these conversion of lengths factors will be helpful: 1 centimeter = .394 inches 1 meter = 39.4 inches 1 meter = 3.28 feet 1 kilometer = .621 miles You may need to use length measurements in your fuel cell car science fair projects.

## Important subdivisions of the SI units…

It is important to understand the prefixes used to describe subdivisions of SI units. For example, pico- means 10^-12 power, nano- means 10^-9 power, micro- means 10^-6 power, milli- means 10^-3 power and centi-means 10^-2 power. Keep these prefixes in mind when creating your own energy science fair projects.

## Data Collection – Important Multiples of SI Units

Multiples of SI units are very important to understand when you are doing data collection that have large measurements. Some of the most common prefixes for multiples of SI units include: hecto- which is 10^2 power, kilo- which is 10^3 power, mega- which is 10^6 power, giga- which is 10^9 power and tera- which is […]

## International System of Units for Measuring Data

In order to make the understanding of data universal the International System was developed. This system standardized measurements for nearly everything that scientists are interested in measuring. Here are a couple of examples: meters, joules, seconds and watts. The International System of Units (SI, abbreviated from the French Système international (d’unités)) is the modern form […]
