Convert between thousands of common (and obscure) units of measurement drawn from a huge variety of different unit systems, including the US customary system, the metric SI system and many historical systems used throughout the world. As an added bonus, view comparisons to everyday unit scales, observe corresponding values when converted to related physical quantities, find physical quantities to which given units belong and get a feel for unit scales using graphical order of magnitude charts.


Calculate an exact unit conversion and obtain information about the physical quantities the unit measures, other related units and the unit system or systems to which the unit belongs.
