Length is the measurement to determine how long or short a thing is.
There are various types of equipment and units to measure length.
Non Standard unit: Non-standard units are the units which are not frequently used as they bound to change from time to time and from person to person. E.g. if we use a hand as a unit to measure the distance then it is bound to change from person to person as the length of a person's hand will be different from another person.
Standard unit: Units which are widely accepted because they remain same over time and from person to person. E.g. centimeter, meter, kilometer inches, foot etc
|100 centimeter||1 meter|
|1000 meter||1 kilometer|
|10 centimeter||1 decimeter|
|1000 millimeter||1 meter|
