Kinetic Theory of Measure all matter is made up of tiny constantly moving particles
Systems of Measure metric/English= easier to convert- the units must agree
Fundamental Measurement Types length, mass, time
(Metric-English) mks-fps meter, kilo, seconds/ feet, pounds, seconds
Base Unit value of one- tells us what the measurement type is
Prefix (before base unit) multiple of 10- tells us how much of a base unit we have
