### Objective of Measurement:

Measurement is the most important aspect of our life. We use measurement in science, engineering, business trading, personal life, education, and more other fields. As technology is growing day by day so we need a highly accurate and easy convenient global measuring system in each and every field. It is essential to use standard measurement in every field that everyone to be sure that they not get cheated.

### History of measurement:

In history for measurement people used the human body as a tool. For measuring length used forearm, hand, foot & finger as a unit. Same way for measuring weight oldest method for measuring the length is "Cubit", It is a length of the arm (from fingertip to the elbow). The foot, finger is a subdivided shorter unit of a length. This type of measurement is not accurate cause different in size of the arm & finger for different people & some of the countries still using it. In history, there were lots of measuring systems developed but mostly used imperial, the metric system of measurement. We use these systems for measure distances, volume, mass & weight, speed, area etc. Due to this a major problem everyone is facing while doing trading between the countries. A huge improvement in civilization, It necessary to improve measuring standards. Nowadays International Standard (SI) units are used as a global measurement system.
