If you are going to read all the measurement information on this page, then definitely read this article completely.

On the previous page we have shared information about **Ratio and Proportion**, so read this article also.

Let us today read and understand all the information about definition of measurement, quantities and units of measurement.

## What is Measurement

Science is based on measurement. The measurement of any quantity requires some standard measurements. This standard is called the unit of that quantity.

The magnitude of a quantity is determined by comparing it with its unit.

For example, when we say that the length of a **table** is 2 meters, it means that if two meter scales are placed end to end in a straight line, they will be equal to the length of the table.

Hence, the magnitude of the length of the table is.

**2 meters = 2 × 1 meter**

To have complete information about the magnitude of any such amount, knowledge of the following two things is necessary.

## Measurement Definition

Measurement is a technique in which the properties of an object are determined by comparing them to a standard quantity.

Also, measurement is the essential metric to express any quantity of objects, things and events.
