A cube with 3 feet on each side encloses 27 cubic feet of space because the area measurement is multiplied by three to take into account the height. A cubic measurement multiplies three separate linear measurements including the length, width and height. In this way, linear measurements become volume measurements.
Units of Conversion: Linear Measure Basic to the understanding of unit conversion is the understanding equivalence, the understanding of the multiplicative identity of 1, and how the two are related. For a review of these concepts, click on Review .
Linear Measurement. Linear measurement is typically the measurement skill that elementary mathematics students study first. For several years I have given college students an assignment to measure the perimeter of their dorm room or their kitchen at home using whatever measurement tools they had available.
In the Metric system, millimeters, centimeters, meters and kilometers, are used to measure linear measurements. The table below shows the conversion rates from one unit to the other. The standard unit of linear measure in the metric system is meters.

The tables of British linear measure, troy mass, and apothecaries mass are the same as the corresponding United States tables, except for the British spelling "drachm" in the table of apothecaries mass. The table of British avoirdupois mass is the same as the United States table up to 1 pound; above that point the table reads:
Table 1-1 shows the conversion factors for the common linear measurements. English Units In the English system, the most commonly used basic unit of linear measurement is the foot, a unit that amounts to slightly more than three-tenths of the international meter.
