Converting Units With Conversion Factors

This video focuses on converting units of measurement with conversion factors. It explains how to convert units of length, time, capacity, volume, area, mass, speed / velocity, and density which is useful for students taking chemistry, math, or physics. This tutorial contains plenty of examples and practice problems.

Lmao I’ve been crying for four hours straight and my head is throbbing of frustration. Looked at 3:20 minutes of this video and learned the whole thing. Moral of the story, YouTube nerds are superior over certified teachers.

well worth spending 20 mins of my time here rather than 45 mins on math class

When I become a doctor, I'll tell myself, if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be here. Thank you.

My chemistry class started these conversions yesterday. My teacher really didn’t explain how to do them, she just told us what numbers go where & not why. When I looked at my homework just a few minutes ago, I started crying out of frustration. Your video really helped me understand where to put the values and why. I finished my homework within ten minutes. :) Thank you!!

Exactly 5 minutes into this video and I understood an entire chemistry lecture better than a professor could teach me.

thank you so much!! my Chem class started with this section and it was so discouraging, I thought maybe my major was too hard for me and I should reconsider... but I just sat through and did all these problems with you, and you helped more than my professor ever did! thank you and keep being a light in the world :) *also sidenote- very pleasant voice!

Didn't hear anything when my lecturer introduced this chapter, now am a master with conversion units all thanks to you keep up the good work, and when I become a biologist, I'll spread the word that if it wasn't for I would've probably changed the degree in my first year

i like how im spending only 20 mins on studying this while in school we spend 1hr
i also understood everything because he explains it well and my math teacher goes like " im a rapper " haha lel

I was so confused up until the 10 minute mark. But I just finished the video and I understand it know. I wish there were
more examples.

Wow thank you so much. My chemistry teacher just wrote the shit on the board, didn't even explain then expected us to just get it just like that. Everyone was confused. She also has a strong accent so it's extremely hard to understand her too.

To convert m/s for km/h i've find easier simply multiply the value of m/s per 3,6. I searched for that because i've find hard to understand your explanation (I'm not a native speaker).

Thank God this was made a Video, i would have failed MCAS if it wasn't for this video, since i couldn't get the hang of conversion factors and how to convert the metric system and Volume.

I can understand this more than my chemistry teacher haha. He's so advanced that I can't reach what he's teaching. Thank you for this vid! I can cope up with our lessons~

11:42 dont mind me just making a timestamp.
itsugo freecs
itsugo freecs:
Guys i have an idea... when converting big to small you neeed to add those zero like 1km = 1000m and 1m = 100cm. So you have 5 zero. In the example of 0.028 in the vid, he moved the point from 0.028 to the right five times like this 2800cm then u have the ryt answer
Edit: i got those zeroes from 1000 and 100
Pls like if this helps thanks!

Dave Brian Parami
Dave Brian Parami:
Can anyone explaine I'm nood at every math 5.6 g/ml to kg m*3
g is smaller than kg so means the answer supposed to get smaller
ALSO THE ML IS SMALLER THAN m*3 why the answer get bigger 5.6 to 5,600 on 16:36?
Taiwo Reuben
Taiwo Reuben:
Man, where have you been all my life? Finally I found someone who could explain to me, in an easy and concise manner, how to do conversions. Man I was struggling with this, but not any more. Thanks to this video I finally can say I know how to do conversions. Thank you very much for posting this extremely helpful video. I am grateful. (Liked and subscribed)

lmao i answered this the way that my teacher thought me and the answer is just the same it's just that your way is easier than what my teacher thought bc mAN IT'S SO COMPLICATED IN HIS WAY.

An absolute life saver. I have so much more confidence in my math abilities after watching just half of this video. So excited to keep learning and building a new foundation for chemistry off of these concepts.

Dayna Rhodehouse:
Like the last comment. I just started Chemistry and was stuck on how to show the work on these problems the work was no help. I spent hours over the last two days looking for examples or help on how to show the work. I knew the answer but didn't know how to get there. All the calculators just gave the answer. Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooo much. I can finally go to bed and actually sleep. I will look up more of your videos for this class.
