Measurement is the act of determining an object's quantifiable properties. These properties may include such things as mass, volume, length, width, temperature, viscosity, electrical charge, and others. Standard units of measurement are called SI units and are typically staggered in powers of 10 (e.g. a kilogram is a 1000 grams; a meter is a hundred centimeters).
