I didn't use the template because I'm trying to understand a concept which applies to many problems rather than just one. Many times in exercises I am assigned, I am asked to convert from one unit of measurement to the other. For the most part it's easy to understand, but what confuses me is when I'm asked to convert between units that are unknown to me. For example, one of my questions asked me how many micrometers are in a kilometer. I know how many centimeters make up a meter and how many meters make up a kilometer, but how am I supposed to figure how many micrometers make up a centimeter or meter without having to look it up outside the confines of my book? Is there some method I have to develop on my own to discover things like this or am I supposed to look to secondary sources to find the information I need?
