I was just studying for chemistry and encountered 'Conversion factors' and have a few questions for that. Hope i'm in the correct thread.
Anyway. In the textbook it gives the example of converting from 576 cm -> yards. They go from cm -> in -> ft. -> yd. Is there any reason they went from cm -> in and not directly from cm -> yards?
Are there any other resources i can use to better my understanding of conversion factors. I am just lost as to why you go from unit -> unit -> ... instead of jumping from one unit directly to another.
I am sorry if this is a dumb question .
