# What is the standard SI unit for measuring the height of the beaker?

Relevance
• You would measure the height of a beaker in centimeters.

There's not a "standard" unit. Each type of measurement has a "base" unit. The base unit for measuring length in the SI system is the meter. But it would be impractical to measure how tall a beaker is in meters. You would use a centimeter ruler, and measure it in centimeters.

The SI base units are:

Length - meter (m)

Mass - kilogram (kg)

Time - second (s)

Amount of substance - mole (mole)

Electric current - ampere (A)

Temperature - kelvin (K)

Luminous intensity - candela (cd)

• The standard SI unit for lengths, heights, distances, etc. is the meter. You can also use decimal multiples and sub-multiples of the meter, but the base unit is still the meter.
