Is there a unit of time bigger than Millennium that still measures years?
According to Wikipedia (http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/Annum) megaannum, usual symbol Ma, is a unit of time equal to one million (106) years. It is commonly used in scientific disciplines such as geology, paleontology, and celestial mechanics to signify very long time periods in the past. For example, the dinosaur species Tyrannosaurus rex was abundant approximately 65 Ma (65 million years) ago (ago may not always be mentioned; if the quantity is specified while not explicitly discussing a duration, one can assume that "ago" is implied; "mya" includes "ago" explicitly.). In astronomical applications, the year used is the Julian year of precisely 365.25 days.
- gigaannum, usual symbol Ga, is a unit of time equal to one (short scale) billion (109) years. It is commonly used in scientific disciplines such as cosmology and geology to signify extremely long time periods in the past. For example, the formation of the Earth occurred approximately 4.57 Ga (4.57 billion years) ago.
- exaannum, usual symbol Ea, is a unit of time equal to (1018) years (one quintillion on the short scale, one trillion on the long scale). It is an extremely long unit of time. The half-life of tungsten-180 is 1.8 Ea.

It would be the day, one rotation of the planet.. or 1 orbit around the sun (a year). any way you look at it those are our two constants
SI Prefixes . One nanometer (nm) is equal to one billionth of a meter, or 0.000000001m. A picometer (pm) is one trillionth (millionth of a millionth) of a meter, or 0.000000000001m.. A femtometer (fm) is one quadrillionth (millionth of a billionth) of a meter, or 0.000000000000001m.. And so …on and so forth, dividing by one thousand each time:. Attometer (am) = quintillionth of a meter Zeptometer (zm) = sextillionth of a meter Yoctometer (ym) = septillionth of a meter. Eventually, there's the Planck length , widely considered to be the smallest mesure of distance, equal to about 1.6 x 10 -35 m. ( Full Answer )
ANSWER: . Millisecond, second, minute, hour, day, month, year, decade, century, millenium, eon and light year are the ones I can think of. Other unit measurers are called a pendulum, a stopwatch, a watch, a clock, a water clock, a pocketwatch, a grandfather clock, a sundial and an atomic clock.
This has been a source of debate for quite some time. Many sources cite that the People's Republic of China is larger in size than the United States. Others say that the United States is larger (however, these sources include certain water areas, such as the Great Lakes, for the United States, but d…oes not include water areas for the People's Republic of China. They also tend to be United States-based operations). China's area includes disputed territories and therefore shouldn't be considered part of China's area since it is disputed. If including water area, China is larger than the US, but if including all territory that is undisputed, the US becomes larger than China. Overall, China is just slightly larger in size compared to the United States. ( Full Answer )
By land area, excluding the Great Lakes, the People's Republic of China is bigger. Including the Great Lakes, it is the opposite.
Millenniums are 1000 years. Year: 1 Year Decade: 10 Years Century: 100 Years Millennium: 1000 Years "One Million Years?"
Let's work this out together; by the end it will make sense. In a base ten systen (our numbering system based on the typicalnumber of digits humans have on their hands), we begin counting atthe number one, completing each set after ten. Like so: 1, 2, 3, 4,5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. After each set of ten,… we begin again at one; like so: 11, 12, and21, 22, etc. After ten sets of ten we reach one hundred, repeating the previousmethod. We do not stop countuing one hundred at 99. Likewise we donot stop counting to one thousand at 999. Now, ten years is a decade, one hundred is a century, and onethousand is a millenium. At ten plus one day of the next year, youhave a decade plus one day until 365.25 have passed and you haveone decade and one year. The same is true for a century and amillenium. The first century, figuratively began at 1 AD, as did the firstmillenium. the second century began on 1 January 101 AD and ended31 December 200 AD. On 1 January 201 AD, the third century ADbegan. Now extend this to the millenium: 1 January 1 AD to 31 December1000 AD was the first millenium. 1 January 1001 AD to 31 December2000 was the second millenium. The third began 1 January 2001 AD. We always begin counting with one. ( Full Answer )
They just divide up seconds, into milli- micro- nano- etc.. It's possible that the shortest interval of time is 10 to the -43 power seconds .... if time is discreet.. Further details: . The smallest measurable and meaningful unit of time is Planck time. In physics, this is equal to the time it t…akes for light to travel, in a vacuum, a distance of 1 Planck length.. However, since most of us cannot relate to physics, the shortest unit of time is the Yoctosecond, which is one septillionth (short scale) of a second. ( Full Answer )
The hectare is 10,000 square meters. An acre is about 4,047 square meters, so there are about 2.47 acres in a hectare.. Certainly there are other units of area measure that are larger. There are 640 acres in a square mile.

There are many of them. Here are a few: -- yoctosecond -- femtosecond -- picosecond -- nanosecond -- microsecond -- millisecond -- second -- minute -- hour -- day -- week -- fortnight -- year -- Century -- eon
The unit of length that is 10 times larger than a millimeter isknown as a centimeter. 1 cm = 10 mm. It is a very common unit ofmeasure in the metric system.
Unit of measurement 1000 times less than the millimeter is themicrometer. Unit of measurement 1,000,000 times less than the millimeter is thenanometer.
the decimeter unit is bigger than the centimeter unit. The prefix Deci means 1/10th the prefix Centi means 1/100th For a meter unit, the decimeter = 1/10th meter so 1 meter = 10 decimeter, and the centimeter = 1/100 meter so 1 meter = 100 cm Accordingly, 1 decimeter = 10 centimeter
In theory you could put any of the prefixes like "mega", "giga" etc. in front of "metre", and they would be valid units. A megametre would be bigger than a kilometre. But no-one normally uses megametre as a unit.
The "Light Year" is a unit. It has the dimensions of length or distance, just like the inch, foot, yard, meter, furlong, mile, and kilometer. It was invented at the time in the development of Astronomy when all of those other units resulted in ridiculously large numbers, and a new, longer unit w…as needed to describe the distances being measured for the first time.. For example: When the distance to the nearest star was first measured, it was found to be located roughly 25,866,000,000,000 miles from the earth. Noticing that few people in the observatory even knew how to read that number, and realizing that this was the nearest star and that all the others lie at even greater distances, astronomers immediately realized that the mile was fine for describing the Thanksgiving trip to grandma's house, but it was totally inadequate for describing "astronomical" distances. They needed a new unit.. For purposes of discussion, they adopted a unit of distance equal to the distance that light travels in one earth year ... roughly 5,878,700,000,000 miles. This unit has the exact same properties as the inch and the millimeter, except that it's somewhat bigger. In terms of this new unit, the distance to the nearest star is 4.4 light-years ... much easier to pronounce and remember. ( Full Answer )
a megameter. equal to 1000000 meters. u can also use league which is equal to 3 miles
Two angles are complementary. The larger angle is 5 times bigger than the smaller angle. What are the measurements of each?
We know complementary means they add up to 90 degrees. Let x = small angle Therefore 5x = bigger angle x + 5x = 90 6x = 90 x = 90/6 x = 15 Therefore the smaller angle is 15 degrees and the bigger angle is 75 degrees (15 x 5).
The units of measure for time are seconds, minutes, hours, days, years, decades, centuries, and millenia.
The light-year is a measure of distance. It's the distance light travels in vacuum in one year. 5.8787 x 10 12 miles (rounded)
There are many units of measure smaller than a foot. In standard US measure 12 inches equal one foot.
10 times 5 is 50. 10 times bigger than 5 would for some be 50 , for others 50+5 = 55 .
There are 7 fundamental units in S.I system . . Thus ,for unit of length and mass and conversion ,the relationsare given .By the conversion table : . We can say that miles,light years and astronomical unitsare bigger than kilometers .
2 centuries are 200 years. A millennium is 1000 years So your answer is 800 years
1 meter = 100 centimeters, or 1 centimeter = 1/100 meters, so the meter is the larger measurement.
The most common unit of time used in science is the second. It varies depending on the field, though. Geology and cosmology may measure time the Ba, billions of years while a spectroscopist may use fs, femtoseconds, or 10^-15s.
The whole purpose for choosing one unit instead of another unit is to avoid running into inconveniently large or small numbers. That's why the light year was invented. Using miles, the nearest star outside the solar system is 25,280,000,000,000 miles away, and the present radius of the obse…rvable universe is about 82,301,800,000,000,000,000,000 miles. These numbers are obviously inconvenient to write down, remember, and tell others about, so a larger unit was needed. The light year is handy, because just one of them takes care of 5,878,700,000,000 miles. Would the light year be a convenient ruler to use for the distances to planets ? Let's see: Pluto's orbital distance from the sun averages about 4,557,000,000 miles. We might be able to use miles, but let's look at a couple of other units before we choose one. How about the light-year ? Pluto's orbital distance from the sun averages about 0.000775 light year. That's not too convenient. How about the Astronomical Unit ? Now Pluto's orbit averages about 49 AU. Which unit do you think produces the most convenient numbers for distances within the solar system ? ( Full Answer )
One light year is the distance that light travels in one year. One AU is the distance from the Sun to the Earth, approximately 8.3 light-MINUTES. A light-year is about 62,000 times larger than an AU.
a millenium is 1000 years...a century is a 100 years. So...are you asking what is 2000 - 200 = ? The answer would be 1800 years

Time is not a unit of measurement, but there are measurements that are done in units of time. Examples are seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, and years.
Uh, I believe (in order from least to greatest time) that there are Epochs, Periods, Eras, and Ages.
Efficiency. It's easier to say ' 10 kilometers' than it is to say '10,000 meters.'
The unit measure which is larger than miles is only 1 unit that is,the light years .
1 millennium = 1000 years 1 century = 100 years â 10 centuries = 10 x 100 years = 1000 years â 1 millennium is neither bigger nor smaller than 10 centuries - 1 millennium is the same as 10 centuries.
there are many units for measurements .three measurements arebigger than a kilometer are miles , light years and megameters .
Longer periods were given in lifetimes or generations (saecula,aion), period, used by Al-Biruni around AD 1000, and by Roger Baconin the 13th century.
No because they are both the same inasmuch that a 1/4 of a 1000 years = 250 years
