NONE OF THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE IS POSSIBLE...
FOR THIS JUST TO ILLUSTRATE HOW NOTHING WITH INCH-POUND IS RELATED TO ANYTHING.
a person from another country or planet
wanted to know how you could make the
"inch-pound non-system" easy to understand by
demonstrating how Length,
and Weight MIGHT
relate to each other in that
archaic method of
then, IF you
could take the length of a yard and divide it by exactly
ten equal parts... so we can make a cube container with
equal sides to hold water...
...then by some
strange course of events imagine again IF we could fill that cube
container with water AND that cube contained the liquid of exactly
1 quart which, when placed on a scale weighed exactly
Let's go party!"
THIS EXAMPLE SHOWS HOW NOTHING
in such an outdated non-system of inches,
firkens, knoginheads or even barleycorns!
Just a lot of TIME CONSUMING complicated
figures and fractions to memorize.
TRY TO CALCULATE in the "INCH-POUND SYSTEM"
Is the solid of 16 oz. in bag of nuts
the same as 16 oz. of liquid in can of juice?
Try to add up in your head the total of
2/3+3/8+3/5 of an inch
How about going shopping and trying to determine
the best buy...
oz. can of a product for 63 cents,
or 2-14.5 oz. cans for $1.10
or maybe 3-16
oz. cans for $1.49.
And "lb" for
now... Animals Are in Pounds!
How about 3 feet in a yard... 12 inches in a foot?
A foot is nowhere
near the length of
an average person's foot and blah, blah, blah.
The American gallon originated as being the amount of
wine in the British "Queen Ann's Wine Gallon". What's with that?
that long ago!
you can divide
10 equal parts
(10 cm each side)
a cube (1000 cmณ) of it to fill
and you will find that it contains
1 L (1 litre)
is the mass
kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g)
