that you can divide 1 meter
by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)...
a cube (1000 cmณ) of it to fill with water...
and you will find that it contains
exactly 1 L (1 liter)
and is the mass of exactly
kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
NONE OF THIS EXAMPLE IS POSSIBLE...
WE JUST IMAGINE IT TO ILLUSTRATE
NOTHING WITH INCH-POUND
IS RELATED TO ANYTHING.
a person from another country or planet wanted to know how you could make the
old "inch-pound non-system" easy to understand by
demonstrating how Length,
MIGHT relate to each other in that
archaic method of
And then someone
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
1 quart which, when placed
on a scale weighed
exactly 1 pound".
Let's go party!"
THERE'S A BIG PROBLEM
and HAS BEEN FOR A LONG TIME!
BUT NOTHING LOGISTICALLY RELATES in such
an outdated non-system of inches,
pounds, gallons, firkens, knoginheads or barleycorns!
Just a lot of TIME CONSUMING complicated
figures and fractions to memorize
that no other people on this planet or any other universe
seems to have been subjected to.
FOR THOSE WHO MAY SUGGEST DIFFERENT
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?
OR DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME...
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
which is the better 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
How about 3 feet in a yard... 12 inches in a foot?
And a foot is nowhere
near the length of"
an average person's foot and blah, blah, blah.
Can you believe this?
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.
It's WAS all nuts!
