The imperial and US customary measurement systems are both derived from an earlier English system of measurement which in turn can be traced back to Ancient Roman units of measurement, and Carolingian and Saxon units of measure. m/s definiert und mit 735,49875 Watt etwas kleiner als die britische horse power; sie wird manchmal als metric horsepower, also als metrische Pferdestärke, bezeichnet. Im angloamerikanischen Maßsystem wird der umgekehrte Bezug hergestellt. Current systems are based on the destruction of some peoples, the conversion of others into groups without recognized rights of existence and independence, the reduction of some satellite peoples of the dominant group in a nation-state and the nostalgia for imperial ambitions of states. In 1900 the Board of Trade established the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to provide laboratory facilities for weights and measures.[13]. [19] The differences between the British and the US yard and pound was of the order of a few parts per million. [11]:85–88, The British Weights and Measures Act of 1824 repealed all existing British weights and measures legislation, some dating back to the 1300s, and redefined existing units of measure. In 1915 the conference published its first model standards. [77], The situation is however not as clear-cut as this. [citation needed]. The US Customary system of units makes use of set of dry units of capacity that have a similar set of names[Note 7] to those of liquid capacity, though different volumes: the dry pint having a volume of 33.6 cubic inches (550 ml) against the US fluid pint's volume of 28.875 cubic inches (473 ml) and the imperial pint of 34.68 cubic inches (568 ml). The tables below catalogue the imperial units of measure that were permitted for use in trade in the United Kingdom on the eve of metrication (1976)[70][71] and the customary "units of measurement that have traditionally been used in the United States". In the last thousand years, three principal pounds were used in England. Als eines der letzten Länder weltweit halten die USA noch am Meilensystem fest. Der Grund, warum das imperiale System an Bedeutung gewann, liegt in der Tatsache, dass Großbritannien im 17. und 18. Generell gilt, dass die Verbrauchsangaben weltweit nach unterschiedlichen Standards ermittelt werden und somit eine Umrechnung nur eine begrenzte Aussagekraft hat (siehe auch Kraftstoffverbrauch). Die angloamerikanischen Maßsysteme haben ihren Ursprung im mittelalterlichen England und fanden Verbreitung im Einflussgebiet des ehemaligen Britischen Weltreichs. Gauge = 0,000000254 m. twip = 0,000017638 m. mil (US), thou (UK) = 0,0000254 m. mickey = 0,000127 m. point = 0,00035277. und ein paar andere seltene für einige Technikbereiche. Both systems used the three different scales – the avoirdupois system for general use, the troy system for precious metals and the apothecaries system in the pharmacy industry. America Has Two Feet. The Imperial system standardized measurements for units like pound and foot that had different meanings in different places. [60] Both the United States and the United Kingdom, as signatories of the Metre Convention, took delivery of copies of both the standard metre and the standard kilogram. In his response in 1790 he noted that the existing system of measure was sound but that control of the base artefact was not under the control of the United States. "[30] Subsequent to the formation of the United States, the Constitution reaffirmed the right of Congress to "fix the Standard of Weights and Measures" but reserved the right to regulate commerce and weights and measures to the individual states.[31]. In 1777 the Royal Society, under the chairmanship of Henry Cavendish, proposed the definition of the Fahrenheit scale be modified such that the temperature corresponding to the melting point of ice be 32 °F (0 °C) and the boiling point of water under standard atmospheric conditions be 212 °F (100 °C). During the twentieth century the principal change in the customary system of weights and measures was an agreement between NIST and the corresponding bodies in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom, signed in 1960, that redefined the yard and the pound in terms of the metre and the kilogram respectively. [14] Many adopted the imperial system of units with local variations. [29] In the event, the existing standards were retained. Folgende Beispiele sollen das erläutern: Nachdem in Großbritannien die Tankstellen auf Liter umgestellt wurden, Entfernungen aber weiter in Meilen angegeben werden, taucht dort auch die Angabe von Meilen pro Liter (mi/l) auf. [48], In 1873 a committee of the British Association for the Advancement of Science under the chairmanship of William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) introduced the concept of coherence into units of measure and proposed the names dyne and erg as the units of force and work in the CGS system of units. The imperial system of measure does not have an equivalent to the US customary system of "dry measure". The metric system was designed by over-rationalist, naive French people who also thought it would be a neat idea to divide time into tens. [61] In 1893, under the Mendenhall Order the United States abandoned the 1855 yard as a standard of length and the "Mint pound" as a standard of mass, redefining them in terms of the metre and kilogram using the values of the 1866 legislation. Shall be a double prime symbol, but often approximated as ", a double, In this context, "Regulated use" means the uses specified in the, United States Declaration of Independence, National Conference on Weights and Measures, General Conference on Weights and Measures, British Association for the Advancement of Science, fire partially destroyed the Palace of Westminster, Comparison of the imperial and US customary measurement systems, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Plan for Establishing Uniformity in the Coinage, Weights, and Measures of the United States, Office of the Secretary of State of the United States, "The History of the English System of Weights and Measures", "The Development of Weights and Measures Control in the United Kingdom", "A Central Program for Weights and Measures Canada", "Weights and Measures Act, 1878 [41 & 42 Vict. https://blog.ansi.org/2018/06/us-customary-system-history-units Americans use the metric system, every day. [1], The earliest records of English units of measure involve the weight (and therefore the value) of Saxon coins. Apart from the poundal, most of the named units of measure are non-coherent, but were adopted due to traditional working practice. [2]:155 In 1960 representatives from the NPL and other national laboratories from the United States and Commonwealth agreed to redefine the yard as being exactly 0.9144 metres, an action that was ratified by the British Government as part of the 1963 Weights and Measures Act. [7] Some time between 1266 and 1303 the weights and measures of England were radically revised by a law known as the Composition of Yards and Perches (Compositio ulnarum et perticarum)[8] often known as the Compositio for short. [75] At that time the metric system had become established in continental Europe while in the United Kingdom metrication was an active issue. Commonwealth countries used this system from 1824 until they changed to the metric system.The imperial system is very similar to the American system but there are some differences Following the debacle over the different gallons that had been adopted by the United States and the United Kingdom thirty years earlier, one of the copies of the standard yard was offered to and accepted by the United States Government.[14].

Newton's second law in these systems becomes: AE is ignored in many engineering courses and textbooks[55][56] while some, such as Darby only uses EE (alongside SI), having described the BG and EE systems as "archaic". Early History of Weights and Measures in the United States", "Agricultural Commodity Metric Conversion Guide", "Setting the United States Standards for Weights and Measures", International Bureau of Weights and Measures, "Does the history of food energy units suggest a solution to "Calorie confusion"? Apothecaries weights were used in the pharmaceutical industry and have remained almost unchanged since the Middle Ages – the Apothecaries pound and ounce being the same as the Troy pound and ounce, but each system having different sub-units. Oktober 2019: vereinheitlichten „Internationalen Yards“, für bestimmte Größenangaben in der Technik, Revolution in measurement: Western European weights and measures since the age of science. In the years that followed the passing of the 1878 Act, the standard imperial yard was found to be shrinking at a rate, confirmed in 1950, to be nearly one part per million every 30 years. Nordamerikanische Landaufteilung in Sektionen, Größenbeschreibung für landwirtschaftliche Güter im mittelalterlichen England. In 965 AD, King Edgar decreed "that only one weight and one measure should pass throughout the King's dominion". In international trade, the ton of 2240 pounds was often referred to as the "long ton" and the ton of 2000 pounds as the "short ton". Ein metrisches Einheitensystem, kurz metrisches System, ist ein Einheitensystem mit dem Meter als Basiseinheit für die Länge einer Strecke. The SI equivalents are quoted to four significant figures. Hier wird die Streckenlänge (in Meilen) angegeben, die mit einer Gallone Kraftstoff zurückgelegt werden kann, also die Kraftstoffeffizienz. The bushel, which like the gallon, had definitions reflecting the various gallons, was defined as 8 imperial gallons. [22], When colonies attained dominion status, they also attained the right to control their own systems of weights and measures. By the end of the Second World War, the standards laboratories of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa also had their own copies of the pound and the yard. In particular, a new standard yard and troy pound were manufactured as the standards for length and weight respectively. The Domesday Book used the hide, an economic unit of measure. Following a report published in 1841 by a commission new standard yard and pound were manufactured using the best available secondary sources. [32], In 1827 Albert Gallatin, United States minister at London acquired an "exact copy" of the troy pound held by the British Government which in 1828 was adopted as the reference copy of weight in the United States. [35], Prior to 1960 the imperial and customary yard and the pound were sufficiently close to each other[Note 5] that for most practical purposes the differences in the sizes of units of length, area, volume and mass could be disregarded, though there were differences in usage - for example, in the United States short road distances are specified in feet[65] while in the United Kingdom they are specified in yards[66] The introduction of the international yard in 1960 caused small but noticeable effects in surveying in the United States which resulted in some states retaining the original definitions of the customary units of measure which are now known as the survey mile, foot, while other states adopted the international foot.
