##### Metric Weights and Measures
A millimicron is one thousandth of one millionth of one meter Most of the world uses the metric system. The only countries not on this system are the U.S., Myanmar, and Liberia. The metric system is based on 10s. For example, 10 decimeters make a meter (39.37 inches). Units smaller than a meter have Latin prefixes:
• Deci- means 10; 10 decimeters make a meter. Centi- means 100; 100 centimeters make a meter. Milli- means 1,000; 1,000 millimeters make a meter.
Units larger than a meter have Greek prefixes:
• Deka- means 10; a dekameter is 10 meters. Hecto- means 100; a hectometer is 100 meters. Kilo- means 1,000; a kilometer is 1,000 meters.
Remember: A meter is a little more than a yard . A kilometer is less than a mile . A liter is a little more than a quart

##### Old Babylonian Weights and Measures
The metrology of ancient Mesopotamia is very complicated, but key to understanding much of the mathematics as units are often silently converted in the middle of a problem. Units of length, weight, area, capacity and so on and the relationships between them changed frequently in both space and time. However, by the Old Babylonian period, the systems were much simpler than during the Sumerian period. For the large bulk of mathematical problem texts, there is a relatively standardized set of measurements, although there are plenty of exceptions. The tables below give the main units in this standard set, but are by no means comprehensive. For up-to-date and detailed references on the different systems, see the articles by Marvin Powell in RLA and Civilizations of the Ancient Near East Even in the Old Babylonian times, metrology had a rich collection of units. Most of the conversion factors are simple fractions or multiples of the base 60. Key units are the kush (cubit) for length, sar (garden-plot) for area and volume, sila for capacity and mana for weight. At the base of the system is the barleycorn, she, used for the smallest unit in length, area, volume and weight. Akkadian made use of a letter Â called a shin, pronounced as 'sh'. The barleycorn is a 'Âe', pronounced 'shay' and which we shall write as 'she.'

The definition, agreement and practical use of units of weights and measures have played a crucial role in human endeavor from early ages up to this day. Just to underline the importance of agreed units, the NASA Mars Polar Lander in December crashed on the planet Mars instead of staying in orbit , due to miscommunications about the value of forces: different people used different assumptions about the unit of measure newton versus pound ).

##### History of Weights and Measures
Weights and measures were among the earliest tools invented by humans. Primitive societies needed rudimentary measures for many tasks: constructing dwellings of an appropriate size and shape, fashioning clothing , or bartering food or raw materials The earliest weights and measures were based on the use of parts of the body and the natural surroundings as measuring instruments.

##### Historical weights and measures
Many systems of weights and measures have existed throughout history. The definitions of some of these units were often vague and inaccurate, and although the roots of many of the units were the same, the actual value of a unit differed from country to country, or epoch to epoch. That fact should not lead to a conclusion that historical units of measure were inaccurate in general. Many units were defined to a high precision, and standards of measurement were in many cases excellent. As a case in point, the Great Pyramid of Giza was built to a precision of 15 mm over sides that are 235 m, over four and a half thousand years ago. Table of contents 1 Mesopotamian system 1.1 Length

##### Weights and Measures Guidelines for Sales at Farmers' Markets, Roadside Stands and Other Commercial Outlets
by Laurie Hodges, Commercial Vegetable Specialist Previous Category Catalog Order Info Retail sale of fruits, vegetables, and other items is regulated by the Nebraska Weights and Measures Act. Vendors may erroneously believe that they are exempt from these regulations because they sell relatively little compared to a supermarket or because they only sell for a few months of the year. They are wrong. The Nebraska Weights and Measures Act applies to all sales. The regulation was established to ensure that buyers receive sufficient and accurate information with which to compare quantity and price. Even if you sell by count, "three ears of corn for \$1," for example, compliance with the Weights and Measures Act is necessary. As a vendor, complying with the regulations protects you from perceptions of shortchanging or misrepresenting your product. This NebFact focuses on the sale of fresh produce at farmers' markets, roadside stands, and other seasonal outlets. Method of Sale You may have seen fruits and vegetables made available using several different types of containers or measures. Sometimes these units are not the same as those used in wholesale markets or within specific markets, such as restaurants. These container sizes may not convert directly to common household units used in freezing or canning produce. However, legal weights and measures are required at all times when selling to consumers at farmers' markets, roadside stands, or other commercial outlets. Use the following information as a guideline on how to sell foods directly to consumers. If you have specific questions or a situation that is not clear to you regarding weights or measures, please use the contact information for assistance provided at the end of this publication.

If you enjoy working with 36ths, 16ths, 12ths and 5,280ths and memorizing the relationships, you'll miss them in the SI. Everything in metric, alas, is based on dull, dry 10ths, 100s, and so on.

##### Introduction
Ever since the 13th century, weights and measures has played a vital role in trade, both nationally and internationally. Almost all trade is subject to weights and measures legislation and the Weights and Measures Act 1985 was the original raison d'etre of the trading standards service.
The Act and its associated legislation establishes a hierarchy of standards of weight, area, length, volume, and capacity. Local authorities are charged with maintaining local and working standards which are traceable to national standards, and which are used to ensure all trade equipment is accurate. Any trade equipment is regulated, from 'optics' in bars to bulk fuel metering systems and computerised packing equipment in factories.
Inspectors of Weights and Measures are appointed by statute and have wide powers of entry to premises and test purchase of goods to check compliance with the law.

##### Volume and capacity
The modius and its subdivision the sextarius are the most commonly used measure of capacity and in the Vindolanda texts are used as measure for liquid (e.g. beer, wine) and 'dry goods' (e.g. cereals). There is also a reference to a metreta of beer (186). These units are usually, though not always, abbreviated, modius (plural modii ) to m with a bar above it, sextarius (plural sextarii ) to s divided horizontally by a bar. Again half is indicated by semis , abbreviated to s
##### Roman units
Roman units Metric (litres) Imperial (gallons: pints) 1 modius = 16 sextarii 1 metreta = 100 sextarii We have some information on the volumes of containers in which items brought to Vindolanda as supplies would have been transported. For example many complete amphorae have survived in shipwrecks and burials and barrels too when re-used as linings for wells. This allows archaeologists to calculate the volumes they would have carried. The records of their contents painted on amphorae (tituli dipinti) note capacities close to these assessments. The volumes of some common types of amphora and barrels are tabled here, recorded in Roman and modern metric and imperial units. (NB as well as being a term for a type of container
