## Feet (ft)

**Feet** – as the name suggests, the measure refers to the length of a human foot. For a long time, the foot was the basic unit of measurement for length. Its value has changed both over time and countries. For this reason, there are many names of feet that differ in length. Typically, the foot in the 18th and 19th centuries was 28.3 cm to 32.5 cm long. Nowadays, when we talk about the foot, we usually mean the English foot, which is 30.48 cm.

## Yard (yd)

**A yard** – is a unit of length that was used in the English system of measurement (until 1971) and is now used in the American system of measurement. It is an imperial unit that was established in Great Britain

There is an English yard and an American yard, but the difference in length is negligible. The most popular is the international yard, which is 0.9144 meters long. 1 yard is taken to be the same as 3 feet or 36 inches.

As a curiosity, it can be added that the word “yard” comes from the words “branch” or “stick”. On the other hand, the origin of the yard measure is not fully known.
