Measures of length

Units of measure are all the units used to express length. Individual units of length can be mutually converted into other units. Length measures have a long history. Initially, they were used to determine the length of body parts. Hence, such measures of length as elbows, hands, feet, crotch, fingers or thumb. Currently, the basic SI unit of length is the meter. 

Rulers, calipers and rangefinders can be used to measure small physical lengths. For your own needs, you can also use a tailor’s tape measure and a rolled ruler. In turn, for distance measurements on roads, odometers are used, which additionally take into account the unevenness of the terrain. One of the main disadvantages of widely available measurement tools is the occurrence of measurement errors.
