Info about "Meter"

Meter is a basic unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and other metric systems. All other units of length in the metric system are derived from the meter (e.g. 1 km = 1.000 m, 1m = 1.000 mm).

The meter was defined in 1799 based on measurements taken at the time as the ten millionth part of the distance from the North Pole to the equator. For this purpose, a so-called prototype meter was casted in platinum. Since 1983, the meter has been defined as the distance travelled by light in 1/299,792,458 seconds in a vacuum.

Info about "Inch"

According to history, the inch was first defined by law as 1/12 of a foot, then later as the length of three barley grains strung together. Similar to foot, yard and mile, it is also one of the length units that are not part of the International System of Units, but used widely and approved in the Anglo-American area. The inch is used worldwide, mainly to indicate screen diagonals.

Nowadays, inch is fixed to 1/12 of a foot. Therefore, 1 inch is equivalent to 2.54 centimeters or 1 centimeter is equivalent to 0.3937 inches.
