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 "Yard"

The yard or step is very common in the Anglo-American countries, but does not belong to the international unit system SI (Système international d'unités). The yard or step is officially approved in Anglo-American countries and is used to describe medium lengths.

Over the years, various definitions have been given, for example, the yard was defined as the length of three feet or the distance from the tip of the nose to the tip of the thumb of Heinrich I's outstretched arm. Since 1956, the yard or step has been defined as follows: 1yard = 3feet = 0.9144 meters.
