From the meter, several other units of measure are derived such as the:
unit of speed is the meter per second (m/s). The speed of light in vacuum is 299 792 458 meters per second.
unit of acceleration is the meter per second per second (m/s2).
unit of area is the square meter (m2).
unit of volume is the cubic meter (m3). The liter (1 cubic decimeter), although not an SI unit, is accepted for use with the SI and is commonly used to measure fluid volume.
FAQ: When did the metric redefinition of the inch occur?
In 1958, a conference of English-speaking nations agreed to unify their standards of length and mass, and define them in terms of metric measures. The American yard was shortened and the imperial yard was lengthened as a result. The new conversion factors were announced in 1959 inFederal Register Notice 59-5442 (June 30, 1959), which states the definition of a standard inch: The value for the inch, derived from the value of the Yard effective July 1, 1959, isexactly equivalent to 25.4 mm.
