Metric SystemI have put together a page on the Metric System of Measurement. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20070613 15:19:23
Re: Metric SystemIt's just missing one thing. A section entitled: "Why the US is stupid for not using the metric system." "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20070613 23:45:18
Re: Metric SystemThe two pages are very good. Is meters spelt so universally? I am tempted to spell it 'metres'! Character is who you are when no one is looking. #4 20070614 02:24:04
Re: Metric Systemit's spelled that way in French, perhaps a few other languages, too. "Knowledge is directly proportional to the amount of equipment ruined." "This woman painted a picture of me; she was clearly a psychopath"
