Length

Unlike the metric system, where everything is neat and organized in units of ten, the U.S. system of length does not seem to be based on any one number. This table summarizes the different units of length. Although not used in cooking, I have included larger units of length also such as the mile and "Smoot". 1 mile = 945.671642 smoots A MIT measurement on the Mass Ave. bridge!
