These area measurements are mostly square versions of their linear conterparts except for the acre which is an area of length 1 furlong and a width of 1 chain. The Old English word "acre" means field and it was generally considered the area that could be ploughed in a day using a yoke or oxen.

Metric System and Metric Conversion. Metric prefixes are easy to understand and very handy for metric conversions. You don't have to know the nature of a unit to convert, for example, from kilo-unit to mega-unit. Other prefixes like 'zepto' or 'yotta' are very specific and used mostly in science.

Numerous Tavole di ragguaglio (Conversion Tables) were displayed in shops until 31 December 1870. During the next eighty years a number of Parliamentary select committees recommended the adoption of the metric system, each with a greater degree of urgency, but Parliament prevaricated. A Select Committee report of 1862 recommended compulsory metrication, but with an "Intermediate permissive phase"; Parliament responded in 1864 by legalising metric units only for 'contracts and dealings'. The United Kingdom initially declined to sign the Treaty of the Metre, but did so in 1883.

Multiples and submultiples of metric units are related by powers of ten and their names are formed with prefixes

The French Revolution gave rise to the metric system, and this has spread around the world, replacing most customary units of measure. In most systems, length (distance), mass, and time are base quantities. Later science developments showed that either electric charge or electric current could be added to extend the set of base quantities by which many other metrological units could be easily defined. Multiples and submultiples of metric units are related by powers of ten and their names are formed with prefixes. This relationship is compatible with the decimal system of numbers and it contributes greatly to the convenience of metric units.
