S1 Units Measurements and Equivalencies
The article "S1 Units Measurements and Equivalencies" appeared in the September/October 1987 issue of Gear Technology.
Throughout the history of civilization attempts have been made to limit the number of the measuring systems in use with the result that today only two systems, English and metric, are practiced in the industrial nations. Globally, the metric system has been gaining ground, and the English system has been losing it. As of 1986, only the United States, Burma and Brunei remain uncommitted to metric conversion in the sense that no government controlled deadlines for the conversion have been established.
