Centimeters

Centimeters are a unit of length in the metric system, representing one hundredth of a meter. They are commonly used in everyday measurements and are especially prevalent in fields such as science, engineering, and medicine. The metric system, including the centimeter, was officially introduced during the French Revolution as part of the decimal-based system of measurement.

Chains

A chain is a unit of length equal to 66 feet or 22 yards. It has historical significance and was widely used in the past for measuring large plots of land, especially in agriculture and real estate. The chain was often employed alongside other traditional units of length, such as rods and links. The use of chains has diminished in modern times, replaced by the metric system or other standard units of measurement. However, in some historical contexts or when dealing with older land survey records, you may still encounter references to measurements in chains.
