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.

Yards

A yard is a unit of length in both the imperial and U.S. customary systems of measurement. It is defined as exactly 3 feet or 36 inches. Yards are commonly used in everyday measurements, especially in the United States and countries that follow the imperial system. They are frequently used for measuring distances in sports, construction, and various household applications. For example, a football field is 100 yards long, and cloth and textiles are often measured and sold in yards.
