## Inches

An inch (symbol: in) is a unit of length used mainly in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. One inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters.

The inch has origins in ancient times, originally based on the width of a human thumb. Its current definition, established in 1959, is exactly 2.54 centimeters.

Inches are commonly used to measure smaller lengths and distances, such as screen sizes and fabric lengths. Despite the widespread adoption of the metric system, the inch remains in use in these countries.

## Handbreadth

A handbreadth is a historical unit of length used to measure small distances, typically based on the width of a hand. One handbreadth is approximately equivalent to 4 inches or about 0.1016 meters.

The handbreadth is defined as the width of a person's hand, measured from the edge of the thumb to the edge of the little finger when the hand is spread out. This unit was used for practical measurements in various contexts, including textiles and construction.

Handbreadths were used in historical measurement systems for assessing lengths and dimensions where precise tools were not available. Although less common today, the unit provides historical context for traditional measurement practices and everyday use in different cultures.
