Meters

Meters are the fundamental unit of length in the metric system, defined as the distance that light travels in a vacuum during 1/299,792,458 seconds. Meters are widely used in scientific, engineering, and everyday contexts globally. The metric system, including the meter, was established during the French Revolution.

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.
