Microns

One micron is equal to one millionth of a meter. Microns are often used to measure very small lengths, especially in scientific and industrial contexts. For example, the thickness of certain materials, the size of microorganisms, or the dimensions of electronic components are often expressed in microns due to their small scale. The use of microns is common in fields such as microscopy, nanotechnology, and semiconductor manufacturing where precision at the microscopic level is essential.

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.
