## What is a chain?

The chain is a unit of length measurement commonly used in surveying and land measurement. It is primarily used in countries that follow the imperial system of measurement, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. One chain is equal to 66 feet or 20.1168 meters. It is further divided into 100 links, with each link measuring 0.66 feet or 7.92 inches.

The chain was historically used for measuring large areas of land, such as farms or estates. Surveyors would use chains to measure distances between points and establish boundaries. The use of chains allowed for more accurate measurements compared to other methods available at the time. Today, the chain is still used in some specialized fields, such as civil engineering and land surveying, although it has been largely replaced by more modern and precise measurement tools like GPS.

## What is a meter?

A meter is a unit of length in the metric system, and it is equivalent to 100 centimeters or 1,000 millimeters. It is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and is widely used around the world for measuring distances. The meter was originally defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the North Pole to the equator along a meridian passing through Paris, France. However, in 1983, the meter was redefined as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum during a specific time interval.
