English to Metric
Why do you need to convert English to Metric? Well, in 1893 the U.S. based the yard and pound on fractions of the international metric standards for the meter and kilogram. In 1968, Congress authorized a three-year study of metric system during a period of 10 years. This would help reduce the cost and problems of changing the nation's measurement system. Back in 1988 a bill passed that amended the 1975 bill and made the metric system the preferred system of weights and measures for U.S. trade and commerce. By the end of 1992 this conversion had begun. Because of this, you now have to convert English to Metric.
