Differences Between Imperial Measurements and Us Customary Measurements

The Imperial system and the US customary system are similar to one another in many respects, with units like the cubic mile, cubic foot, and cubic inch being essentially the same. There are a few minor differences between these units of distance, but they can typically be used interchangeably. Some differences between the Imperial system and US customary system regarding distance include the fact that in the US system the survey mile and survey foot are separate units with their own values. The reason that the survey foot and survey mile have their own definitions is that otherwise, measurements made by US surveyors would accumulate errors over time. For instance, the US system sets 1 m as being equivalent to 39.37 inches while the international foot is equivalent to the are .3048 m. These differences must be accounted for otherwise every mile would see an error accumulation of approximately 3.2 mm. (Source: sciencetrends.com)
