One township = 36 sections or 23,040 acres where an acre = 160 square poles = 100,000 square gunter links = 43,560 square feet = 10 chains where 1 chain = 22 yards, but the engineers chain = 100 feet.
On the other hand, 1 barrel = 42 gallons or 196 pounds or 55 gallons. But 1 gallon = 4 quarts with 2 pints per quart or 4 cups. Unless its the Queen Anne wine gallon, the milk gallon, or the imperial gallon.
However we have 62.4 pounds per cubic foot for water. Now then there is the statute mile, the league, the nautical mile, and the marine league.
Gasp! There is the liquid pint = 28.875 cubic inches, the liquid quart = 128 drams = 7680 minims. Ah, but 1 teaspoon = 1 1/3 drams which is 238 scruples.
So there is the Troy ounce, the Avoidupois ounce and a pound of feathers is not the same as a pound of gold.
Oooh, we have the short ton and the long ton. Do not get these confused with the furlong or the fathom.
Bushells and pecks, palms and hands should have nothing to do with carats.
