MEASURES

These basketball players were tall, yes … but HOW TALL? This is the correspondence between their measures and ours:  

height: 1 foot = 30.48 cm          1 inch = 2.5 cm (there are 12″ in 1 ft)

distance: 1 yard = 0.914 m  (that is, 3 ft)   1 mile = 1.609 km

liquids: 1 pint = 0.47 litres        1 gallon = 4.546 l.

weight: 1 pound = 0.454 kg  (there are 16 ounces in 1 lb;  each one is 28.35 gr)
