The foot is a unit of length in the imperial unit system and uses the symbol ft.

One foot is exactly equal to 12 inches. It is also exactly equal to 0.3048m. One yard is comprised of three feet.

The foot is just behind the metre in terms of widespread use due to its previous popularity. The US is the only developed country that still uses the foot in preference to the metre.

The UK still uses feet to express human height more than metres.

The pica is a unit of length in the field of typography and uses the symbol pc.

There are 12 points in 1 pica. 1 pica represents approximately 1/6 of an inch.

Picas are expressed using numbers and a lower case p on software such as Adobe InDesign - for example 8p6 which would represent 8 picas and 6 points (or 8.5 picas).

The Pica is very useful in measuring and calculating the space needed to print letters and words on paper - for example when laying out books or magazine articles; the font lengths are quanitified by the number of characters per pica (cpp).
