## Unit Information

Fermi
/ˈfəːmi/
Symbol: fm
Unit System: Non-SI metric

### What is the Fermi?

The fermis is a unit of length in the non-SI metric system and uses the symbol fm.

One fermi is equal to 1×10−15m or 3.9370×10−14 in.

It is used to measure nuclear distances and was named after the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi (1901–1954). It has now been replaced with the SI-derived term femtometre.

Yard
/jɑːd/
Symbol: yd
Unit System: Imperial

### What is the Yard?

The yard is a unit of length in the imperial and US system and uses the symbol yd.

A yard is equal to 3 ft or 36 inches. There is 0.9144 m in a yard. There are 1760 yards in a mile.

Derived from the Old English 'gyrd' or 'gerd', the yard was first defined in the late 1600s laws of Ine of Wessex where a "yard of land" (yardland) was an old unit of tax assessment by the government.

The yard was the original standard adpoted by early English leaders and was apparently used in length by the Saxon race and represented the breadth of the chest of a man. After a relative hiatus, Queen Elizabeth reintroduced the yard as the English standard of measure, and it still survives in many 2nd generation conversations today.
