## About Inch

### The history of inch

Inch has been used as a measurement unit for a long time. It was introduced centuries ago in the Roman Empire. Inch was called â€˜unciaâ€™ in the Roman Empire. It was referred to as the one-twelfth part of a foot. It was adopted in the early measurements of European measurement systems. In the medieval period, inch existed in different regional measurements in England. An inch was equal to three dry and round grains of barely put end-to-end in length. King Henry VII devised a standardized system of measurement units in the late 15th century. The standardized system of measurements included yards. One yard was equal to three feet, and one foot was equal to twelve inches.

The Weights and Measures Act of 1824 includes the definition of one inch as the thirty-sixth part of a yard. The British Imperial System gave strength to the use of inches worldwide.Â

### The current use of inch

Inch has been used widely from the 15th century to recent times. Engineers use inches widely for manufacturing and construction project assessment in fields like aerospace, automotive, and electronics. Inch is used in paper printing and design.
