Chris Pulham, Donald Hillger sirs:
Whatever, held United States to stay away for adopting The SI Metric Unites, even after some 200-years of promoting the measurements in Metric Units (excluding of course TIME UNIT, the second,s).
As a former, Veteran of Indian Air Force, I stumbled across the idea of “The Metric Second; 1973 April” and attempted to define Nautical Kilometre(on shelving Nautical Mile) My value for fixing the value for Pi=100000/ 31831, also fixes the value for Radian=57*17’ 44”.88 - as above. This remained under discussions with USMA & Calndr-L since mid-2002, and prior since my published contribution. Since about TWO decades, I argued to switch Time of the HOUR, to link the ‘clock face 12/24hx60mx60s along with (on same dial face) as 12/24hx100mdx100sd AND equating 86400 seconds=240000 Decimal seconds. Simultaneousl, it was necessary ‘bridging Arc-angle’ as 90*60’60” =90*100’100” to co-ordinate with clock face
to read DUAL scales. Thus, keeping the HOUR same (with 24-hour day), it is easy to co-ordinate Time & Angle; and arrive at a viable definition for Nautical Kilometre - delibrately or otherwise denied to SCIENCE! Here lies the option for United States to adopt Metric Norms, the whole hog way.
IT IS TIME TO CHANGE TIME, Arc-angle & Calendar (with or without Leap Days/Leap Weeks), as discussed with experts and at my Home Page: http://www.brijvij.com
