Conversion Units and Approximations

So my guide/ program for the H.I.S (Height Increase Seeker) is to break down the entire process down by the length of height increase they will expect to get.

Let’s do some conversions. The United States and United Kingdom apparently are very unique because they chose to adopt and use their own form of measurement system, unlike the rest of the world which uses the Standard International (SI) system. We will not focus on the mass units or the time units but only on the length units for conversion

US/UK Standard Units

  1. Feet
  2. Inch
  3. Yard
  4. Mile

Rest of the world Standard Units

  1. Millimeter
  2. Centimeter
  3. Decimeter
  4. Meters

We only focus on two of the 8 units, centimeters and inches.  The official conversion we use is this equality: 2.54 centimeters = 1 inch

That 2.54 centimeters can be converted to 25.4 millimeters. Now, for anyone who has ever seen a ruler, one would realize just how small 1 millimter really is. usually about 2-3 hair widths make up one millimeter.

Now, if we remember that we (or at least most of us) have hair on our head. When we get our height measured, our hair does have a slight influence. The pressing down on the hair means usually about 20-30 hair widths are pressed down. That means that our height can have a 2-3 millimeter deviation from if we were completely bald. What I wanted to do is that that the 0.4 millimeters at the end of the conversion is not that influential until it is accumulated together. The effect of the small amount (0.4 milliters) is negated by the amount of deviation allowed by the compression of our hair.

So, for most general purposes I would prefer to use this conversion to make life simpler. – 2.50 cm = 1 inch so 10 cm = 4 inches 

Note: even though 4 inches = 10.16 cm exactly, the extra 1.6 millimeter is negligible and truncated.

I am going to put a limit of a height gain of 10 cm or 4 inches on this site because I personally don’t think a height increase of anything over 4 inches is even remotely possible , at least naturally.
