The microinch is used for precise machining tolerances and also to describe the roughness of surfaces. Unit Definition (mile) The mile is one of the most common measurements of distance. It originates from the Latin word for 1000, 'mille'. Originally a mile was the distance a Roman legion could march in 1000 paces. In medieval Britain, several mile units were used, including the modern mile defined as 8 furlongs (1609 meters). Note that French, Scottish and Irish miles varied from the English. In 1592, Parliament defined the statute mile to be 8 furlongs or 1609.344 meters.
