Imperial Units Background
Imperial units are a system of units defined by the Weight and Measures Act of 1824 in the United Kingdom, these were later refined in 1959 (as were US Customary units hence the use of the term Imperial Units in the US as the 1959 revision eradicated a number of the differences between the two systems).
US Customary units were based on English units at the time of US independence and hence had many slight differences in definitions from imperial units.
Imperial units were used across the British Empire and hence most English speaking countries used this system at one time or another, though all have now adopted the metric system, with only Canada still legally allowing the use of imperial units, although they have officially adopted metric units.
