crisscrossing Science Episode 66: The Long and the Short of It
In this episode, Mike Crosser (professor of physics at Linfield College) and Chad Tillberg (professor of biology at Linfield College) continue to discuss how some units are defined. This time, the discussion is about length. We have come a long way from defining length based on body parts, and some of this progress is discussed.
For a similar discussion about the definition of units that focuses on time, see the Related Resource field below.
