 For calculate the astronomic distances they are used particular measures: astronomical unit (U.A.) = medium distance earth-sun, correspondent to appr. 149 500 000 Km (are used in the measures of the solar system). light year = distance covered from the light in a year (vel. light ~300 000 km to sec. that it corresponds to 9 million million km.). It is equivalent to 63 000 U.A., therefore 63 000 times the earth-sun distance. parsec = 3,2558 light years. It is represented from the distance to which the beam of the orbit of the Earth (approximately the medium distance earth-sun) appears under an angle of 1 ".

#### ancient measures of Roman length

1 foot = 0.296 m
1 passus = 5 foot = 1.48 m
1 stadium = 125 passus = 185 m
1 mile = 8 stadium = 1480 m

#### nautical measures

6 foots = 1 fathom
100 fathoms = 1 cable length
6000 foot = 1 nautical mile
