Sixteen and Sixty: Ounces and Seconds

As I continued to work on the chapter on converting measurements, I found a couple of webpages that were helpful.

At Scientific American, I found “Why is a minute divided into 60 seconds, an hour into 60 minutes, yet there are only 24 hours in a day?”

At Math Is Fun, I found this page on US Standard Mass, which has information on ounces and pounds.
