One definition of an Amp is "The amount of current in that
will give a force of 2x10-7N/metre of wire length with 2
parallel wires that are 1m apart".
So, where is the Imperial version of that? Life is just too
easy for those electrical types of people.
That's a gap in the market if ever I
saw one. Simply
substitute ft-lb, 1 ft gap, BTU and so on into the definitions
and get Imps (Imperial amps), Voults, Columbias and so

||Excellent - this would show those damned cheese-
eating surrender-monkeys who's boss.
||I have always been uneasy about putting metric
electricity into English electrical appliances, and I
suspect it is responsible for many faults and failures
||The reigning monarch usually provides the physical attributes used to define Imperial measurements.
||When approached for assistance in defining electrical power, said petition brought forth by representatives of the Royal Guild of Electrickers and Pastry Chefs who had brought jumper-cables, Queen Victoria was recorded as stating:
||" Right then, let's make it the amount of electricity required to cause a Monarch to say 'Have that stupid b*gger flogged' " . . .
||Unfortunately for the "Wotsthatthen" unit (abbr. Wot) the RGEPC reps discovered they had left an important piece of equipment in their other pants.
||As far as I'm concerned, based on the stupidity
quotient, electricity is already in imperial units since
it's all backwards to start with.
||I knew somebody who had an MGB-GT with a positive ground battery.
||all the mg's did, din't they ?
