Casa Grande Dispatch (Newspaper) - December 21, 1970, Casa Grande, Arizona New concept a metric lock Casa Grande Ian dispatch monday december 21 1970 rotation one Day to Circle 1440 Tim minutes equal angular measurement minutes a ratio of 15 to 1 this suggests 15 degrees of angular surface rotation equal one Frost says however the relationship Between angular measurement seconds and time seconds is one to these terms used extensively in mathematics science and engineering Are confusing they relate to Dif Ferent measurement units having varying ratios to each other frosts Angl time measurement proposal simplifies calculations by introducing new terminology he suggests a system recognizing the Circle As a fundamental unchangeable unit called a metric system prefixes and suffixes designate multiples and fractions of the Basic unit he divides the Cir into equal parts or Mili circus so i in equal one Cir 1100 Mic equal Mic in this division a right Angle 90 degrees contains 250 Mic the sum of the angles of a Triangle equals 500 Mic 180 trigonometric functions because they Are relationships Between the sides and the enclosed angles remain the same however new tables must be printed to read from 0mic to 125 Mic 0 degrees to 45 complicated interpolations Are no longer Frost observes Milicic fractions Are always Deci Mally expressed and respective values quickly his innovative time measurement system recognizes one average Earth rotation duration As a natural Basic unit called a Here a Mil Rota is of a Rota which multiples and fractions expressed Deci Mally Mir equal one Rota 110 and Mir equal Mir this system provides the direct relationship Between angular and time measure he explains during a single Lime Mil Rota the Earth turns through one Milicic of angular obviously this Calls for a new face for time and Frost has designed such a device a the marc1 i of dimes metric lock its face is Euc 11 n imm diagrammatic of one Earth Tempe our present Angut time and geographical location measurement system is based of the 380 degrees Circle specific reasons for this division Are lost to Antiquity but the babylonians were Likely instigators As a result ancient astronomers Mist kingly adopted the monday Earth year and assumed hat the suns daily pm Gress represented one angular degree the approximation was acceptable to those Early mathematicians the Choice was convenient because it offered a Large number of Small divisors however Wewt sufficed for Babylon inadequate for us this modern age of computations demands extremely precise values and rapid con versions difficult when computing the 360 disagrees Circle and associate Phenomena although Circle divisions attuned to Decimal calculating would enhance problems solving significant changes Pavc not occurred since babylonian and Oreck times or Melvin Frost assistant professor of geography at Arizona state University suggests adopting a Decimal system for calculating angles time and geographical locations this would eliminate con fusing terminology and permit exact calculations without cumbersome he explains it would establish easily Learned relationships Between All measurement the present angular time measurement method is based on the Sevag Tsimal system multiples of the 360 degrees Circle includes six 60 degrees parts each degree is divided into 60 equal minutes which Are further broken into 60 equal seconds Here the system collapses because further divisions Are expressed Deci Mally Why not utilize Decimals entirely Frost asks this calculating system is More scientifically convenient and accurate than the Sevag Tsimal the established number system metric weights and measures and our monetary system illustrate the Decimals advantage in calculations conflicting terminology inherent in present time angular and temperature measurements spawns con the Asu geographer notes this is especially True in calculating minutes and seconds of time and these Are related but under the existing system their values Are not easily converted from one to another in comparing one Earth us work tour third a healthy Hirl right for give to rotation with the Rota hand

darkness period three hands turning clock Wise Are time he states beginning at Midnight All hands Point downward at the position the Rota shortest hand sweeps once around the clock during a single Earth rotation 24 hour the Decirota hand moves ten times while the Mil Rota longest hand completed the circles inscribed on the clock face Are numbered from 0 to 0 to 100 and 0 to 10 with ten ticks Between each number the Mil Rota hand sweeps out ticks during one Earth rotation by comparing the two Short hands with the Mil Rotas momentary position time lapse since Midnight is readily observed and calculated to 01 Mil Rota this is of a second in the currently used time system the present method of calculating geographical location is also based on angular measurements of the 360 degrees Circle Earth positions Are located by degrees minutes and seconds North or South of the Equator and East or West of Greenwich England frosts proposed geographical location determination uses the
