pace

A unit of distance, in the United States, = 30 inches. In England, however, since at least the 12th century one pace = 60 inches (on the model of the Roman passus, which equalled 5 pes), and one step = 30 inches. To show that a unit is meant, in Great Britain the pace is sometimes called the geometrical pace.
