The ancient Egyptians used a unit of measurement called the cubit, which was the length of a human forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. The international standard unit of length is the meter, and it was originally based on a survey of a section of the Earth's circumference. The first thermometer was invented by Galileo Galilei in 1592, and it was made of a glass tube filled with water.
