## measuring rates with IDC

this document describes AAT ICAS methods for measuring rates with units derived from the Inter-Dial Clock (IDC) system and the International System of Units (SI). please also see AAT ICAS 1300, AAT ICAS 2023, and AAT ICAS 3130 for additional information.

IDC prefixes (both metric- and clock-derived) can accommodate the practicable expression of time durations in terms of a variety of different values that are coherently related to a main unit of one day. IDC methods specify the use of metric prefixes from SI. moreover, the IDC derived clock unit prefixes (tikochron and tokochron) provide additional methods for the practicable expression of time durations more closely approximating the scale of the SI fixed-second (and also coherently related to a main unit of one fixed day).

as a basic common minimal unit of time, the tikochron represents a practicable duration that is subjectively immediate. the unit may be useful for envisioning and for comparing a variety of different rates, yet not so long as to introduce certain subjective influences on the measurement or determination of rates relating to scale or attention span.

## measuring speed in terms of a meter solana scale

a basic measure can be used to explain many scenarios of measure in terms of whole or simple numbers . toward this basic units of distance and time are useful for measuring rates of speed . the measure of 'meter per second' ( m/s ) is readily compared in terms of basic concepts of 'meter' and 'second' . the measure of 'meter solana' ( m⋅so ) facilitates ready comparison of speeds with reference to decimalized representations of a coordinated day of 86400 second .

symbol note: 1 tikochron (tiXn) is equal to 0.864 second (s). 1 meter solana (m·so) is an alternative representation of equal quantity of 1 meter per tik (m/tiXn) [ Inter-Dial Clock, Integrated Chronological Applications System, Alliance for the Advancement of Technology, aatideas.org ]
