Explanation:
Stellen Sie Sich vor, auf ein Acre Wiese fällt Wasser in Höhe von einem Fuß.

Das ist dann schon die Einheit, die Sie suchen.

Es ist mir allerdings zu mühsam, diese Menge heute noch in Hektoliter usw. umzurechnen! (ich wünsche Jean Alési alles Gute zum 201. und voraussichtlich letztem GP)

Die Einheit wird in den USA viel gebraucht (z.B. in der Landwirtschaft)
