My question is, is it forbidden to have a connection not compatible with the metric?
Senseless, not allowedOrodruin said:What do you mean by ”forbidden”?
Yes it is strictly forbidden. It is in the Geneva convention.kent davidge said:My question is, is it forbidden to have a connection not compatible with the metric?

To expand on that, it is perfectly possible to have a connection without your manifold having a metric at all so quite clearly metric compatibility cannot be a constraint on a general connection. There are many possible meanings of ”forbidden” or ”senseless” depending on the context of the use of those words. Hence my request for specification.romsofia said:The answer to your question is no, connections don't always have metric compatibility.
Metric compatibility refers to the ability for different units of measurement to be converted into one another using the metric system. This includes units such as meters, kilograms, and liters, which are based on the decimal system.
Metric compatibility is important because it allows for consistency and accuracy in measurements across different countries and industries. It also simplifies conversions and calculations, making it easier to compare and analyze data.
In most countries, the use of the metric system is required by law for trade and commerce. This includes the compatibility of measurements used in labeling and packaging for consumer products.
If two units are not metric compatible, it can result in errors and confusion in measurements. This can lead to incorrect data and potentially dangerous situations, especially in fields such as medicine and engineering.
While the use of the metric system is widely adopted, there are some exceptions to metric compatibility in certain industries and countries. For example, the United States still commonly uses the imperial system for everyday measurements, but even in these cases, there are conversions to metric units available.
