meter and meter
difference between metre and metet
Meter is the typical American English spelling for the fundamental unit of length measure. It is defined as the length of the path traveled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second. Metre is the typical British English spelling for the same unit of measure.
Although metre is the typical British spelling, meter is also used in British English. And while meter is the commonplace American spelling, metre is often used in American technical writing, especially when necessary to differientiate between length (metre) and instrumentation (say, an electrical meter).
I hope this helps.
