The Arch Series Paper Sizes is usually used for architectural purposes such as the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings or any other structures. This series includes Arch A, Arch B, Arch C, Arch D, Arch E1, Arch E, Arch 1, Arch 2, Arch 3, Arch 4, Arch 5, Arch 6, in unit of measurements in mm, cm, and inch. The current standard sizes are unique for some countries.
Paper size is a dimension or the length and width of a paper in unit measurements such as mm (millimeter), and can also be determined into units of cm (centimeter) or inch (inches). There is a corresponding series of paper sizes used for architectural purposes defined in the same standard, ANSI/ASME Y14.1, which is usually abbreviated “Arch”.
List of Contents:
The Arch Series Paper Sizes Standard serially as follow Arch A, Arch B, Arch C, Arch D, Arch E, Arch E1, Arch 1, Arch 2, Arch 3, Arch 4, Arch 5, Arch 6. This series also shares the property that bisecting each size produces two of the size below, with alternating aspect ratios. It may be preferred by North American architects because the aspect ratios (4:3 and 3:2) are ratios of small integers, unlike their ANSI (or ISO) counterparts. Furthermore, the aspect ratio 4:3 matches the traditional aspect ratio for computer displays.

Unit of Measurements
A Unit of measurement is a definite magnitude of a value, defined and adopted by convention that is used as a standard for measurement of the same kind of value. Any other quantity of that kind can be expressed as a multiple of the unit of measurement.
mm stands for millimeter (American spelling) or millimetre (SI spelling) is the size of the unit of length in the metric system, that is the basis of the length measurement. 1 mm is equal to 0.1 cm.
cm stand for centimetre (international spelling as used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures) or centimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one hundredth of a meter. cm being the International System of Units prefix for a factor of one per a hundred. cm is the base unit of length for cgs (centimetre–gram–second) system of units.
Inch (plural: inches, abbreviation: in or ″) is a unit of length in the imperial and United States customary systems of measurement, now formally equal to one per thirty six yard but usually understood as one per twelve of a foot. Derived from the Roman uncia, “inch” is also sometimes used to translate related units in other measurement systems. Traditional standards for the exact length of an inch have varied in the past, but since the adoption of the international yard during the 1950s and 1960s it has been based on the metric system and reckoned as exactly 2.54 cm.
