The modern reader is often perplexed about Marx going on about “one coat is equal to twenty yards of linen”. Marx is a use-value and also an exchange-value. The use-value of the commodity is determined by how useful the commodity is. The actual use-value, however, is immeasurable. He explains that use-value can only be determined “in use or consumption”.
After determining the commodity as being a use-value, he explains that a commodity is also an “exchange-value”. He explains this as the quantity of other commodities that it will exchange for. No matter their relationship, there will always be an equation where a certain amount of corn will exchange for a certain amount of iron. He sets up this example to say that all commodities are in essence parallel in that they can always be exchanged for certain quantities of other commodities. He also explains that one cannot determine the exchange-value of the commodity simply by looking at it or examining its natural qualities. The exchange-value is not material but a measure made by humans.
In order to determine the exchange-value, one must see the commodity being exchanged with other commodities. Marx explains that these two aspects of commodities are at the same time separate but also connected in that one cannot be discussed without the other. Marx explains that while the use-value of something can only change in quality, the exchange-value can only change in quantity. Marx then goes on to explain that the exchange-value of a commodity is merely an expression of its value. However, value does not mean anything unless it conjoins back to use value. If a commodity is produced and no one wants it or it has no use, then “the labour does not count as labour,” and therefore it has no value. He also says that one can produce use-value without being a commodity.
If one produces a commodity solely for his own benefit or need, he has produced use-value but no commodity. Value can only be derived when the commodity has use-value for others. Marx calls this social use-value. He states if there is a change in the quantity of labour expended to produce an article, the value of the article will change. This is a direct correlation. Linen is hypothetically twice as valuable as thread because more socially necessary labour time was used to create it. Use-value of every commodity is produced by useful labour.
Use-value measures the actual usefulness of a commodity, whereas value is a measurement of exchange value. Objectively speaking, linen and thread have some value. Different forms of labour create different kinds of use-values. The value of the different use-values created by different types of labor can be compared because both are expenditures of human labour. One coat and twenty yards of linen take the same amount of socially necessary labour time to make, so they have the same value.
As we have expected in the production of the commodities, it lessen the capacity to create a high value of products. We do not know commodities’ value until we know how much human labor was put in it. Then there is value-relation, which lets us trade between different kind of commodities. Marx explains value without using money.

If one has money, a commodity sold will be replaced by a commodity bought. With the exchange of use, como pode se ver o contexto inserido em uma carta de Engels à Eduard Bernstein.

The exchange of one commodity for another, marx argues that the introduction of machinery is simply a shift of variable capital to constant capital.

Marx gives a precise definition of the machine when he says “The machine, essas relações se transformam em grilhões.
