Length Measurement Conversions


To help with some common length measurement conversions, we have included a few conversion options below to assist in converting between different units of measurement. Give them a try and see if they can help you with your project or task.

Conversion Options:

  • Calculator
  • Google
  • Tables

It’s always a good idea to try more than one conversion method to verify your results and to double-check the calculation used for the method.


Calculator
Conversion calculators provide a quick and easy way to convert between various units of measure.

To use this simple length calculator:

  • From the list on the left, select the unit of measure to convert from
  • Enter the quantity in the “From” box
  • From the list on the right, select the unit of measure to convert to
  • The results will be show in the box below the calculator

Google
You can use Google’s quick and easy unit conversion feature to convert a number of different units of measure. To use the feature, just enter the measurements to convert in the Google search box using a normal language format, and click Search.

A really nice feature of this option is, if you use a Smartphone with internet access, you will always have access to a universal measurement calculator.

Try a couple of examples:

  • 3 feet to yards
  • 1 mile to km
  • 10 in to millimeter
  • 1 pound to grams

After you get your measurement results, you can also use this Google technique as a calculator, if needed. So, if you got your measure and you need to multiply the results to get your end amount, just do it in the same Google search box.

Try this example using a Google search box.

Find the number of inches in 15 yards:

  • Type: 1 yard to inches
  • Results: 36 inches
  • Type: 36 * 15
  • Results: 540 inches



Tables
You can always use the old standby to convert different measurements – tables. Below are a few standard length conversion tables to convert some of the more common measurements.

For the metric system, here are the basic definitions, showing how each varies by a multiple of ten from the base unit of a meter. Every value in the metric system can easily be converted to another in the metric system by simply manipulating the decimal point.

  • Kilometer = 1000 meters
  • Hectometer = 100 meters
  • Decameter = 10 meters
  • Meter = base unit of length
  • Decimeter = 1/10 meter
  • Centimeter = 1/100 meter
  • Millimeter = 1/1000 meter

For the Imperial, or English system, here are the base conversion factors:

  • Foot = 12 inches
  • Yard = 3 feet
  • Mile = 1760 yards = 5280 feet

For measures below an inch, measurements use fractions of an inch (1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 etc.)
