Dave's Math Tables: Weights and Measures |

(Math | General | Weights and Measures | Lengths) |

Before you use this table, convert to the base measurement first, in that convert centi-meters to meters, convert kilo-grams to grams. In this way, I don't have to list every imaginable combination of metric units.

The notation 1.23**E + 4** stands for 1.23 x 10^{+4} = 0.000123.

_{from} \ ^{to} | = __ feet | = __ inches | = __ meters | = __ miles | = __ yards |

foot | 12 | 0.3048 | (1/5280) | (1/3) | |

inch | (1/12) | 0.0254 | (1/63360) | (1/36) | |

meter | 3.280839... | 39.37007... | E - 4 | 1.093613... | |

mile | 5280 | 63360 | 1609.344 | 1760 | |

yard | 3 | 36 | 0.9144 | (1/1760) |

Examples: foot =

**Useful Exact Length Relationships**

mile = 1760 yards = 5280 feet

yard = 3 feet = 36 inches

foot = 12 inches

inch = 2.54 centimeters
