Length Units Conversions

The most common definition of length is that it is the measurement of the extent of something along its greatest dimension. That, of course, is for physical entities. Length is also used to describe passing of time, but that is not covered here (unless you are measuring the length of a timeline chart).











Standard units = Meter (m) for metric, foot (ft) for English

  inch foot mile centimeter meter kilometer
1 in = 1 8.333 * 10-2 1.578 * 10-5 2.540 2.540 * 10-2 2.540 * 10-5
1 ft = 12 1 1.894 * 10-4 30.48 0.304 8 3.048 * 10-4
1 mi = 6.336 * 104 5 280 1 1.609 * 105 160 9 1.609
1 cm = 0.393 7 3.281 * 10-2 6.214 * 10-6 1 10-2 10-5
1 m = 39.37 3.281 6.214 * 10-4 100 1 10-3
1 km = 3.93 7 * 104 3 281 0.621 * 104 105 1 000 1

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
