Length conversions are a must for you. There is no denying from that.
We use these conversions everywhere from measuring the field to drawing a line. Thus, I am here to provide you the length conversion chart. It will seem to be pretty helpful.
You may know that there are many units of measurement of length. But to have uniformity in measurement Standard units are made.
The standard unit of length is “meter” denoted by “m”.
Following is the length conversion chart:
|1 centimeter (cm)||=||10 millimeter(mm)|
|1 decimeter (dm)||=||10 centimeter(cm)|
|1 meter (m)||=||= 10 decimeter (dm) |
= 100 centimeter(cm)
= 1000 millimeter(mm)
|1 decameter (dam)||=||= 10 meter(m) |
|1 hectometer (hm)||=||10 decameter |
= 100 meter
|1 kilometer (km)||=||= 10 hectometer |
= 1000 meter
Other important conversions :
|1 inch||=||2.54 cm |
|1 foot||=|| 12 inches |
|1 yard||=|| |
= 3 feet
|1 mile||=||1760 yards |
= 5280 feet
= 1.609 km
The length conversion chart will be useful for conversion between units of length.
In day to day life, the meter, kilometer, and centimeter are mostly used.
Foot and inches are commonly used in height measurement. Yards units are used in the measurement of fields.
Now let us learn the method to convert from one unit to another.
Look at the following diagram
We know the gap between two consecutive units is 10.
i.e 1 cm = 10 mm, 1 dm = 10 cm , 1 m = 10 dm and so on.
To convert bigger units into smaller units we will “multiply”. On the other hand, to convert smaller units into bigger units we will “divide”.
