How to convert

1 chain (ch) = 0.0201168 kilometer (km). Chain (ch) is a unit of Length used in Standard system. Kilometer (km) is a unit of Length used in Metric system.

Chain: A Unit of Length

The chain is a unit of length that is equal to 66 feet or 22 yards or 4 rods or 100 links. It is part of the US customary and imperial measurement systems. It is used for measuring land, especially in surveying and mapping. The symbol for chain is ch. There are 10 chains in a furlong, and 80 chains in one statute mile. An acre is the area of 10 square chains. The unit is named after the chain, a measuring device that was invented by Edmund Gunter, a clergyman and mathematician, in the 17th century. The chain is also sometimes called a Gunter’s chain, a surveyor’s chain or a land chain. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, usage and conversion of the chain as a unit of length.

How to Convert

The chain can be converted to other units of length by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert chains to other units of length in the US customary system, the imperial system and the SI system:

  • To convert chains to feet, multiply by 66. For example, 10 ch = 10 × 66 = 660 ft.
  • To convert chains to yards, multiply by 22. For example, 10 ch = 10 × 22 = 220 yd.
  • To convert chains to miles, divide by 80. For example, 10 ch = 10 / 80 = 0.125 mi.
  • To convert chains to centimeters, multiply by 2011.68. For example, one ch = one × 2011.68 = 2011.68 cm.
  • To convert chains to meters, multiply by 20.1168. For example, one ch = one × 20.1168 = 20.1168 m.
  • To convert chains to kilometers, divide by 49.7097. For example, 10 ch = 10 / 49.7097 = 0.2012 km.

  • Kilometer - Unit of Distance / Length

    Unit Symbol / Abbreviation: km

    Where the unit used in the World:

    The kilometer is used as a unit used to measure distances or lengths.
    It's a standard measure for travelled distances, geographical distances and maps in most countries excluding the USA and the United Kingdom where mile is still used for this purpose.
    between geographical locations on land, and in most countries is the official unit for this purpose. Primary exceptions are the United Kingdom, Liberia, Myanmar and the United States of America, where the mile remains as standard as a part of imperial system.

    Definition of the Unit:

    The kilometer (kilometre in UK spelling) is a unit of length/distance in the metric system (SI Unit system) equivalent to one thousand meters.

    1 km is equivalent to 0.62137 miles.

    • 1 yard = 0.000914 km
    • 1 foot = 0.000305 km
    • 1 inch = 0.0000254 km
    • Units of length in the metric SI system are based on multiples or fractions of a meter.
    • There are measurements of length/distance in the metric SI system greater than a kilometer that can be expressed in terms of kilometres.

    1 km is equivalent to 0.621371 mi.

    The kilometer is unit of length in the metric SI system and is equivalent to one thousand metres.
