How to convert 1 chain (ch) = 20.1168 meter (m).
Chain (ch) is a unit of Length used in Standard system.
Meter (m) 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.
Meter  Unit of Distance / Length
Unit Symbol / Abbreviation: m
Where the unit used in the World:
The meter is used as a unit to measure medium distances or lengths.
It's a standard measure for short distances (up to 1 km long), in real estate and construction, supply materials, vehicle and aircraft dimensions, short geographical distances and directions in most countries excluding the USA where foot and yard are still widely used for this purpose.
The meter is widely used in most countries and is the official unit for medium lengths and distances (for example, road signs in continental Europe show maximum vehicle hight in meters). Primary exceptions are the United States of America, and some countries where feet and yards are used in limited extent: the United Kingdom and Canada, where the yard remains in limited use as a part of imperial system (for example, yards are used on road signs for shorter distances in the United Kingdom and feet are widely used in construction and real estate in Canada).
Definition of the Unit:
The meter (metre in UK spelling) is a unit of length/distance in the metric system (SI Unit system) equivalent to the length of the path travelled by light during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second (in vacuum, defined since 1983).
1 m is equivalent to 3.28084 ft or 0.000621371 miles.
Equivalents in other units and scales:
 1 m = 1000 millimeters (mm)
 1 m = 100 centimeters (cm)
 1 m = 10 decimeters (dm)
 1 m = 0.001 kilometers (km)
 1 m = 3.28084 feet (ft)
 1 megameter = 1000000 m
 1 gigameter = 1000000000 m
 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 meter that can be expressed in terms of metres.
1 m is equivalent to 3.28084 ft or 1.09361 yd.
The meter is a unit of length in the metric SI system and is equivalent to the length of the path travelled by light during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second (in vacuum, defined since 1983).
Meters also can be marked as metres (in British English spelling).
