## How to convert

1 mile (mi) = 1609.34 meter (m). Mile (mi) is a unit of Length used in Standard system. Meter (m) is a unit of Length used in Metric system.

## Mile: A Unit of Length

The mile is a unit of length that is equal to 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards. It is based on the older English unit of length that was used before the adoption of the metric system. The mile is also a derived unit in the British imperial and US customary systems of measurement. The symbol for mile is mi or m.

The mile is most commonly used when expressing distances on land or in air travel. The mile is also used for measuring speed, such as miles per hour (mph). The mile is sometimes distinguished from other types of miles, such as the nautical mile or the geographical mile, by using the term statute mile.

In this article, we will explore the definition, history, usage and conversion of the mile as a unit of length.

## Example Conversions of Mile to Other Units

The mile can be converted to other units of length by using different factors and formulas. Here are some examples of conversion for different types of units:

• To convert a mile to feet, multiply by 5,280:

1 mi x 5,280 = 5,280 ft

• To convert a mile to yards, multiply by 1,760:

1 mi x 1,760 = 1,760 yd

• To convert a mile to meters, multiply by 1,609.344:

1 mi x 1,609.344 = 1,609.344 m

• To convert a mile to kilometers, multiply by 1.609344:

1 mi x 1.609344 = 1.609344 km

• To convert a mile to nautical miles, divide by 1.150779:

1 mi / 1.150779 = 0.868976 nmi

• To convert a mile to geographical miles, divide by 0.869:

1 mi / 0.869 = 1.151 mi

• To convert a foot to miles, divide by 5,280:

1 ft / 5,280 = 0.000189 mi

• To convert a yard to miles, divide by 1,760:

1 yd / 1,760 = 0.000568 mi

• To convert a meter to miles, divide by 1,609.344:

1 m / 1,609.344 = 0.000621 mi

• To convert a kilometer to miles, divide by 1.609344:

1 km / 1.609344 = 0.621371 mi

• To convert a nautical mile to miles, multiply by 1.150779:

1 nmi x 1.150779 = 1.150779 mi

• To convert a geographical mile to miles, multiply by 0.869:

1 mi x 0.869 = 0.869 mi

## 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).
