## What is the Formula to convert Chains to Kilometers?

The formula to convert given length from Chains to Kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 49.7096954

Substitute the given value of length in chains, i.e., Length_{(Chains)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in kilometers, i.e., Length_{(Kilometers)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a farmer's field is 20 chains long.

Convert this distance from chains to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 20

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 49.7096954

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Chains)} = 20** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 20 / 49.7096954

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 0.4023

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **20 ch** is equal to **0.4023 km**.

The length is **0.4023 km**, in kilometers.

### Consider that a surveyor measures a plot of land that is 15 chains in length.

Convert this distance from chains to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 49.7096954

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Chains)} = 15** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 15 / 49.7096954

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 0.3018

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 ch** is equal to **0.3018 km**.

The length is **0.3018 km**, in kilometers.

## Chains

A chain is a unit of length used primarily in land surveying and agriculture. One chain is equivalent to 66 feet or approximately 20.1168 meters.

The chain is defined as 66 feet, which is historically based on the length of a chain used in surveying practices and land measurement.

Chains are commonly used in land surveying for measuring distances, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom. The unit is useful for tasks such as plotting and dividing land and has historical significance in the development of surveying techniques.

## Kilometers

A kilometer (km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), equal to 0.6214 miles. One kilometer is one thousand meters.

The prefix "kilo-" means one thousand. A kilometer is defined by 1000 times the distance light travels in 1/299,792,458 seconds. This definition may change, but a kilometer will always be one thousand meters.

Kilometers are used to measure distances on land in most countries. However, the United States and the United Kingdom still often use miles. The UK has adopted the metric system, but miles are still used on road signs.
