## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a land survey recorded a boundary line of 25 chains (US survey).

Convert this distance from chains (US survey) to Span (cloth).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains (us survey) is:

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = 25

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains (us survey) to span (cloth) is:

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = Length_{(Chains (US survey))} / 0.011363613645472273

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Chains (US survey))} = 25** in the above formula.

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = 25 / 0.011363613645472273

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = 2200.0044

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **25 ch** is equal to **2200.0044 span**.

The length is **2200.0044 span**, in span (cloth).

### Consider that a railway track section measures 30 chains (US survey).

Convert this distance from chains (US survey) to Span (cloth).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains (us survey) is:

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains (us survey) to span (cloth) is:

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = Length_{(Chains (US survey))} / 0.011363613645472273

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Chains (US survey))} = 30** in the above formula.

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = 30 / 0.011363613645472273

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = 2640.0053

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 ch** is equal to **2640.0053 span**.

The length is **2640.0053 span**, in span (cloth).
