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

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

Length_{(Fathoms)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.09090909094234181

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 fathoms, i.e., Length_{(Fathoms)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this distance from chains to Fathoms.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 20

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains to fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.09090909094234181

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 20 / 0.09090909094234181

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 220

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **20 ch** is equal to **220 fath**.

The length is **220 fath**, in fathoms.

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

Convert this distance from chains to Fathoms.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains to fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.09090909094234181

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 15 / 0.09090909094234181

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 165

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 ch** is equal to **165 fath**.

The length is **165 fath**, in fathoms.

## 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.

## Fathoms

A fathom is a unit of length used primarily in maritime contexts to measure water depth. One fathom is equivalent to 6 feet or approximately 1.8288 meters.

The fathom is defined as 6 feet, making it a convenient measurement for nautical and maritime applications, particularly for depth soundings and underwater measurements.

Fathoms are commonly used in navigation, fishing, and marine activities to describe the depth of water. The unit provides a practical measurement for underwater distances and has historical significance in maritime practices.
