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

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

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.003787878789495151

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 handbreadth, i.e., Length_{(Handbreadth)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this distance from chains to Handbreadth.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 20

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains to handbreadth is:

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.003787878789495151

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 20 / 0.003787878789495151

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 5280

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **20 ch** is equal to **5280 handbreadth**.

The length is **5280 handbreadth**, in handbreadth.

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

Convert this distance from chains to Handbreadth.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from chains to handbreadth is:

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.003787878789495151

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 15 / 0.003787878789495151

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 3960

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 ch** is equal to **3960 handbreadth**.

The length is **3960 handbreadth**, in handbreadth.

## 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.

## Handbreadth

A handbreadth is a historical unit of length used to measure small distances, typically based on the width of a hand. One handbreadth is approximately equivalent to 4 inches or about 0.1016 meters.

The handbreadth is defined as the width of a person's hand, measured from the edge of the thumb to the edge of the little finger when the hand is spread out. This unit was used for practical measurements in various contexts, including textiles and construction.

Handbreadths were used in historical measurement systems for assessing lengths and dimensions where precise tools were not available. Although less common today, the unit provides historical context for traditional measurement practices and everyday use in different cultures.
