## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this distance from chains to Rods (US survey).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 20

**Formula:**

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

Length_{(Rods (US survey))} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.2500005001549404

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Rods (US survey))} = 20 / 0.2500005001549404

Length_{(Rods (US survey))} = 79.9998

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **20 ch** is equal to **79.9998 rd**.

The length is **79.9998 rd**, in rods (us survey).

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

Convert this distance from chains to Rods (US survey).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = 15

**Formula:**

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

Length_{(Rods (US survey))} = Length_{(Chains)} / 0.2500005001549404

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Rods (US survey))} = 15 / 0.2500005001549404

Length_{(Rods (US survey))} = 59.9999

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 ch** is equal to **59.9999 rd**.

The length is **59.9999 rd**, in rods (us survey).

## 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.

## Rods (US survey)

A rod (US survey) is a unit of length used primarily in land surveying in the United States. One US survey rod is equivalent to exactly 16.5 feet or approximately 5.0292 meters.

The US survey rod is defined as 16.5 feet, based on historical surveying practices and used for measuring and plotting land.

Rods (US survey) are used in land surveying, property measurement, and agricultural practices in the United States. The unit ensures consistency and accuracy in measuring shorter distances within these fields.
