## What is the Formula to convert Fathoms to Astronomical Units?

The formula to convert given length from Fathoms to Astronomical Units is:

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 81801110408.2069

Substitute the given value of length in fathoms, i.e., Length_{(Fathoms)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in astronomical units, i.e., Length_{(Astronomical Units)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a ship anchors in water that is 30 fathoms deep.

Convert this depth from fathoms to Astronomical Units.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to astronomical units is:

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 81801110408.2069

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = 30 / 81801110408.2069

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = 3.667432e-10

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 fath** is equal to **3.667432e-10 AU**.

The length is **3.667432e-10 AU**, in astronomical units.

### Consider that a diver descends to a depth of 10 fathoms.

Convert this depth from fathoms to Astronomical Units.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 10

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to astronomical units is:

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 81801110408.2069

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Fathoms)} = 10** in the above formula.

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = 10 / 81801110408.2069

Length_{(Astronomical Units)} = 1.222477e-10

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **10 fath** is equal to **1.222477e-10 AU**.

The length is **1.222477e-10 AU**, in astronomical units.

## 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.

## Astronomical Units

An astronomical unit (AU) is a unit of length used in astronomy to measure distances within our solar system. One astronomical unit is equivalent to approximately 149,597,870.7 kilometers or about 92,955,807.3 miles.

The astronomical unit is defined as the mean distance between the Earth and the Sun.

Astronomical units are used to express distances between celestial bodies within the solar system, such as the distances between planets and their orbits. They provide a convenient scale for describing and comparing distances in a way that is more manageable than using kilometers or miles.
