## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this depth from fathoms to Feet (US survey).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to feet (us survey) is:

Length_{(Feet (US survey))} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 0.16666700001185336

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Feet (US survey))} = 30 / 0.16666700001185336

Length_{(Feet (US survey))} = 179.9996

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 fath** is equal to **179.9996 ft**.

The length is **179.9996 ft**, in feet (us survey).

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

Convert this depth from fathoms to Feet (US survey).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 10

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to feet (us survey) is:

Length_{(Feet (US survey))} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 0.16666700001185336

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Feet (US survey))} = 10 / 0.16666700001185336

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

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **10 fath** is equal to **59.9999 ft**.

The length is **59.9999 ft**, in feet (us survey).

## 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.

## Feet (US survey)

A foot (US survey) is a unit of length used in land surveying and mapping in the United States. One foot (US survey) is defined as exactly 1200/3937 meters, which is approximately 0.3048006096 meters or about 0.3048 meters.

The US survey foot is slightly different from the international foot, which is defined as exactly 0.3048 meters. The difference is due to historical measurement standards and is used in specific contexts such as land surveying and engineering in the United States.

US survey feet are used primarily in the United States for property measurement, land surveying, and mapping, ensuring consistency in measurements within these fields.
