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

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

Length_{(Kens)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 1.158333333513394

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 kens, i.e., Length_{(Kens)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this depth from fathoms to Kens.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to kens is:

Length_{(Kens)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 1.158333333513394

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Kens)} = 30 / 1.158333333513394

Length_{(Kens)} = 25.8993

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 fath** is equal to **25.8993 ken**.

The length is **25.8993 ken**, in kens.

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

Convert this depth from fathoms to Kens.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 10

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to kens is:

Length_{(Kens)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 1.158333333513394

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Kens)} = 10 / 1.158333333513394

Length_{(Kens)} = 8.6331

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **10 fath** is equal to **8.6331 ken**.

The length is **8.6331 ken**, in kens.
