## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a river's depth is measured at 5 fathoms (US survey).

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

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms (us survey) is:

Length_{(Fathoms (US survey))} = 5

**Formula:**

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

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = Length_{(Fathoms (US survey))} / 10.999999991953263

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Fathoms (US survey))} = 5** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = 5 / 10.999999991953263

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = 0.4545

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **5 fath** is equal to **0.4545 ch**.

The length is **0.4545 ch**, in chains (us survey).

### Consider that a dock extends into the sea for 8 fathoms (US survey).

Convert this length from fathoms (US survey) to Chains (US survey).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms (us survey) is:

Length_{(Fathoms (US survey))} = 8

**Formula:**

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

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = Length_{(Fathoms (US survey))} / 10.999999991953263

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Fathoms (US survey))} = 8** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = 8 / 10.999999991953263

Length_{(Chains (US survey))} = 0.7273

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **8 fath** is equal to **0.7273 ch**.

The length is **0.7273 ch**, in chains (us survey).
