## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a luxury yacht cruises 120 nautical miles on a journey.

Convert this distance from nautical miles to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in nautical miles (international) is:

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = 120

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from nautical miles (international) to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} / 0.01086220294964833

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Nautical miles (International))} = 120** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains)} = 120 / 0.01086220294964833

Length_{(Chains)} = 11047.4828

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **120 nmi** is equal to **11047.4828 ch**.

The length is **11047.4828 ch**, in chains.

### Consider that an aircraft travels 500 nautical miles to reach its destination.

Convert this distance from nautical miles to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in nautical miles (international) is:

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = 500

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from nautical miles (international) to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} / 0.01086220294964833

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Nautical miles (International))} = 500** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains)} = 500 / 0.01086220294964833

Length_{(Chains)} = 46031.1782

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **500 nmi** is equal to **46031.1782 ch**.

The length is **46031.1782 ch**, in chains.
