## What is the Formula to convert Yards to Kilometers?

The formula to convert given length from Yards to Kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Yards)} × 0.0009144

Substitute the given value of length in yards, i.e., Length_{(Yards)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in kilometers, i.e., Length_{(Kilometers)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a high-end golf course has a fairway measuring 450 yards.

Convert this distance from yards to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in yards is:

Length_{(Yards)} = 450

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from yards to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Yards)} × 0.0009144

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Yards)} = 450** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 450 × 0.0009144

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 0.4115

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **450 yd** is equal to **0.4115 km**.

The length is **0.4115 km**, in kilometers.

### Consider that a luxury mansion has a backyard that extends 200 yards.

Convert this length from yards to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in yards is:

Length_{(Yards)} = 200

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from yards to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Yards)} × 0.0009144

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Yards)} = 200** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 200 × 0.0009144

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 0.1829

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **200 yd** is equal to **0.1829 km**.

The length is **0.1829 km**, in kilometers.

## Yards

A yard (symbol: yd) is a unit of length commonly used in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. One yard is equal to 0.9144 meters.

The yard originated from various units used in medieval England. Its current definition is based on the international agreement of 1959, which standardized it to exactly 0.9144 meters.

Yards are often used to measure distances in sports fields, textiles, and land. Despite the global shift to the metric system, the yard remains in use in these countries.

## Kilometers

A kilometer (km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), equal to 0.6214 miles. One kilometer is one thousand meters.

The prefix "kilo-" means one thousand. A kilometer is defined by 1000 times the distance light travels in 1/299,792,458 seconds. This definition may change, but a kilometer will always be one thousand meters.

Kilometers are used to measure distances on land in most countries. However, the United States and the United Kingdom still often use miles. The UK has adopted the metric system, but miles are still used on road signs.
