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

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

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Yards)} / 21.9999999899416

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 chains, i.e., Length_{(Chains)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this distance from yards to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in yards is:

Length_{(Yards)} = 450

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from yards to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Yards)} / 21.9999999899416

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Chains)} = 450 / 21.9999999899416

Length_{(Chains)} = 20.4545

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **450 yd** is equal to **20.4545 ch**.

The length is **20.4545 ch**, in chains.

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

Convert this length from yards to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in yards is:

Length_{(Yards)} = 200

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from yards to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Yards)} / 21.9999999899416

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Chains)} = 200 / 21.9999999899416

Length_{(Chains)} = 9.0909

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **200 yd** is equal to **9.0909 ch**.

The length is **9.0909 ch**, in chains.

## 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.

## Chains

A chain is a unit of length used primarily in land surveying and agriculture. One chain is equivalent to 66 feet or approximately 20.1168 meters.

The chain is defined as 66 feet, which is historically based on the length of a chain used in surveying practices and land measurement.

Chains are commonly used in land surveying for measuring distances, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom. The unit is useful for tasks such as plotting and dividing land and has historical significance in the development of surveying techniques.
