Distance converter is a convenient tool for converting distance units into each other within the framework of one measuring system or several at once.
Convert distance units
The presented distance converter is one of the richest in the number of methods for measuring lengths available in its composition. You can find out what the distance in kilometers is in miles or nautical leagues, American lands or British yards, whether Chinese or Japanese ri and even in astronomical parsecs. Distance Converter - an assistant in work, study and communication with foreigners. The metric system for measuring lengths covers a fairly wide range of different units that allow you to find the size of the smallest particles and at the same time measure the distance from one point on the globe to another. The source of international SI was a quarter of the earth's radian, divided by 10 million, which was called the "meter". On this basis, the “archival” meter was cast from gold, which is stored in Paris, where the metric system was born. In addition to it, the English system for measuring length, which can be found in the UK and the USA, does not lose its relevance to this day. At one time, many units were borrowed from it in the Old Russian system, for example, foot and inch, in order to simplify the trade relations between England and Russia under Peter I. Certain industries, such as astronomy and navigation, also use their own distance units. In addition, the length converter includes specific typographic units for measuring length that are found only in print. How to use the distance converter: To easily and quickly transfer values from one system to another, enter a number in the corresponding field, for example, 120 km opposite the line Kilometer (km) and press Enter. You will receive an exhaustive list of options for this distance in most measurement systems used, including historical and highly specialized, for example, astronomical and optical.
