Meters and feet are used in many mathematical statistics, common units of length. A good understanding of each unit of assessment for conversion to other units.
The international system or the metric system
The metric system, which is used as the name suggests, "Metro" as a standard for the measurement of length. As such, other units of length in the metric system for a multiple or fraction of a meter. Some of these measures is inches, millimeters and kilometers.
In principle, be standardized metric unit of Academy of Sciences. This unit is compared with the distance between two points on a bar of platinum iridium. This distance is the millionth part of a tenth of the distance between the North Pole and Ecuador as a line along the meridian of Paris.
1983, the standard for metric changed. A meter is now the distance traveled by light in free space in a series of 1/299, 792, 458 of a second.
The English system of measurement
"Feet" ("foot"-plural) is the common system in the United States in a non-international measurement, part of the English system and is used in imperial units. Foot measurement is not consistent in every system of measurement. In comparison with the Metro, the size of a foot in any part of a quarter to one third of a meter. With the international standard makes a standard size on foot a yard 12 inches and three feet.
How to convert from meters to feet
In order to ensure a conversion factor in the clear for meters and feet, the foot as an international standard for the conversion. If you convert meters to feet, it is necessary, use the following relationship: one meter is equal to 3.28 feet. Therefore, for each measure in meters multiply a only to do with 3.28 ft.
Note: If the action is given in metric units, this must be done first before proceeding with the conversion to feet to meters. For example, such a measure in inches in the first place should be divided into 100 before can be multiplied by the factor: 3.28, whereas a device in the box must be first multiplied by 1000 before.
There are several formulas, scientific measurements in feet factors required. This is one of the biggest benefits to convert from meters to feet. Also information on conversion factors a switch between units of measurement with ease.
