## Kilometers

One kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters, which are defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a ^{1}/_{299,792,458} second time interval.^{[1]}

The kilometer, or kilometre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 10^{3}. Kilometers can be abbreviated as *km*; for example, 1 kilometer can be written as 1 km.

## Yards

The yard is a unit of length measurement equal to 3 feet or 36 inches.
The international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters.^{[2]}

The yard is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Yards can be abbreviated as *yd*; for example, 1 yard can be written as 1 yd.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.
