## Converting Length Measurements

Length is the distance of the longest horizontal dimension of an object. If the object is a rectangle, length would be the distance of the longest edge of the rectangle. Height is considered the distance of the vertical dimension of an object and width is the distance of the shortest horizontal dimension of an object. Cambridge Dictionary defines length as the measurement of something from end to end. Length is measured using distance units, such as inches, feet, miles, centimeters, meters, or kilometers. To convert measurements of length from one unit to another, convert the unit to a base unit with a known conversion formula, then convert from the base unit to the target unit of measurement. Our formulas convert the length unit to meters, then converts from meters to the destination unit. Math is Fun has a number of unit conversion formulas if you want to convert your units of measurment yourself. The unit conversion tools above will convert length from one unit of measure to another, automatically. See some of our measurement resources, such as our inch fraction calculator, printable tape measure or our printable rulers.
