How to Convert Yards to Centimeters

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

To convert a yard measurement to a centimeter measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One yard is equal to 91.44 centimeters, so use this simple formula to convert:

centimeters = yards × 91.44

The length in centimeters is equal to the yards multiplied by 91.44.

For example, here's how to convert 5 yards to centimeters using the formula above.
5 yd = (5 × 91.44) = 457.2 cm

Our inch fraction calculator can add yards and centimeters together and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial and SI metric values.

Yards and centimeters are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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.[1]

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.

Centimeters

One centimeter is equal to one-hundredth (1/100) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/299,792,458 second time interval.

The centimeter, or centimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for 10-2. Centimeters can be abbreviated as cm, for example 1 centimeter can be written as 1 cm.

Metric rulers typically have 30 cm, which are represented by 30 large tick marks. To get a rough idea of the actual length of a centimeter, a standard pencil is just about 1cm thick.

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.

If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers, which include both imperial and metric measurements.
