How to Convert Yards to Kilometers

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 kilometer measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One yard is equal to 0.000914 kilometers, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilometers = yards × 0.000914

The length in kilometers is equal to the yards multiplied by 0.000914.

For example, here's how to convert 5 yards to kilometers using the formula above.
5 yd = (5 × 0.000914) = 0.004572 km

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


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.

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.


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 103. Kilometers can be abbreviated as km, for example 1 kilometer can be written as 1 km.

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.
