## How to Convert Yards to Kilometers

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:

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.

Yards and kilometers 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.

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.

## 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.

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.
