## 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 5,000 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.^{[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.

## 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.^{[2]}

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.
