How to Convert Yards to Millimeters

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 millimeter measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio. One yard is equal to 914.4 millimeters, so use this simple formula to convert:

millimeters = yards × 914.4

The length in millimeters is equal to the yards multiplied by 914.4.

For example, here's how to convert 5 yards to millimeters using the formula above.
5 yd = (5 × 914.4) = 4,572 mm

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

Yards and millimeters 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.

Millimeters

One millimeter is equal to one-thousandth (1/1,000) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/299,792,458 second time interval.

The millimeter, or millimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millimeters can be abbreviated as mm, for example 1 millimeter can be written as 1 mm.

Millimeters are often represented by the smallest ticks on most metric rulers. To get a reference point of the size, the thickness of a US dime is 1.35mm.[2]

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.
