Things to know

Definition of ft and km conversion:

Here we will show you what is feet and kilometer:

Feet(ft):

The feet ( pl. feet), standard symbol: ft, is a unit of length in the British imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. The prime symbol, ′, is a customarily used alternative symbol. Since the International Yard and Pound Agreement of 1959, one foot is defined as 0.3048 meters exactly.

Use of Feet:

Foot measurements were used in many different systems, including the Greek, Roman, English, Chinese and French systems, which varied in length. The different lengths were due to parts of the human body historically being used as the basis for units of length (such as the hand, span, numeral, and many other, sometimes referred to as anthropological units). In the US, feet and inches are commonly used to measure height, short distances, length of field, etc.

Kilometers(km):

A kilometer (symbol: km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). One kilometer is equivalent to 0.6214 miles.

Use of Kilometers:

The prefix kilo- is a metric prefix indicating one thousand. So we can describe 1 kilometer is 1000 metres. The origin of the kilometer is linked to the meter. It is currently the official unit of measurement for expressing distances between geographic locations on land in most parts of the world. In past, there are still many countries that primarily use miles instead of kilometers, including the United States and the United Kingdom (UK). While the metric system is widely used in government, commerce and industry, remnants of the imperial system can still be seen in the use of the mile in Britain’s road systems.
