Things to know

A mile is greater than a meter. I know that a mi is greater than a m because of something called conversion factors. Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it.

## MILES:

A mile (symbol: mi or m) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. Its size can vary from system to system, but in each is between 1 and 10 kilometers.

One mile is also equal to 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards. In contrast to inches or yards, miles can be considered the most internationally recognized and used unit of distance.

The word “mile” comes from the Latin “mille passus”, meaning one thousand paces, and a mile was 1,000 Roman strides, a stride being two paces. In 1592, the English Parliament standardized the measurement of the Mile to equal eight furlongs (furlong = 660 feet).

## METER:

A meter is a SI unit scientifically accepted as the base unit of distance and length. One meter is equal to 0.000621371 miles. It is also defined as the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 of a second. The abbreviation of Meter is ‘m’.

The meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 of a second. This definition was slightly modified in 2019 to reflect changes in the definition of the second.

## How to Convert Miles to Meters?

One mile is equal to 1,609.344 meters, you can use this simple formula to convert:
meters = miles × 1,609.344
The length in meters is equal to the miles multiplied by 1,609.344.

For example, here’s how to convert 5 miles to meters using the formula above.
5 mi = (5 × 1,609.344) = 8,046.72 m

### Meter = Mile * 1609.344

Example:
Convert 13.5 miles to meters?

Solution:
As we know the value of the miles is 13.5 mi.
Now, consider the simple conversion formula to convert mi to m ie.,
meters = miles * 1609.344 m
= 13.5 * 1609.344 m
= 21726.144 m
Thus, 13.5 Miles = 21726.144 meters.

## Uses of Miles:

Most countries have adopted the metric system and use kilometers, rather than miles, to express land distance, the mile is still prevalently used in countries such as the United States (US), United Kingdom (UK), Myanmar, and Liberia.

## Uses of Meters:

Being the SI unit of length, the meter is used worldwide in many applications such as measuring distance, height, length, width, etc. United States is one notable exception in that it largely uses US customary units such as yards, inches, feet, and miles instead of meters in everyday use.
