## Metric to U.S. Conversions

While the US continues to use imperial values for measuring area and volume the rest of the world has moved on and adopted the metric system of measurement.

Here is a quick table to help you with your conversions:

millimeter | x 0.0394 | = inches |

centimeter | x 0.3937 | = inches |

meters | x 3.2808 | = feet |

meters | x 1.0936 | = yards |

kilometers | x 0.6214 | = miles |

Area |
||

sq. cm. | x 0.155 | = sq. inches |

sq. meters | x 1.1960 | = sq. yards |

sq. meters | x 0.3861 | = sq. miles |

hectares | x 2.4710 | = acres |

Weight |
