Definition of yard

A yard (briefly: yd) is a unit of length in the British imperial system and the U.S. customary system:

1 yard = 3 feet = 36 inches.

1,760 yards are equal to 1 mile.
Since 1959, in the metric system, 1 yd refers to 0.91444 m:

1 yard = 0.9144 meters = 91.44 centimeters = 914.4 millimeters.

Examples of yard conversion to different units

Let's take a look at some examples:

  • To convert yards to meters, simply multiply the distance in yards by 0.9144. For example, 5 yards to meters will be 5 × 0.9144 m = 4.572 m.
  • The conversion of yards to miles means that you divide the number of yards by 1760, e.g. 1000 yd/1760 = 0.5682 miles.
  • The conversion of yards to feet is based on multiplying the number of yards by 3. For instance, 25 yards to feet are 25 yds × 3 = 75 feet.
