# Standard and Metric Measurements Standard and Metric Measurements

## More Useful for Survival Than You Might Think!

In my recent research, I came across a complete chart of standard and metric measurements.

Now, I don’t pretend to be a wiz at this (math has never been my thing) — but, I will say this: having access to a complete chart such as this one presents a thought of “Well, this chart is a good piece of information to have because you just never know when it may come in handy!”…especially if a trade or bartering situation should arrive.

I’m sharing this chart with the readers of Survival Life as it may come in handy one day for you all as well.

### Linear Measures 1 mile = 8 furlongs = 1,760 yards = 5,280 feet = 1.609 kilometers (km)

1 furlong = 10 chains = 220 yards = 201 meters (m)

1 chain = cricket pitch = 22 yards = 66 feet = 20 meters

1 yard (yd) = 3 feet = 0.9144 meters

1 foot (ft) = 12 inches = 0.3048 meters

1 inch (in) = 25.4 millimeters (mm)

### Square Measures 1 square mile = 640 acres = 259 hectares

1 acre = 10 square chains = 4,840 square yards = 0.405 hectares

1 rood = ¼ acre = 1,210 square yards = 1,011 square meters

1 square yard (sq yd) = 9 square feet = 0.836 square meters

1 square foot (sq ft) = 144 square inches = 9.29 square decimeters

1 square inch (sq in) = 6.45 square centimeters

### Cubic Measures 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet = 0.765 cubic meters

1 cubic foot = 1,728 cubic inches = 0.028 cubic meters

1 cubic inch = 16.4 cubic centimeters

### Capacity Measure 1 bushel = 4 pecks = 64 pints = 8 gallons = 30.28 liters

1 peck = 2 gallons = 16 pints = 7.568 liters

1 gallon (gal) = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 3.785 liters

1 quart (qt) = 2 pints = .946 liters

1 pint (pt) = 16 fluid ounces = 4 gills = 0.473 liters

1 gill = 4 fluid ounces = 0.118 liters

1 fluid ounce (fl oz) = 1.8 cubic inches = 0.029 liters

### Weight 1 ton = 20 hundredweight = 2,240 pounds = 1.016 metric tons

1 hundredweight (cwt) = 4 quarters = 112 pounds = 50.80 kilograms (kg)

1 quarter = 2 stones = 28 pounds = 12.70 kilograms

1 stone = 14 pounds = 6.35 kilograms

1 pound (lb) = 16 ounces = 7,000 grains = 0.45 kilograms

1 ounce (oz) = 16 drams = 28.35 grams (g)

1 dram (dr) = 27.3 grains = 1.772 grams

1 grain (gr) = 0.065 grams
