Formula

yd = m x 1.09

Quick Rough Maths

To get the Yards, multiply the number of Metres by 1.1

Metres (m) in 1 Yard

There are 0.91 Metres in 1 Yard

Yards (yd) in 1 Metre

There are 1.09 Yards in 1 Metre

The metre (or meter; US spelling) is the SI base unit of length and uses the symbol m.

Originally defined in 1793 as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole but was redefined in 1799 in terms of a prototyped metre bar (this bar was changed again in 1889).

In 1983 the current definition was adopted and it is now the most common unit in any property in the world and is used in thousands of formulae to describe countless characteristics.

Let's hear it for the metre!

The yard is a unit of length in the imperial and US system and uses the symbol yd.

A yard is equal to 3 ft or 36 inches. There is 0.9144 m in a yard. There are 1760 yards in a mile.

Derived from the Old English 'gyrd' or 'gerd', the yard was first defined in the late 1600s laws of Ine of Wessex where a "yard of land" (yardland) was an old unit of tax assessment by the government.

The yard was the original standard adpoted by early English leaders and was apparently used in length by the Saxon race and represented the breadth of the chest of a man. After a relative hiatus, Queen Elizabeth reintroduced the yard as the English standard of measure, and it still survives in many 2nd generation conversations today.
