Formula

rod = m / 5.03

Quick Rough Maths

To get the Rods, divide the number of Metres by 5.0

Metres (m) in 1 Rod

There are 5.03 Metres in 1 Rod

Rods (rod) in 1 Metre

There are 0.2 Rods in 1 Metre

Symbol: **m**

Unit System: SI

Unit System: SI

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!

Symbol: **rod**

Unit System: Imperial

Unit System: Imperial

The rod is a unit of length in the imperial and US sytem and uses the symbol rod.

A rod (or perch, pole, lug) is equal to 16.5 feet or 5.5 yards.

It is a building surveyor's tool for measuring distance and is particularly useful as multiples of this unit can make up an exact acre. A perfect acre is a rectangle with edges 660 feet and 66 feet - which is 40 rods by 4 rods; i.e. 1 acre = 160 square rods.
