Yards

A unit of length equal to 3 feet; defined as 91.44 centimeters; originally taken to be the average length of a stride

ch =
yd * 0.045454
 
 
 

Chains

Unit of length equal to 66 feet, used especially in the U.S. public land surveys. The original measuring instrument (Gunter's chain) was literally a chain consisting of 100 iron links, each 7.92 inches long. Steel-ribbon tapes began to supersede chains around 1900, but surveying tapes are often still called "chains" and measuring with a tape is often called "chaining". The chain is a convenient unit in cadastral surveys because 10 square chains equal 1 acre.
