## Feet

Feet, as a unit of length, finds common usage within the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. It is represented by the symbol “ft” or a single prime symbol (‘).

One foot is defined as equivalent to 12 inches or approximately 30.48 centimeters. It is primarily used to measure height, distance, or length, and serves as a practical reference for everyday objects, human height, and architectural or construction purposes.

For example, consider a piece of wood measuring 5 feet in length. This means that the wood is equivalent to 60 inches or approximately 152.4 centimeters.

## Meters

A meter is a unit of length widely used in the metric system and the International System of Units (SI). It is represented by the symbol “m” and serves as the fundamental unit of length in the metric system.

The meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum during a specific fraction of a second, precisely 1/299,792,458 of a second. This definition ensures that the speed of light in a vacuum is precisely 299,792,458 meters per second.

## How to convert feet to meters

1ft = 0.3048m

Distance d in meters (m) is equal to distance d in feet (ft) times 0.3048 i.e.,

d_{(m)} = d_{(ft)} × 0.3048

**Example-**

Convert 45 feet to meters

Solutions: d_{(m)} = 45ft × 0.3048 = 13.716m
