Hey! I am practicing on questions dealing with units of measurement. The concept of conversion from feet to meters and back, from meters to feet seems to be messed up inside my brain. How do the values really come by? Is there a technique to remember it once and for all?
How to carry out the conversion from feet to meters and vice-versa
Hi there! Sure enough, units of measurement can be frustrating as well as confusing. Let us deal with the conversion from feet to meters first.
A foot refers to the distance equivalent to 0.3048 meters. Consequently, two feet is equivalent to twice a foot which is equal to twice of 0.3048 in meters and so on. Once this gets embedded in your brain, the vice-versa case becomes quite intuitive. If one foot equals 0.3048 meters, then 1 meter would be definitely the same as the ratio (1/0.3048), that is, 3.281 units in feet.
Here is a tip – Learn any one case properly. The other one would just require simple calculations. Happy practicing!
