# Yards to Meters Converter

## What is yard?

The yard is an English unit of length equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. Since 1959 it has been standardized by an international agreement. The distance is equal to 1 mile. The yard in the US is slightly longer.

## What is meter?

The base unit of length in the International System of Units is the metre. The SI unit symbol is m. The Earth's circumference is approximately 40000 km, which is one tenth of a millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole. The actual bar used for the redefined metre was changed in 1889. The metre was redefined in 1960 in terms of the wavelength of the emission line. The definition was changed in 2002 to clarify that the metre is a measure of proper length.
