Scale of Equivalents

LINEAR:

1 Inch = .03 vara

12 Inches = 1 foot = .36 vr.

3 Feet = 36 in. = 1 yard = 1.08 vrs.

1 Vara = 33 1/3 in. = 2.777+ ft.

1 Rod = 1 perch = 1 pole = 16 1/2 ft. = 5.94 vrs

1 Chain = 100 links = 66 ft. = 23.76 vrs.

1 Link = 7.92 in. = .2376 vr.

1 Mile = 5280 ft. = 80 chains = 1900.8 vrs.

1 Arpent = 191.83 ft.

SQUARE:

1 Acre = 43,560 sq. ft. = 5645.3757 sq. vrs. = 10 sq. chains

1 Sq. Arpent = .846281 Ac.

1 Sq. Hectare = 2.47104 Ac.

1 Sq. Mile = 27,878,400 sq. ft. = 3,613,040.64 sq. vrs. = 640 Ac.

1 Labor = 1000 vrs. sq. = 2,777.77+ ft. sq. = 177.14 Ac.

1 League = 5000 vrs. sq. = 13,888.88 ft. sq. = 4428.40 Ac. = 6.919 sq. mi.
