# Conversion from Meter (m) to Foot/Feet (ft) and vice versa

Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Unit of length Meter into the unit Foot/Feet and vice versa you can convert Foot/Feet into Meter. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., m to ft or ft to m. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Unit of length.

Meter is a basic unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and other metric systems. All other units of length in the metric system are derived from the meter (e.g. 1 km = 1.000 m, 1m = 1.000 mm).

The meter was defined in 1799 based on measurements taken at the time as the ten millionth part of the distance from the North Pole to the equator. For this purpose, a so-called prototype meter was casted in platinum. Since 1983, the meter has been defined as the distance travelled by light in 1/299,792,458 seconds in a vacuum.

The foot was popular as a measure of length from very early times and it is still in use in Anglo-American countries today, but does not belong to the international unit system SI (Système international d'unités).

In different countries, its length usually corresponded to 28-32cm. Nowadays only the English foot is used. Therefore, 1 foot is equivalent to 30.48 centimeters or 1 foot is equivalent to 12 inches/inch.

## Basis for conversion Meter (m) to Foot/Feet (ft) and vice versa

The abbreviation for the "Unit of length Meter" is m. The abbreviation for the "Unit of length Foot/Feet" is ft.
