Use a tape measure to mark a 100-foot course on flat ground. Walk at a normal speed from one end of the course to the other, counting your steps as you go. **Divide the total number of steps into 100**, and you’ll find out the length of one step. For example, if you took 50 steps to go 100 feet, your step length is 2 feet.

estimate how far it moved sideways (you could imagine the length of a car or something).

…

**Here is a clever method to estimate how far away something is:**

…

- Hold your arm straight out, thumb up.
- Close one eye, align your thumb with distant object.
- Switch eyes (don’t move your thumb!)
- Your thumb will seem to change position.

The principal methods of measuring distance are the (1) pacing. (2) odometer. (3) **taping or “chaining**.” (4) stadia.

Distance in **feet/number of steps = step length**.

If you want to calculate your walking stride length, divide the number of steps you took by 2 and divide that number into the measured distance. If it took you 16 steps to cover 20 feet, divide the number of steps (16) by 2 to get the number of strides.

Measured Distance Short Walk

Measure off a known distance – 20 feet or **50** feet. Then get up to speed in your natural walk and count the number of strides it takes to cover that distance. Divide the number of feet by the number of strides. Feet/strides = Stride length in feet.

To measure distances in a field (for example the length and width of a field), **a chain or a measuring tape** is used.

- Ruler/Straight Edge Rule.
- Tape Measure.
- Measuring Tape Reel/Long Tape.
- Measuring Wheel.
- Laser Tape Measure.

The instrument is most commonly used to measure the lengths of roads, rivers and other line features on maps. **Opisometers** designed for this purpose provide scales reading the measured distance in kilometers and miles. Early versions of this instrument were patented in 1873 by the English engineer Edward Russell Morris.

69000 Steps ≈ **34.848 Miles**

You can measure your own step length and enter it in inches below.

16000 Steps ≈ **12.8 km**

The actual length of your steps may be different than our estimate. You can measure your own step length and enter it in centimeters below.

Steps per mile average (men and women combined)

Steps | Slow walk (3mph) | Brisk walk (4mph) |
---|---|---|

5,000 steps | 2.2 miles | 2.6 miles |

6,000 steps | 2.7 miles | 3.1 miles |

7,000 steps | 3.1 miles |
3.6 miles |

8,000 steps | 3.6 miles | 4.1 miles |

A pace is a unit of length consisting either of one normal walking step (**approximately 0.75 metres or 30 inches**), or of a double step, returning to the same foot (approximately 1.5 metres or 60 inches).

Pacing is **the process of walking the distance and counting the number of steps “paces” to cover the distance**. The distance is determined by multiplying the number of steps taken between two points by one’s pace factor. … With practice it is possible to pace a distance with an error of less than 2 ft per 100 ft.

An average person has a stride length of approximately **2.1 to 2.5 feet**.

**To find a value that is close enough to the right answer**, usually with some thought or calculation involved. Example: Alex estimated there were 10,000 sunflowers in the field by counting one row then multiplying by the number of rows.

One method is to **measure from the line on your wrist to the tip of your middle finger** – good for measuring long surfaces. For shorter distances, measure the length of your pinkie finger. It’s a lot easier to use your pinkie for smaller dimensions since it’s located on the outside of your hand.

To measure large distances, such as the distance of a planet or a star from Earth, **astronomers use the principle of parallax**. Here, the term parallax is the semi-angle of inclination between two sight-lines to the star, as observed when Earth is on opposite sides of the Sun in its orbit.
## How do you calculate height and distance?

The calculation of the height of an object is achieved by the **measurement of its distance from the object**. This includes the angle of elevation at the top of the object while calculating the height. The tangent of the angle is considered as the height of the object, which is divided by the distance from the object.
## What is the best tool to measure length?

## How long is a mile on a map?

## What measures the distance Travelled by the car?

If an item that is being measured fits on a piece of paper, **a ruler** is probably the best tool to use. Another tool to measure length is a tape measure.

If the scale were 1:63,360, for instance, then 1 inch on the map would represent 63,360 inches or 1 mile on the ground (63,360 inches divided by 12 inches = **5,280 feet** or 1 mile).

odometer

Speedometer, instrument that indicates the speed of a vehicle, usually combined with a device known as **an odometer** that records the distance traveled.

**14 Easy Ways to Get You to 10,000 Steps**

A **meterstick** is an instrument for measuring short distances. For short distances, the metric unit meter (m) and the English unit yard (yd) are commonly used. For long distances, the metric unit kilometer (km) and the English unit mile (mi) are commonly used.

3800 Steps ≈ **1.919 Miles**

You can measure your own step length and enter it in inches below.

But **it’s not necessary hit 10,000 steps a day**, research shows, and the health perks of walking may be on a spectrum. … But the reduction in risk appeared to max out at about 7,500 steps a day, and researchers found no additional benefits to walking 10,000 or more daily steps.

6400 Steps ≈ **3.232 Miles**

You can measure your own step length and enter it in inches below.

People who walked 6,000 steps a day on average were **less likely to have problems** standing, walking and climbing stairs two years later, the researchers found. … Of course, walking also delivers lots of other benefits, including reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer and depression.

Getting 20,000 steps **per day is exhausting**, but it’s the good kind of exhausting. The kind of exhaustion that brings with it a sense of satisfaction. Every night during this week-long challenge, I crawled into bed earlier than usual with sore and tired muscles—and I loved it. I had pushed my body and it had kept up.

How many steps have I walked/run?

Miles | Slow walk (3mph) | Run (6mph) |
---|---|---|

2 miles | 4504 steps | 3344 steps |

3 miles | 6756 steps | 5016 steps |

4 miles | 9008 steps | 6688 steps |

5 miles | 11260 steps | 8360 steps |

A new study suggests we might want to move quite a bit more to improve our fitness. Experts say 15,000 steps per day – equivalent to a seven-and-a- half-mile hike – are **required to gain the maximum health boost**, and only if the pace is kept brisk.
