## How many Yards in a Meter?

There are exactly **0.9144 yards in a meter**, since a yard is defined as 3 feet, and a feed is defined as 0.3048 according to the international treaty of 1959 which began the International System of Units (SI). All modernly used official metrics are a part of that system or defined relative to it. The official symbol for a yard is "yd", and "m" for meters.

## Difference between Yards and Meters

The yard and the meter are pretty similar - both are units to measure length, and both are used for small distances or dimensions of larger bodies or structures. Due to their similar magnitude, they are mostly used in the same situation, so converting between one and the other is often needed.

The major difference is that the yard is a part of the imperial unit system, which is used officially in the United States and the United Kingdom. The meter is the base unit in the metric system, used internationally in everyday life and in science.
