College Physics Problem 1.2.5


Soccer fields vary in size. A large soccer field is 115 m long and 85 m wide. What are its dimensions in feet and inches?


Solution:

The length in feet and inches are

\displaystyle 115\:m=\left(115\:m\right)\left(\frac{1\:ft}{0.3048\:m}\right)=377.3\:feet          ☚

\displaystyle 115\:m=\left(115\:m\right)\left(\frac{1\:ft}{0.3048\:m}\right)\left(\frac{12\:inches}{1\:ft}\right)  

\displaystyle =4528\:inches        ☚

The width in feet and inches are

\displaystyle 85\:m=\left(85\:m\right)\left(\frac{1\:ft}{0.3048\:m}\right)=278.9\:ft          ☚

\displaystyle 85\:m=\left(85\:m\right)\left(\frac{1\:ft}{0.3048\:m}\right)\left(\frac{12\:in}{1\:ft}\right)=3346\:inches          ☚
