›› Definition: Mile

A mile is any of several units of distance, or, in physics terminology, of length. Today, one mile is mainly equal to about 1609 m on land and 1852 m at sea and in the air, but see below for the details. The abbreviation for mile is 'mi'. There are more specific definitions of 'mile' such as the metric mile, statute mile, nautical mile, and survey mile. On this site, we assume that if you only specify 'mile' you want the statute mile.


›› Definition: Furlong

A furlong is a measure of distance within Imperial units and U.S. customary units, and is equal to 660 feet or 201.168 metres. There are eight furlongs in a mile.

Distances for thoroughbred horse races in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States are still given in miles and furlongs (example), but the unit is otherwise no longer in common use. It is heavily used within the rail industry (especially maintenance and repair services) in the UK, due to the legacy measurements and distance markers from when the tracks were first laid down.

Coincidentally, 5 furlongs is approximately 1 kilometer (1.00584 to be exact).
