Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

"Right . . . what's a cubit?" That's an original line from one of Bill Cosby's early recordings about God telling Noah to build the ark. For anyone wanting to reveal their age, anyone else remember that? :-)

BTW, you're not building an ark, are you?

You can go to http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/length for an approximate conversion. The cubit conversion is close to the bottom of the page.

This site doesn't have an exact conversion and I'm not sure anyone knows what the exact conversion is.

Maybe Sergy, Alex, Ken or someone else knows.
