It depends on what you're measuring. If measuring the length of the river, then miles. If measuring the width, then probably yards (or feet). If measuring water depth, then probably feet.

Feet and hours are two different measuring methods. Feet measure distances while hours measure time.

A chain is a very old Linear Measure. 1 chain = 22 yards = 66 feet.

Feet in a Furlong

This is one of the dictionary definitions of the word "shot", see http://dictionary.reverso.net/english-definitions/shot. In surveying, the 'chain' means 66ft, 10 chains = 1 furlong, but this is a different use of the unit of chain length. ________________________________________________________________ In the imperial system of measurement there are two units referred to as a "chain". As already stated the usual measurement is the Surveyor's chain (also known as Gunter's chain) = 66 feet. The Engineer's chain = 100 feet. So 75 feet is equal to 1.136 chains, or 0.75 Engineer's chains

A furlong is 1/8 of a mile, so therefore 660 feet.

A furlong is a measure of distance in imperial units and U.S. customary units. It is equal to one-eighth of an international mile, to 220 yards, and to 660 feet.

As a unit of length, a chain is 66 feet long. So two chains would be 132 feet long. As there are 10 chains in a furlong, 2 chains is also equal to 1/5 of a furlong.

It depends on what you're measuring. If measuring the length of the river, then miles. If measuring the width, then probably yards (or feet). If measuring water depth, then probably feet.

A furlong is 220.0000 yards and it is 660.0000 feet.There are 5280 feet in one mile and there are eight furlongs in one mile, so a furlong must equal 660 feet.

it's not an amount of feet. a square foot is a square, that is a foot by a foot. A foot is a unit of measurement. A square foot is also a unit of measurement. Whenever you measure a length, such as with a tape measure, you are measuring in feet. If you are measuring the area of a shape, you are measuring in square feet.
