If your step length is 70 cm and your pedometer has recorded 5,000 steps The distance calculation is 0.7 (70 cm) x 5000 (steps) = 3500 (meters) / 1000 (meter in a Km) = 3.5 km. You have stepped 5000 steps which equates to 3.5 km.
Example: A lady - 165 cm (height) x 0.413 = 68.145 cm (round off to 68 cm)
The technology for a pedometer includes a mechanical sensor and software to count steps. Early forms used a mechanical switch to detect steps together with a simple counter. If one shakes these devices, one hears a lead ball sliding back and forth, or a pendulum striking stops as it swings.
