The distance is measured from the endline to the placeholder (the player who stands ands holds the ball for the kicker), and can be accurately estimated using the yardlines and hashmarks on the field.
In football lets say the kicker is kicking from the 20 yard line. This would be considered a 30 yard field goal because the endzone is 10 yards long and the goal posts are at the back of the endzone.
you take where the ball is placed, plus usually 7 yards for where the center snaps the ball to the holder and add 10 yards for the length of the touchdown.so if the ball is on the 20 yard line, it would be a 37 yard field goal attempt.
you have to drive the offense down the field. If you don't get a first down and its fourth down, you can kick. I would only kick from 53 yards away at the max. you bring out your kicker, longsnapper, holder, and lineman. The longsnapper snps the ball to the holder, the holder hods it down staight on the ground, and the kicker kicks it.
Take the yard line that the team is at and add 17 yards... 7 for the yards added from the hike to the holder and the other 10 yards to account for the end zone.

By measuring it with a long tape measure. Kidding, I'll assume that you are looking for the length of a football field. Which is 100 yards.
Yes. The endzone is included in the distance of a field goal.
In American football, the distance between the goal lines is 300 feet and the distance between the sidelines is 160 feet.
3 points for a field goal in American Football
A football field goal can be made whenever a team is close to their goal line and on 4th down. If they feel they are unable to complete a pass or run to make a 1st down they can attempt a field goal and take 3 points rather than 6 with a touchdown.
In college football, the rule for a missed field goal to the kicker's left is called wide left and conversely wide right if it misses to the kicker's right. It is described as short if it is aimed correctly but does not have the distance to go over the cross bar.
Divide the number of field goal attempts by the number of field goals made. For example, if a player has attempted 300 field goals and made 135 field goals, you would divide 300 into 135. In the example, the player's field goal percentage would be .450 or 45 percent.
If the field goal is blocked, and you recover, you can re-kick another field goal. If you miss the field goal it is a turnover. So, it is best to kick your field goal on 4th down
A end zone of a football field. Also a football goal, soccer goal, etc.
It is believed to be 116 yards.
