Understanding the Basics:

To be able to convert between centimeters and inches it’s essential to understand the basics of their relation. The centimeter and inch are length units commonly utilized in different measurement systems. The inch can be described as a measure of length used in the system known as imperial while a centimeter can be a length measurement unit in the system of measurement metric. The primary factor in converting between both systems is the conversion factor. 1 inch equals 2.54 centimeters.

Converting between centimeters and inches can be helpful in a variety of situations. For instance, if making a dish that requires measurement in metric units, and the kitchen has only measuring cups measured in inches, knowing the conversion will make a difference and prevent a food catastrophe. If you’re travelling to a country using an metric measurement system knowing an understanding of the inches to centimeters conversion will aid you in navigating distances and determine dimensions with greater accuracy.

Converting Inches to Centimeters:

Converting inches to centimeters is a straightforward process that involves multiplying the number of inches by the conversion factor (2.54). To illustrate this, let’s use an example:

Example: Convert 10 inches to centimeters.

Step 1: Multiply the number of inches (10) by the conversion factor (2.54).

10 inches x 2.54 centimeters/inch = 25.4 centimeters.

Therefore, 10 inches is equal to 25.4 centimeters.


Converting Centimeters to Feet and Inches:

In everyday life, there may be instances where you need to convert centimeters to feet and inches. This is particularly common when measuring height or dimensions of objects. To convert centimeters to feet and inches, you need to divide the centimeter value by 2.54 and then separate the result into feet and inches. Let’s see an example:

Example: Convert 175 cm to feet and inches.

Step 1: Divide the centimeter value (175) by the conversion factor (2.54).

175 cm ÷ 2.54 = 68.8976 inches.

Step 2: Convert the inches to feet by dividing the result (68.8976 inches) by 12 (since there are 12 inches in a foot).

68.8976 inches ÷ 12 = 5.74147 feet.

So, 175 cm is approximately equal to 5 feet and 8.89 inches.


Converting Centimeters to Feet:

If you only need to convert centimeters to feet without considering the inches, the process becomes simpler. To convert centimeters directly to feet, divide the centimeter value by the conversion factor (30.48), as there are 30.48 centimeters in a foot. Let’s look at an example:


Example: Convert 180 cm to feet.

Step 1: Divide the centimeter value (180) by the conversion factor (30.48).

180 cm ÷ 30.48 = 5.90551 feet.

Therefore, 180 cm is approximately equal to 5.91 feet.


Converting Feet and Inches to Centimeters:

While the main focus of this guide is converting inches to centimeters, it’s worth mentioning that some readers may need to convert measurements from the imperial system (feet/inches) to the metric system (centimeters). To convert feet and inches to centimeters, you can use the following formula:

Centimeters = (feet x 30.48) + (inches x 2.54)

Example: Convert 5’4″ (feet/inches) into centimeters.

Step 1: Multiply the number of feet (5) by the conversion factor (30.48).

5 feet x 30.48 centimeters/foot = 152.4 centimeters.

Step 2: Multiply the number of inches (4) by the conversion factor (2.54).

4 inches x 2.54 centimeters/inch = 10.16 centimeters.

Step 3: Add the results obtained from step 1 and step 2.

152.4 centimeters + 10.16 centimeters = 162.56 centimeters.

Therefore, 5 feet 4 inches is approximately equal to 162.56 centimeters.
