Definition: Centimeter

A centimetre (American spelling centimeter, symbol cm) is a unit of length that is equal to one hundreth of a metre, the current SI base unit of length. A centimetre is part of a metric system. It is the base unit in the centimetre-gram-second system of units. A corresponding unit of area is the square centimetre. A corresponding unit of volume is the cubic centimetre.

The centimetre is a now a non-standard factor, in that factors of 103 are often preferred. However, it is practical unit of length for many everyday measurements. A centimetre is approximately the width of the fingernail of an adult person.

Definition: Inch

An inch is the name of a unit of length in a number of different systems, including Imperial units, and United States customary units. There are 36 inches in a yard and 12 inches in a foot. The inch is usually the universal unit of measurement in the United States, and is widely used in the United Kingdom, and Canada, despite the introduction of metric to the latter two in the 1960s and 1970s, respectively. The inch is still commonly used informally, although somewhat less, in other Commonwealth nations such as Australia; an example being the long standing tradition of measuring the height of newborn children in inches rather than centimetres. The international inch is defined to be equal to 25.4 millimeters.

## How to Convert Inches to Centimeters

To convert an inch measurement to a centimeter measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio.

One inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters, so use this simple formula to convert:

The length in centimeters is equal to the inches multiplied by 2.54.

For example, here’s how to convert 5 inches to centimeters using the formula above.

Our inch fraction calculator can add inches and centimeters

together, and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial, and SI metric values.

Inches and centimeters are both units used to measure length. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Inches

An inch is a unit of linear length measure equal to 1/_{12} of a foot or 1/_{36} of a yard.

Because the international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters, one inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters.

The inch is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Inches can be abbreviated as in; for example, 1 inch can be written as 1 in.

Inches can also be denoted using the ″ symbol, otherwise known as a double-prime.

Often a double-quote («) is used instead of a double-prime for convenience.

A double-prime is commonly used to express 1 in as 1″.

The standard ruler has 12″, and is a common measuring tool for measuring inches.

They are also often measured using tape measures, which commonly come in lengths from 6′ — 35′.

Other types of measuring devices include scales, calipers, measuring wheels, micrometers, yardsticks, and even lasers.

## Centimeters

One centimeter is equal to one-hundredth (1/100) of a meter, which is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in a 1/_{299,792,458}second time interval.

The centimeter, or centimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, «centi» is the prefix for 10-2. Centimeters can be abbreviated as cm; for example, 1 centimeter can be written as 1 cm.

typically have 30 cm, which are represented by 30 large tick marks.

To get a rough idea of the actual length of a centimeter, a standard pencil is just about 1 cm thick.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center.

Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.

## FAQ

### What is the formula to covert from centimeters to feet and inches?

To convert from cm to feet and inches, use the following two conversion equations:

1 cm = 0.3937 inches

and

1 foot = 12 inches

### Can you show the process to calculate it? For example, 180 cm in feet.

The equation is:

180 cm = 180 x 0.3937 inches = 70.86614 inches

70.86614 div 12 = 5 and 70.86614 mod 12 = 10.86614

so 180 cm = 5 feet 10.86614 inches

You can enter 180 cm above to make this tool calculate for you.

### Is there a mobile app for this tool?

This web tool is designed as a PWA (Progressive Web App). You can install it on your home screen if your device and browser support PWA.

## Difference between Inches and Centimeters

The inch is an old unit, used for the first time sometime in the 7 century in Europe, while officially defined in 1324. Different standards were used in different places, but nowadays it is defined in terms of meters and centimeters. Currently inches are mostly used in the US, the UK, Canada, and Japan. Since these countries originated a lot of technological innovations, the inch finds application in electronics – display screen sizes are predominantly expressed in inches.

The centimeter is derived from the base measurement unit established by the International Organization for Standardization – the meter. Its prefix ‘centi’ indicates that it is 1/100 of a meter. Therefore, the cm can be defined as being equal to the path length that light travels in vacuum in 1/29,979,245,800 of a second. A centimeter is equal to precisely 0.3937 of an inch, or 3887/9873 as a fraction. Centimeters are used when relatively good precision is required: in construction, engineering, architecture, and for certain scientific purposes. One will often themselves using an inch to cm converter if they engage in these disciplines on a worldwide scope.

Most rulers have both cm and in, featured on opposite sides.

The centimeter, or centimetre, is a multiple of the meter, which is the SI base unit for length. In the metric system, «centi» is the prefix for 10-2. Centimeters can be abbreviated as cm; for example, 1 centimeter can be written as 1 cm.

typically have 30 cm, which are represented by 30 large tick marks.

To get a rough idea of the actual length of a centimeter, a standard pencil is just about 1 cm thick.

## Inches

An inch is a unit of linear length measure equal to 1/_{12} of a foot or 1/_{36} of a yard.

Because the international yard is legally defined to be equal to exactly 0.9144 meters, one inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters.

The inch is a US customary and imperial unit of length. Inches can be abbreviated as in; for example, 1 inch can be written as 1 in.

Inches can also be denoted using the ″ symbol, otherwise known as a double-prime.

Often a double-quote («) is used instead of a double-prime for convenience.

A double-prime is commonly used to express 1 in as 1″.

The standard ruler has 12″, and is a common measuring tool for measuring inches.

They are also often measured using tape measures, which commonly come in lengths from 6′ — 35′.

Other types of measuring devices include scales, calipers, measuring wheels, micrometers, yardsticks, and even lasers.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center.

Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs.

## Дюймы (инчи, inches), обозначение

Часть мира измеряет размеры в дюймах и футах. Вообще-то, обычно в ходу и метры, сантиметры, миллиметры тоже, но более привычны дюймы. Именно такие единицы измерения в США, Канаде, Великобритании. А за ними подтягиваются остальные. Так повелось, например, что диагонали телевизоров, размеры экранов в смартфонах, диаметры труб, размеры обуви (и много чего еще) указываются именно в дюймах. Так что приходится задумываться о том, как перевести дюймы в сантиметры, метры или миллиметры.

Перевод дюймов в сантиметры (см) — элементарная задача. Надо просто запомнить, что 1 дюйм — это 2,54 см

Сначала поговорим о том, как эти дюймы обозначаются. На английском — это inch. Если их (дюймов) много, пишут inches. В сокращенном варианте ставят только первые две буквы in. Это встречается в тексте. Есть и графическое изображение — это две черточки вверху возле цифры. Например: 3″, 5,2″. Читается это как 3 дюйма, пять и два дюйма.
