Conversion formula – inches to centimeters
In everyday life, we often encounter situations that require us to be able to convert units of length, mass and time. It’s not only conversion done within the same measurement type but it’s also converting US customary units or British Imperial Units into meter base unit. For example when buying ceiling projection screen 84 inches frame someone may look for centimeters conversion to check corresponding value in symbol cm. For 84 inches frame we will have length and height equal 185 cm x 105 cm.
Modern definition for length values
The standard table of measurement for the UK Imperial Units System and the United States Standard System includes inches (in), feet (or foot; ft), yards (yd) and miles (mi). The Metric System commonly uses millimeters (mm), centimeters (cm), meters (m), and kilometers (km).
International standard unit
According to Wikipedia The International System of Units (symbol SI) is the modern form of the metric system and the world’s most widely used system of measurement. The SI comprises a coherent system of units of measurement starting with seven base units, which are: the second, meter, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela. The system can accommodate coherent units for an unlimited number of additional quantities.
British Imperial Units – how many cm are in 84 inches?
If we want to provide an inch value in centimeters, we need to use cm converter. Unit converter can be easily found in internet. One inch is an approximately equivalent of 2.54 cm. Simple multiplication will allow us to find out how many centimeters are in 84 inches.
1 inch = 2.54 cm
10 inches = 25.4 cm
85 inches in cm = 85 x 2.54 cm = 215.9 cm
By that formula US customary unit can be easily converted into international standard unit. In this case 2.54 cm can be a value which is a conversion factor for other inches values.
Decimal fractional values – conversion factor for decimal system
By converting a larger unit to a smaller one, we multiply by 10, 100, 1000, 1,000,000, respectively. By converting a ton into kilograms we multiply by 1000, we multiply kilograms into decagrams by 100. The same formula is applied to centimeter, meter and kilometr units. Decimal fraction logic cannot be applied for US customary units which means that using that logic we cannot calculate (convert) how many inches are in 1 foot.
