Feet (ft) to Centimeters (cm) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in feet (ft) and converts it to centimeters (cm), or a value you enter in feet & inches (ft & in) and converts it to centimeters (cm).

How many feet (ft) are in 1 centimeter (cm)? What is the formula for how to convert feet to centimeters (ft to cm)?

1 foot (ft) = 30.48 centimeters (cm)
So we can say that there are 30.48 centimeters in 1 foot.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement is 30.48.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 centimeter (cm) = 0.032808398950131 foot (ft)
So we can say that there is 0.032808398950131 foot in 1 centimeter.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement is 0.032808398950131.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in feet to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in centimeters (ft to cm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

cm = ft ร— 30.48 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

cm = ft รท 0.032808398950131 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 7 feet that you want to convert to centimeters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

cm = 7 ft ร— 30.48 = 213.36 cm
cm = 7 ft รท 0.032808398950131 = 213.36 cm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 213.36 centimeters.

What is the formula for how to convert feet & inches to centimeters (ft & in to cm)?

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length expressed in feet & inches, such as a personโ€™s height, to centimeters. As an example, letโ€™s use the height of NBA player Victor Wembanyama who is reported to be 7 feet & 4 inches tall, and convert it to centimeters:

  1. Convert feet to centimeters: Multiply the number of feet by 30.48 (since 1 foot = 30.48 cm).
7 feet ร— 30.48 = 213.36 centimeters
  1. Convert inches to centimeters: Multiply the number of inches by 2.54 (since 1 inch = 2.54 cm).
4 inches ร— 2.54 = 10.16 centimeters
  1. Combine the results: Add the results from steps 1 and 2 to get the total height in centimeters.
213.36 centimeters + 10.16 centimeters = 223.52 centimeters

So, Victor Wembanyamaโ€™s reported height of 7 feet & 4 inches is equal to 223.52 centimeters.

Feet to centimeters (ft to cm) conversion charts

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from feet to centimeters is needed, here is a feet-to-centimeters conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in feet and their equivalent measurement values in centimeters. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.
