Metric Conversion

Designed during the French Revolution and officially adopted in France in 1799, most of the world also uses the metric system—and has for many years. Vivre la système métrique!

Well, don't pop the champagne yet. For in our United States, it's still inches, miles, and pounds, rather than centimeters, kilometers, and kilograms. So, here's some conversion assistance.
1 centimeter (cm) = .394 inches ("))
To convert centimeters to inches,
multiply the number of centimeters by .394 to get total inches.


1 inch (") = 2.54 centimeters (cm)
To convert inches to centimeters,
multiply the number of inches by 2.54 to get total centimeters.
