The height converter calculates standard imperial units to metric. It can convert feet to centimeters and centimeters to feet with considerable accuracy. To use the height converter simply type your height into the text box, select which units you wish to convert from the drop down list and click 'Submit'. If you know your height in feet and inches, or in centimeters, you can easily get it converted vice-a-versa to the nearest conversion metrics. For example if your height is 5 feet 10 inches, type 5.10 in the text box, select the “feet to centimeters” from the drop down list and click ‘submit’.


In making the calculations, the following conversions are used:

1 inch = 2.54 centimeters

1 foot = 12 inches


*Note: If using this height calculator to convert feet to another measurement, please use whole numbers (e.g. 5, 6, 7) - no decimals. If you are calculating a height that is, for example, 5 feet 12 inches (5'12"), convert 5 feet on its own then convert the inches separately and add the two values together.

Is it possible for someone to measure their own height accurately? I think it is if you use a ruler and a wall to make sure you're getting it, but a friend says that you can't because you'll use the ruler at an angle.

Anyone care to settle a bet?

surprisingly, it does come up when you need to know this sort of thing, converting from one system of measurement to the other. It’s convenient to have this. :-)

This is perfect for so many reasons - especially converting recipes that were written in metric.

I was trying to make a ginger infusion that used "2cm of ginger root" that is supposed to be good for settling a stomach. Because of this tool, I knew that it meant just shy of 1 inch.

I collect kimono and I can't even say how often I've needed to convert from centimeters or even from inches to feet! Saved me from buying too too small vintage or antique kimono more than once.

I’m not exactly sure why I’d need a tool like this. It’s interesting to know what my height is in metric, but I don’t know when I’d ever actually use that information other than for its value as trivia. I’ve never needed to know it before, so I’m not sure why I should start.

i appreciate this since there are a lot of things coming from outside the United States where they use the metric system and that's all Greek to me. It's probably good to know this information anyway, just in case, because it does come up every now and again. I had a recipe recently that said I needed 2 cm of ginger root! It’s about an inch!
