 Meter, Kilometer, Centimeter, Inches, or Foot all these are units of length. These units are used to measure the length of anything or the distance between two objects. Measuring centimeters in an Inch or vice versa is very easy if you know how they are interrelated.

The metric system is the official system of measurement in most countries except for the United States. The United States has not fully adopted the metric system, but they use units like miles, pounds, gallons, etc more often than Kilometer, Kilograms, and Litres.

For example, gas mileage is measured in miles per gallon, the temperature is recorded in degrees Fahrenheit, and weight is recorded in pounds.

When you are writing content for an American audience that uses imperial units, you might need to convert these measurements into metric units for your readers who are more familiar with them.

Length is the distance between two points. The standard unit of length in the United States is the foot (ft), and in most other countries it’s the meter (m).

The following table lists some common units of length:

## What is an Inch?

An inch is a unit of length denoted as “in” is both used in the US and UK systems of measurements. An inch is equal to 1/12 of feet as 12 Inches make 1 foot. An inch is equal to 1/36 of a yard as 36 inches make 1 yard.

1 Inch=0.0833 Foots

1 Inch=0.0277 Yards

## What is a Centimeter?

A centimeter is a unit of length denoted as “cm” used in the US and the UK systems of measurements. A centimeter is 1/100 of a Meter. If you remember school days you must have used the ruler with a centimeter on one side and inches on the other side.

That ruler has 12 inches or 1 foot and 30 centimeters. If you see the ruler closely 30 cm is a little short than the 12 inches.

So 11.8 inches is equal to 30 centimeters

11.8 Inches = 30 centimeters

1 Inch = 2.54 Centimeters

And

30 centimeters(cm) = 11.8 Inches

1 Centimeter(cm) = 0.39 Inches

Let’s look at How other Units of Measurement can be converted into Inches.
