**1 (Centimeter, cm)
** - unit for measure
distances, lengths, heights and widths in Metric Units. One centimeter is equal
to 0.393700787402 inches.

On this page we consider in detail all variants for convert 1 centimeter to inches and all opportunities how to convert centimeters with usage comprehensive examples, related charts and conversion tables for centimeters. Here you will find all the ways for calculating and converting centimeters in inches and back. If you want to know how many inches are in 1 centimeter you can obtain the answer in several ways:

- convert 1 centimeter using the online conversion on this page;
- calculate 1 centimeter using calculator InchPro from our software collection for offline converting units;
- apply arithmetic calculations and conversions for 1 centimeter outlined in this article.

To indicate centimeters, we will use the abbreviation "cm" to
indicate inches we
will use the
abbreviation "in". All options to convert "cm" to
"in" we will look more detail in individual
topics below. So, we're starting explore all avenues of transformation
**one** centimeter and
conversions between centimeters and inches.

To convert 1 centimeter into inches we consider using the online
converter on the web page. The
online converter has very simple interface and will help us quickly convert our centimeters.
The online
centimeter converter has an adaptive shape for different devices and therefore for
monitors it looks like the left and right
input fields but on tablets and mobile phones it looks like the top and bottom input fields. If
you
want convert any centimeter values, you must only enter required value in the left (or
top) input field and
automatically you get the result in the right (or bottom) field. Under each field you see a more
detailed result of the calculation and the coefficient of 0.393700787402 which is used in the
calculations.
The big green string, under the input fields - **"1 Centimeter
= 0.393700787402 Inches"** further enhances and shows final result of
the conversion. Calculator for converting units of measurement
works symmetrically in both directions. If you enter any value in any field, you will get the
result
in the opposite field. Clicking on the arrow icons between the input fields you can swap the
fields
and perform other calculations. We are all made for easily converting any values
between centimeters and
inches.

*Results conversion 1 centimeter into inches.
1 centimeter to "in" is equal to 0.393700787402 inches.*

If you came to this page, you already see the result work of the online calculator. In the left
(or top) field you
see the value of 1 "cm" on the right (or bottom) box you see the value of
result is equal to
0.393700787402 "in". Write briefly: **1 "cm" = 0.393700787402
"in"**

We have briefly reviewed how to use the unit Converter on this page, but this is only part of the features of the page service. We made an interesting possibility to compute all possible values for units of measure in the lower tables. These tables are used to convert basic units of measurement: Metric conversion chart, US Survey conversion chart, International conversion chart, Astronomical conversion chart. Please, find these 4 tables at the bottom of this page they have the headers:

**All conversions of 1 centimeter in the Metric System Units****All conversions of 1 centimeter in the US Survey Units****All conversions of 1 centimeter in the International Units****All conversions of 1 centimeter in the Astronomical Units**

To answer this question, we start with a brief definition of centimeter
and inch, and their purpose.
The centimeter and inch units of length which can be converted one to
another using a conversion
factor which is equal to 0.393700787402. This coefficient answers the question how many
inches are equivalent to one centimeter. The value of this multiplier determines the basic
value to calculate all other lengths, sizes and other transformations for these
units (centimeter and inch), it is enough to know the value, i.e. to
remember that **1 centimeter = 0.393700787402 (in)**.
Knowing the number of inches in one centimeter by simple multiplication
we can calculate any values. Let's do a simple calculation using the multiplication:

**1 (cm) × 0.393700787402 = 0.393700787402
(in)**

Thus it is seen that after multiplying by the coefficient we get the following relationship:

**1 Centimeter = 0.393700787402 Inches**

We have already seen how to convert these two values and how change centimeters to inches. So in summary, you can write all possible results that have the same meaning.

**
1 centimeter to inches = 0.393700787402″ (in)
1 cm in inches = 0.393700787402″ (in)
1 cm into inches = 0.393700787402″ (in)
1 cm in = 0.393700787402″ (in)
1 cm is 0.393700787402″ inches
one centimeter = 0.393700787402 inches**

To convert 1 centimeter into inches we can use many ways:

- calculation using the formula;
- calculation using the proportions;
- calculation using the online converter of the current page;
- calculation using the offline calculator "InchPro Decimal".

In the calculations for centimeters and inches, we will use the formula presented below that would quickly get the desired result.

Y (cm) × 0.393700787402 = X (in) Y - value of centimeters X - result in inches

That is, you need to remember that 1 centimeter is equal 0.393700787402 inches, and when converting centimeters just multiply the number of centimeters (in this case 1 centimeter) by a factor of 0.393700787402. For example, we transform the set of values 1.0 cm, 2.0 cm, 3.0 cm, 4.0 cm, 5.0 cm into inches and get the result in the following examples:

1.0 (cm) × 0.393700787402 = 0.393700787402 (in) 2.0 (cm) × 0.393700787402 = 0.787401574803 (in) 3.0 (cm) × 0.393700787402 = 1.1811023622 (in) 4.0 (cm) × 0.393700787402 = 1.57480314961 (in) 5.0 (cm) × 0.393700787402 = 1.96850393701 (in)

In all variants we multiplied the all centimeters in range from 1.0 (cm) to 5.0 (cm) with the same ratio of 0.393700787402 and got the correct results in calculations.

To calculate the proportions you need to know the reference value in inches for 1 centimeter and according to the rules of arithmetic we can calculate any value in inches for any length in centimeters. See the next examples. We form the proportion for 3 values our centimeters 1.0 cm, 2.0 cm, 3.0 cm and calculate results values in inches:

1 (cm) — 0.393700787402 (in) 1.0 (cm) — X (in) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 1.0(cm) × 0.393700787402(in) ÷ 1(cm) = 0.393700787402(in)

1 (cm) — 0.393700787402 (in) 2.0 (cm) — X (in) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 2.0(cm) × 0.393700787402(in) ÷ 1(cm) = 0.787401574803(in)

1 (cm) — 0.393700787402 (in) 3.0 (cm) — X (in) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 3.0(cm) × 0.393700787402(in) ÷ 1(cm) = 1.1811023622(in)

All proportions used reference value 1 centimeter = 0.393700787402 inches

You can use our basic universal online converter on the current web page and convert any your length dimensions and distances between centimeters and inches in any directions free and fast.

Currently, the field for centimeters contains the number 1 (cm) you can change it. Just enter any number into field for centimeters (for example any value from our set: 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 centimeters or any other value) and get the fast result into field for inches. How to use the centimeter online calculator you can more detail read at this link manual for the calculator.

For example, we take the 16 values into centimeters and will try to calculate the result values in inches. Also, we will use the web calculator (you can find it at the top of this page). In the set up a table in the left margin we write the value in centimeters in the right margin you see the values that you should obtain after calculation. You can check it right now, without leaving the site and make sure that the calculator works correctly and quickly. In all calculations, we used the ratio 0.393700787402 which helps us to get the desired values of computation results in inches. Please, see the results in the next table:

Many people can hardly imagine the relationship between centimeter and inch. In this picture, you can clearly see the ratio of these quantities to understand them in real life. The ratio of the lengths of the segments is retained on screens with any resolution as for large monitors as well as for small mobile devices.

The graph shows the relative values the centimeters in the form of rectangular segments of different lengths and colors. As well as the visual representation of 1 (cm) with the reference value in inches.

The graphs of the relationship between centimeters and inches are expressed in the following colours:

- Green is the original length or distance in centimeters;
- Blue color is the scale in centimeters;
- Yellow color is the scale in inches.
