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

To answer this question, we start with a brief definition of inch
and centimeter, and their purpose.
The inch and centimeter units of length which can be converted one to
another using a conversion
factor which is equal to 2.54. This coefficient answers the question how many
centimeters are equivalent to one inch. The value of this multiplier determines the basic
value to calculate all other lengths, sizes and other transformations for these
units (inch and centimeter), it is enough to know the value, i.e. to
remember that **1 inch = 2.54 (cm)**.
Knowing the number of centimeters in one inch by simple multiplication
we can calculate any values. Let's do a simple calculation using the multiplication:

**1″ × 2.54 = 2.54
(cm)**

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

**1 Inch = 2.54 Centimeters**

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

**
1 inch to cm = 2.54 cm
1 inch in cm = 2.54 cm
1 inch into cm = 2.54 cm
1 in = 2.54 cm
1″ = 2.54 cm
1″ is 2.54 cm
one inch = 2.54 cm**

To convert 1 inch into centimeters 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 inches and centimeters, we will use the formula presented below that would quickly get the desired result.

Y (in) × 2.54 = X (cm) Y - value of inches X - result in centimeters

That is, you need to remember that 1 inch is equal 2.54 centimeters, and when converting inches just multiply the number of inches (in this case 1 inch) by a factor of 2.54. For example, we transform the set of values 1.0″, 2.0″, 3.0″, 4.0″, 5.0″ into centimeters and get the result in the following examples:

1.0 (in) × 2.54 = 2.54 (cm) 2.0 (in) × 2.54 = 5.08 (cm) 3.0 (in) × 2.54 = 7.62 (cm) 4.0 (in) × 2.54 = 10.16 (cm) 5.0 (in) × 2.54 = 12.7 (cm)

In all variants we multiplied the all inches in range from 1.0″ to 5.0″ with the same ratio of 2.54 and got the correct results in calculations.

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

1 (in) — 2.54 (cm) 1.0 (in) — X (cm) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 1.0(in) × 2.54(cm) ÷ 1(in) = 2.54(cm)

1 (in) — 2.54 (cm) 2.0 (in) — X (cm) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 2.0(in) × 2.54(cm) ÷ 1(in) = 5.08(cm)

1 (in) — 2.54 (cm) 3.0 (in) — X (cm) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 3.0(in) × 2.54(cm) ÷ 1(in) = 7.62(cm)

All proportions used reference value 1 inch = 2.54 cm

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

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

For example, we take the 13 values into inches and will try to calculate the result values in centimeters. 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 inches 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 2.54 which helps us to get the desired values of computation results in centimeters. Please, see the results in the next table:
