How to convert square centimeters to square inches (cm² to in²)
The formula for converting square centimeters to square inches is: in² = cm² × 0.15500031. To calculate the square centimeter value in square inches first substitute the square centimeter value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 square centimeter in square inches we follow these steps:
in² = cm² × 0.15500031
in² = 1 × 0.15500031
in² = 0.15500031
In other words, 1 square centimeter is equal to 0.15500031 square inches.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 square centimeters to square inches is:
- Understand the conversion formula: in² = cm² × 0.15500031
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for cm² so the formula becomes: in² = 2 × 0.15500031
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 0.15500031 = 0.31000062 in²
In summary, 2 square centimeters is equal to 0.31000062 square inches.
Converting square inches to square centimeters
In order to convert the other way around i.e. square inches to square centimeters, you would use the following formula: cm² = in² × 6.4516. To convert square inches to square centimeters first substitute the square inch value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 square inch in square centimeters we follow these steps:
cm² = in² × 6.4516
cm² = 1 × 6.4516
cm² = 6.4516
Or in other words, 1 square inch is equal to 6.4516 square centimeters.
