By TOI Desk Report August 13, 2022 Update on : October 22, 2022

As a civilization, we always calculate any matter or substance’s height, width, and breadth. Knowing these measurements helps us plan, build and forecast in any civil society. Measuring any substance or matter is one of civilization’s most significant requirements. We cannot build if we don’t know the height, width, and breadth of what we are building. We cannot plan if we don’t know the measurements as well.

In calculating the height of any matter or substance, there are different standard units of measurement. For instance, in calculating the height of a human being, we typically use inches or meters (depending on the country). In calculating the height of a building example: The empire state building in New York, we use meters as the standard unit of measurement.

No matter the standard unit of measurement in use, one can typically convert them to other metrics. For instance, a meter can be converted to inches, and inches can be converted to height. In converting standard units of measurements, there are formulas used. Let us look at some of them using five feet, two inches (5 ft 2 inches or 5’2″).

**How much is 5’2″ in inches?**

Twelve inches make up one foot. In converting feet to inches, multiply the feet by 12. In converting inches to feet, we divide the given inches by 12.

**Example:**

Converting (5’2″) or 5.2 to inches

5.2 multiplied (X) 12 = 62.4 inches.

**Vice versa:**

Converting 62.4 inches to foots

62.4 divide (/) 12 = 5.2 (5’2”).

**How much is 5’2″ in cm?**

While there are twelve inches in every foot, there are 30.48 centimeters in every foot. In converting inches to centimeters, multiply (x) each inch by 30.48. In converting centimeters back to inches, divide (/) by 30.48.

**Example:**

Converting 5’2″ to centimeters

5.2 X 30.48 = 158.496

= 158.5 CM

**Vice versa:**

Converting 158.5cm back to inches

158.5 / 30.48 = 5.2001

= 5.2 (5’2″)

**How much is 5’2″ in meters (m)?**

A 100 cm makes 1 meter. This statement means that, 0.3048 meters make one foot. In converting from foot to meters, multiply (x) one foot by 0.3048. In converting meters to feet, divide (/) meter by 0.3048.

**Example:**

Converting 5’2″ to meters

5.2 x 0.3048 = 1.584

= 1.6M

**Vice versa:**

Converting 1.6 meters to foots

1.6 / 0.3048 = 5.249

= 5.2 (5’2″)

**How much is 5’2″ in millimeters?**

A 100 millimeters makes one centimeter, and a thousand millimeters makes one meter. It takes 304.8 millimeters to make one foot. In converting one foot to millimeters, multiply by 304.8. In converting millimeters to foot, divide by 304.8.

**Example:**

Converting 5’2″ to millimeters

5.2 x 304.8 = 1,584.96

= 1,585 mm

**Vice versa**

Converting 1,585 mm to foots

1, 585 / 304.8 = 5.2001

= 5.2 (5’2″)
