## What is an Inch?

Inch is a term that comes from a thumb. The concept is used to name a type of measure whose value has changed throughout history. In its original sense, the inch was equivalent to the width of the first phalanx of the thumb of the hand.

The inch as a unit occurs wherever lengths are used. So it is understandable that inches as a unit are used almost everywhere. Above all, of course, describe its size and dimensions about any product. Many people are first introduced to inches when shopping for a new monitor. For example, screen diagonal specs are given in inches on the packaging. Or when they buy a new bike, to describe the size of the wheels, measurements of the toes, recognize steel rods in construction, measurement of hydraulic and sanitary water pipes.

Inches are widely used in the construction sector since materials whose denomination and reference are given in inches. However, it can also be used as a reference for length and area measurements.

## What is a centimeter?

The term centi is derived from the Latin word “centum”, which means one-hundred. It was first used as “centi” by the French, who introduced the measurement when they created the metric system. When used as centi, it is defined as one-hundredth of a unit. Thus, a meter is 100 cm, or a centimeter is one-hundredth of a meter.

### Uses of centimeter

Maps, centimetres are used to make conversions from map scale to real-world scale (kilometers)

To represent the second moment of areas (cm4)

As the inverse of the Kayser, a CGS unit, and thus a non-SI metric unit of wavenumber: 1 kayser = 1 wave per centimeter; or, more generally, (wavenumber in kaysers) = 1/(wavelength in centimeters). The SI unit of wavenumber is the inverse meter, m−1.

## Conversion between inches and centimeters

One inch equals 2.54 centimeters, which was officially set in 1956. To convert from inches to centimeters, what must be done is to multiply the value in inches by 2.54. The result obtained will be the equivalent of centimeters.

Once we are clear about how many centimeters there are in an inch, the next step would be to understand the mechanism that will make us experts in deciphering the number of the first ones when they provide us with a value of “x” inches.

If you need to convert from centimeters to inches, divide the value in centimeters by 2.54, which will give you the value in inches. For example, 20 inches equals 50.8 centimeters; and 20 centimeters are 7.874015748031496 inches.

**The Inches to Centimeter formula is Inches * 2.54 = Centimeter**

For Example, convert 68 Inches to cm

inches x 2.54 =>68x 2.54= 172.72cm

so, 68 inches are equal to 172.72cm.
