Centimeters and feet are measuring units to measure the length or heights of any object or a person. Now if we are given a value in centimeters and we need to convert it into equivalent value in feet unit, then how to convert cm to feet? It is possible dividing the value of length by 30.48. Also, check centimeter to foot calculator.
1cm = 1/30.48 feet
Hence, 1 cm = 0.0328084 feet
By multiplying the value of length by 0.0328084 we can convert cm into feet. Although, there are measuring instruments with which we can measure heights in centimeters (cm) or feet.

Feet are usually used to measure the height of a building, tower, or a person. But, if we have the measurements in cm, then we have to convert it into feet to represent the height. A centimeter is one-hundredth of a meter and a foot is 0.3048 meters.
CM to Feet Formula
To convert cm to feet we have to know the formula.
1 foot = 30.48 cm
Therefore,
1 cm = 1/30.48 feet
1 cm = 0.0328084 feet
For example, we need to convert 10 cm into feet.
Then, multiply 10 by 0.0328084 to get the result.
Hence, 10 cm = 10 x 0.0328084 feet = 0.328084 feet.
What is Centimeter?
A centimetre is a unit of length equal to one-hundredth of a metre. The symbol of the centimeter is cm. Meter is the SI base unit of measurement of length.
A centimetre is a component of a metric system. In the unit system, it is the base unit in the centimetre-gram-second.
The area of any shape corresponding to a centimeter is measured as cm^{2} or square cm. Similarly, the corresponding unit of volume is mentioned as cm^{3} or cubic centimetre.
- 1 cm = 0.01 meter & 1 meter = 100 cm
- 1 cm = 10 millimeters (mm)
- 1cm = 0.1 decimeter (dm)
- 1 cm = 0.00001 kilometer (km)
- 1 cm = 10000 micrometers
- 1 cm = 0.393701 inch
What is a foot?
A foot is a non-SI unit of distance or length. It measures approximately a third of a metre. The plural of foot is feet.
- 1 foot = 12 inches
- 1 foot = 304.8 millimeters
- 1 foot = 0.3048 meter
- 1 foot = 0.0003048 kilometer
- 3 feet = 1 yard
Convert CM to Feet
As we know,
1 foot = 0.3048 meters
1 meter = 1/0.3048 feet
100 cm = 3.28084 feet
1cm = (3.28084/100) feet
1 cm = 0.0328084 feet
Hence, the centimeter unit is converted into equivalent feet.
The SI base unit for length is the metre.
1 metre is equal to 100 cm, or 3.2808398950131 feet.
Feet Measurement in cm
From the above formula, we know,
1 cm = 0.0328084 feet
Hence, we can say;
1 foot = 1/ 0.0328084 cm
Or
1 foot = 30.479999 = 30.48
Example: 5.3 feet in cm.
How to Convert Centimeters into Foot + Inches?
To convert the value of length from centimeters to foot with inches, follow the below steps:
- Step 1: Convert cm to inches: Divide the length value by 2.54
- Step 2: Now divide the obtained value in step 1 by 12 to get value in feet
- Step 3: Subtract the product of 12 and obtained feet in step 2 from obtained value in step 1.
- Step 4: Now, write the value of length in feet and inches.
Let us understand by an example:
Example: Convert 150 centimeters into feet with inches.
Solution:
Step 1: Divide 150 by 2.54
150/2.54 = 59.05511811 inches
Step 2: Divide 59.05511811 inches by 12
59.05511811/12 = 4 feet
Step 3: Multiply 12 by 4 and subtract from 59.05511811 inches.
59.05511811 – (12×4) = 11.05511811 inches
Step 4: Therefore, the required value in feet and inches is:
150 cm = 4 ft 11.05511811 inches
