## Why would one convert inches to millimeters?

Converting millimeters to inches is a common task in engineering, manufacturing and construction.

Inches are imperial measurements that are normally used in the United States and United Kingdom. Millimeters are a unit of the metric system used worldwide. It is often necessary to convert inches to millimeters when following instructions of specifications in a unit unfamiliar to you.

Millimeters are used where high precision is required such as machining and fabrication. The smaller unit the simpler it is to allow for finer measurements. The metric system offers a logical system of measurement as converting between other metric units are simple and they are based on factors of 10.

## What are millimeters?

Millimeters are a small unit of length measurement in the metric system. One millimeter is equal to a thousandth of a meter. This means that millimeters are used when measuring small distances or dimensions such as the thickness of a sheet of paper or a small object.

Millimeters are widely used worldwide especially in engineering. They provide a convenient unit of measurement for fine details.

Millimeters are used in the fashion industry for jewelry and fabric widths. Millimeters are also used in meteorology to record rainfall or snowfall.

1000mm is equal to a meter which is the SI unit of length.

## What are inches?

Inches are mainly used in the United States as well as sometimes in the United Kingdom.

An inch is an imperial unit which is primarily used in the United States. It is defined as a twelth (1/12th) of a foot. Inches are used to measure smaller distances such as the length of a pencil or the width of a book. Rather than using decimals, Inches are often divided into fractions such as halves, quarters, and eighths.

Converting inches to centimeters involves multiplying by the conversion factor 2.54. For example, 100 inches would be 254 centimeters. The reverse is also true, to convert centimeters to inches you divide the number of centimeters by 2.54. For example, 50 centimeters would be approximately 19.69 inches.

## Is there a simple way to convert inches to mm?

The actual formula is mm = in * 25.4 which is approximately multiply by 25. If you multiply the amount of inches by 100 and then divide by 4 you will get an approximate answer. Worked Example: 3 inch x 300 = 100, 300 / 4 = 75mm. This method is close enough for many purposes.
