If you came to this page, you already see the result work of the online calculator. In the left (or top) field you see the value of 1 "in" on the right (or bottom) box you see the value of result is equal to 25.4 "mm". Write briefly: 1 "in" = 25.4 "mm"

Convert 1 inch in mm by conversion tables

We have briefly reviewed how to use the unit Converter on this page, but this is only part of the features of the page service. We made an interesting possibility to compute all possible values for units of measure in the lower tables. These tables are used to convert basic units of measurement: Metric conversion chart, US Survey conversion chart, International conversion chart, Astronomical conversion chart. Please, find these 4 tables at the bottom of this page they have the headers:

  • All conversions of 1 inch in the Metric System Units

If you enter a test number in any field of web calculator (field of inches or millimeters it doesn't matter), for example 1 as it is now, you not only get the result in 25.4 millimeters but also a huge list of computed values for all unit types in the lower tables. Without doing your own search and making the transition to other pages of the website, you can use our conversion tables to calculate all the possible results for main units. Try delete and again entering into the calculator a value of 1 inch and you will see that all the conversion results in the lower tables will are recalculated for 1 (in). The calculated data in the conversions tables change dynamically and all transformations are performed synchronously with converting inches in the page calculator.

How many millimeters are in 1 inch?

To answer this question, we start with a brief definition of inch and millimeter, and their purpose. The inch and millimeter units of length which can be converted one to another using a conversion factor which is equal to 25.4. This coefficient answers the question how many millimeters are equivalent to one inch. The value of this multiplier determines the basic value to calculate all other lengths, sizes and other transformations for these units (inch and millimeter), it is enough to know the value, i.e. to remember that 1 inch = 25.4 (mm). Knowing the number of millimeters in one inch by simple multiplication we can calculate any values. Let's do a simple calculation using the multiplication:

1″ × 25.4 = 25.4 (mm)

Thus it is seen that after multiplying by the coefficient we get the following relationship:

1 Inch = 25.4 Millimeters

How much is 1 inch in millimeters?

We have already seen how to convert these two values and how change inches to millimeters. So in summary, you can write all possible results that have the same meaning.

1 inch to mm = 25.4 mm
1 inch in mm = 25.4 mm
1 inch into mm = 25.4 mm
1 in = 25.4 mm
1″ = 25.4 mm
1″ is 25.4 mm
one inch = 25.4 mm

How to convert 1 inch into millimeters? All rules and methods.

To convert 1 inch into millimeters we can use many ways:

  • calculation using the formula;
  • calculation using the proportions;
  • calculation using the online converter of the current page;
  • calculation using the offline calculator "InchPro Decimal".

Calculating 1 inch to mm formula for lengths and values.

In the calculations for inches and millimeters, we will use the formula presented below that would quickly get the desired result.

    Y (in) × 25.4 = X (mm)
    Y - value of inches
    X - result in millimeters

That is, you need to remember that 1 inch is equal 25.4 millimeters, and when converting inches just multiply the number of inches (in this case 1 inch) by a factor of 25.4. For example, we transform the set of values 1.0″, 2.0″, 3.0″, 4.0″, 5.0″ into millimeters and get the result in the following examples:

    1.0 (in) × 25.4 = 25.4 (mm)
    2.0 (in) × 25.4 = 50.8 (mm)
    3.0 (in) × 25.4 = 76.2 (mm)
    4.0 (in) × 25.4 = 101.6 (mm)
    5.0 (in) × 25.4 = 127.0 (mm)

In all variants we multiplied the all inches in range from 1.0″ to 5.0″ with the same ratio of 25.4 and got the correct results in calculations.

The calculation using mathematical proportions to convert 1 inch into millimeters

To calculate the proportions you need to know the reference value in millimeters for 1 inch and according to the rules of arithmetic we can calculate any value in millimeters for any length in inches. See the next examples. We form the proportion for 3 values our inches  1.0″, 2.0″, 3.0″ and calculate results values in millimeters:

    1 (in) — 25.4 (mm)
    1.0 (in) — X (mm)
    Solve the above proportion for X to obtain:
    X = 1.0(in) × 25.4(mm) ÷
                            1(in) = 25.4(mm) 
1 (in) — 25.4 (mm) 2.0 (in) — X (mm) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 2.0(in) × 25.4(mm) ÷ 1(in) = 50.8(mm)
1 (in) — 25.4 (mm) 3.0 (in) — X (mm) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 3.0(in) × 25.4(mm) ÷ 1(in) = 76.2(mm)

All proportions used reference value 1 inch = 25.4 mm

Calculation of values using inch online calculator on the page

You can use our basic universal online converter on the current web page and convert any your length dimensions and distances between inches and millimeters in any directions free and fast.

Currently, the field for inches contains the number 1 (in) you can change it. Just enter any number into field for inches (for example any value from our set: 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 inches or any other value) and get the fast result into field for millimeters. How to use the inch online calculator you can more detail read at this link manual for the calculator.

For example, we take the 16 values into inches and will try to calculate the result values in millimeters. Also, we will use the web calculator (you can find it at the top of this page). In the set up a table in the left margin we write the value in inches in the right margin you see the values that you should obtain after calculation. You can check it right now, without leaving the site and make sure that the calculator works correctly and quickly. In all calculations, we used the ratio 25.4 which helps us to get the desired values of computation results in millimeters. Please, see the results in the next table:
