To convert feet (ft) to centimeters (cm), we need to use a conversion factor. The conversion factor is based on the relationship between the two units of measurement. In this case, we know that 1 foot is equal to 30.48 centimeters.
So, to convert 5.11 feet to centimeters, we can multiply 5.11 by 30.48:
5.11 feet x 30.48 cm/foot = 155.1888 cm
This means that 5.11 feet is equal to 155.1888 cm. However, it’s important to note that this is a precise conversion, as we have used the exact value of the conversion factor.
To express the result in a more practical form, we can round the number of centimeters to a certain number of decimal places. In this case, if we round to two decimal places, we get:
5.11 feet x 30.48 cm/foot = 155.19 cm (rounded to two decimal places)
Therefore, 5.11 feet is approximately equal to 155.19 cm when expressed in centimeters.
