Do you know how to calculate BMI?
Body mass index calculation is very straightforward. Calculating body mass index requires only two measurements, height & weight.
Metric Imperial BMI Formula
The metric bmi formula accepts weight measurements in kilograms & height measurements in either cm's or meters.
1 meter = 100cms
meters² = meters * meters
( kg/m² )
|weight in kilograms|
|height in meters²|
For example, my height is 169 cm while weight is 66 kg. We substitute the value into formula,
BMI(kg/m²) = 66 kg
169 m X 169 m
= 23.1 kg/m2
If we refer to BMI table, 23.1 is under class of normal status of body weight.
|25 - 29.9||Overweight|
|30 & Above||Obese|
We hope the formula above can help you to calculate your BMI and be more alert regarding your BMI and obesity.
