BMI Formula

BMI formula (Body Mass Index Formula) is a manual calculation of BMI instead of BMI calculator.calculating BMI needs only two measurements weight and height.We can calculate it by two ways:

1-BMI Metric Formula.

BMI={Weight(kilograms)}/(Height(meters))^2

The units of measure for the original formula is thus “kilograms per meter squared” (kg/m2).

2-BMI English Formula.

The BMI Formula Using “Pounds & Inches”  instead of ‘kilogram & meters is known as English formula.

BMI={Weight(pounds)*703}/(Height(inches))^2 

Where,

Weight(kg)={Weight(pounds)}/2.204623

And

Height(meters)= {height(inches)}/39.37001

So,

BMI={Weight(Pounds)}/2.204623/({Height(inches)}/39.37001)^2

 

BMI Conversion Factor.

BMI  Conversion Factor=(39.37001)^2/(2.204623)=703.07

 Calculate your BMI then go to the table to find your category.
