A foot (abbreviation 'ft') and a centimeter (abbreviation 'cm') are both units of length in different measurement systems.
A foot is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems. It is equal to 12 inches or 1/3 of a yard. This has been used for a long time in many parts of the world, and is still the standard for measuring lengths and distances in the United States and the United Kingdom.
A centimeter, on the other hand, is a unit of length in the metric system, the current standard measurement system for science, engineering, and international commerce. It is 1/100th of a meter, the base unit of length in the metric system.
The conversion from foot to centimeter is quite simple. Since one foot equals 30.48 centimeters, you can multiply the number of feet by 30.48 to get the equivalent in centimeters.
1 foot = 30.48 centimeters
Vice versa, to convert centimeters to feet, divide the number of centimeters by 30.48.
1 centimeter = 0.0328 feet
