How to calculate BMI (Body Mass Index) using SI units?
To find your BMI level using SI unit, follow the steps below.
Formula for BMI Calculation
BMI = (Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703
Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5"“24.9
Overweight = 25"“29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
Lets assume your weight to be 145lbs and height is 66.92
Step 2: Substitute the values in formula to get your BMI value.
BMI = ( Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703
BMI = (145 / (66.92 x 66.92 ) ) x 703
= (145 / 4478.28 ) x 703
BMI = 22.76
BMI is 22.76. Your BMI level is normal.
