Work height calculator for adults


Theoretical basics of the BMI:

The BMI is calculated from the body weight [kg] divided by the square of the body height [m2]. The formula is:
BMI = body weight: (height in m)2. The unit of the BMI is therefore kg / m2.

This means that a person who is 160 cm tall and weighs 60 kg has a BMI of 23.4
[60: (1.6 m)2 = 23,4].

The "desirable" BMI depends on age. The following table shows BMI values ​​for different age groups:
