# CSS font-size units PX to PT, IN, EM, REM conversion

I need to calculate how many Pixels are in 1 Point and other CSS units. For example how can I convert 11 pixels into points, or 12 points into pixels ?

Hi,

You can convert font size by the following calculations:

1 Pixel = 0.75 Point
1 Point = 1.3333 Pixels
1 Pixel = 0.010416666 Inches
1 Inch = 96 Pixels

Font size units Em and Rem are relative to other font sizes. Em is related to font size of the parent element. Rem is related to font size of the root element. For example, if the size of parent element is 16px, then 1.5 em is equal to 24px. When the size of root element is 18px, then 1.5 rem is equal to 27px.

To convert font sizes, you can also use this table:

 Pixels Points Inches 8 px 6 pt 0.083333 in 9 px 6.75 pt 0.093750 in 9.33 px 7 pt 0.097187 in 10 px 7.5 pt 0.104166 in 10.66 px 8 pt 0.111041 in 11 px 8.25 pt 0.114583 in 12 px 9 pt 0.125000 in 13 px 9.75 pt 0.135416 in 13.33 px 10 pt 0.138854 in 14 px 10.5 pt 0.145833 in 14.66 px 11 pt 0.152708 in 15 px 11.25 pt 0.156250 in 16 px 12 pt 0.166666 in 17 px 12.75 pt 0.177083 in 17.33 px 13 pt 0.180520 in 18 px 13.5 pt 0.187500 in 18.66 px 14 pt 0.194375 in 19 px 14.25 pt 0.197916 in 20 px 15 pt 0.208333 in 21 px 15.75 pt 0.218750 in 21.33 px 16 pt 0.222187 in 22 px 16.5 pt 0.229166 in 22.66 px 17 pt 0.236041 in 23 px 17.25 pt 0.239583 in 24 px 18 pt 0.250000 in 25 px 18.75 pt 0.260416 in 25.33 px 19 pt 0.263854 in 26 px 19.5 pt 0.270833 in 26.66 px 20 pt 0.277708 in 27 px 20.25 pt 0.281250 in 28 px 21 pt 0.291666 in 29 px 21.75 pt 0.302083 in 29.33 px 22 pt 0.305520 in 30 px 22.5 pt 0.312500 in 30.66 px 23 pt 0.319375 in 31 px 23.25 pt 0.322916 in 32 px 24 pt 0.333333 in
