A **linear inches calculator** is a **powerful tool** used to determine the **total linear inches to inches** of an object by adding its **length**, **width**, and **height**.

**For Example……**

60 + 40 + 5 = **105 linear inches**

A suitcase measuring **26″ x 18″ x 10″** (length x width x height):

26 + 18 + 10 = **54 linear inches**

A moving box measuring **20″ x 20″ x 15″**:

20 + 20 + 15 = **55 linear inches**

A TV box measuring **60″ x 40″ x 5″**:

## Linear Inches Calculator

Length (in) | Width (in) | Height (in) | Linear Inches | Conversion Equation |
---|---|---|---|---|

26 | 18 | 10 | 54 | 26 + 18 + 10 = 54 |

30 | 20 | 12 | 62 | 30 + 20 + 12 = 62 |

36 | 24 | 20 | 80 | 36 + 24 + 20 = 80 |

22 | 14 | 9 | 45 | 22 + 14 + 9 = 45 |

28 | 16 | 12 | 56 | 28 + 16 + 12 = 56 |

32 | 18 | 14 | 64 | 32 + 18 + 14 = 64 |

24 | 15 | 11 | 50 | 24 + 15 + 11 = 50 |

40 | 30 | 20 | 90 | 40 + 30 + 20 = 90 |

## Linear Inches Conversion Formula

The basic formula for calculating linear inches is straightforward:

**Linear Inches = Length + Width + Height**

An **advanced formula** can be used when dealing with **irregular shapes** or when more **precise measurements** are required:

**Linear Inches = Longest Side + [(2 x Width) + (2 x Height)] / 2**

This formula is particularly useful for objects with **tapered** or **curved sides**. Let’s look at some examples:

- A
**trapezoidal shipping box**:- Longest side:
**30″** - Width at widest point:
**20″** - Width at narrowest point:
**15″** - Height:
**10″**

**60 linear inches** - Longest side:
- A
**cylindrical tube**:- Length:
**48″** - Diameter:
**6″**

**60 linear inches** - Length:

## How do I calculate linear inches?

To calculate linear inches:

**Measure**the**length**,**width**, and**height**of the object in inches.**Add**these three measurements together.- The
**sum**is the total**linear inches**.

For **irregular shapes**, use the advanced formula mentioned earlier, measuring the longest side and using the average of the widest and narrowest points for width and height.

### How many inches is 62 linear inches?

The **62 linear inches** represents the **sum** of an object’s length, width, and height.

For example, a suitcase measuring **28″ x 20″ x 14″** would be **62 linear inches** (28 + 20 + 14 = 62).

## What is a 62 linear inches luggage example?

A **62 linear inch luggage** could have the following dimensions:

- Length:
**26 inches** - Width:
**18 inches** - Height:
**18 inches**

26 + 18 + 18 = **62 linear inches**

This size is significant because many airlines use **62 linear inches** as the **maximum allowed size** for checked baggage without incurring oversized baggage fees.

## Is a linear foot 12 inches?

Yes, a **linear foot** is equal to **12 inches**. The term “linear foot” is often used in **construction** and **lumber industries**. It’s important to note that linear feet and linear inches are different units of measurement:

**1 linear foot = 12 linear inches****1 linear yard = 3 linear feet = 36 linear inches**

## What size luggage is 62 linear inches?

Luggage that measures **62 linear inches** can have various dimension combinations. Some common examples include:

**30″ x 17″ x 15″**(30 + 17 + 15 = 62)**28″ x 20″ x 14″**(28 + 20 + 14 = 62)**26″ x 22″ x 14″**(26 + 22 + 14 = 62)

## How to measure linear inches for luggage

To measure linear inches for luggage:

- Use a
**tape measure**or**ruler**. - Measure the
**length**from one end to the other at the longest point. - Measure the
**width**from side to side at the widest point. - Measure the
**height**from bottom to top, including**wheels**and**handles**. **Add**these three measurements together to get the total**linear inches**.

**Note**: Always measure from the **outermost points**, including any protrusions like wheels, handles, or pockets.

**What size luggage is 80 linear inches?**

Luggage measuring **80 linear inches** is considered **oversized** by most airlines. Some dimension combinations for **80 linear inch luggage** could be:

**32″ x 25″ x 23″**(32 + 25 + 23 = 80)**36″ x 24″ x 20″**(36 + 24 + 20 = 80)**40″ x 22″ x 18″**(40 + 22 + 18 = 80)

These sizes are typically used for **large sports equipment**, **musical instruments**, or **specialized shipping containers**.

**101 LCM baggage American Airlines**

American Airlines’ baggage policy states that checked bags must not exceed **62 linear inches** (157 cm) in total dimensions (length + width + height). A bag measuring **101 cm** (39.7 inches) in any single dimension would likely exceed this limit when the other dimensions are added.

For example, if a bag’s longest side is **101 cm** (39.7″), and its other dimensions are **30 cm** (11.8″) and **26 cm** (10.2″), the total linear inches would be:

39.7″ + 11.8″ + 10.2″ = **61.7 linear inches** or **157 cm**

This bag would be at the **maximum allowed size** for American Airlines. Any larger, and it would incur **oversized baggage fees**.
