8.0 Millimeter to Inch
Convert 8.0 (eight) Millimeters to Inches (mm to in) with our conversion calculator.
8.0 Millimeters to Inches equals 0.3150 in.
To convert millimeters (mm) to inches, we use the conversion rate where 1 inch equals 25.4 millimeters. The basic formula for this conversion is: Inches = Millimeters รท 25.4. Now, to convert 8.0 mm to inches, we apply this formula:
\([8.0 \, \text{mm} \times \frac{1 \, \text{inch}}{25.4 \, \text{mm}} \approx 0.315 \, \text{inches}]\)
Hence, 8.0 mm is approximately equal to 0.315 inches. The calculation is straightforward: you take the number of millimeters you want to convert and divide it by the value of one inch in millimeters (25.4 mm). This conversion is essential in fields that require precise measurements and in daily life when one needs to convert measurements from the metric system (widely used worldwide) to the imperial system, still in use in the United States for many applications.
Now, here are 7 items that are approximately 8.0 mm in length:

A standard graphite pencil lead
 Often found in a diameter of 0.7 to 0.9 mm, but mechanical pencil leads can be this length.

A small paperclip
 Length varies, but a small one can be approximately 8.0 mm long.

A grain of rice
 Depending on the variety, can be around this length.

A sesame seed
 Often less, but some larger seeds can approach this length.

The width of 3 stacked U.S. dimes
 Each U.S. dime has a thickness of approximately 1.35 mm, so stacked, they'd come close to this length.

USB TypeC connector plug length
 The plug itself is about 8.3 mm wide, so very close to this length in another measurement.

A small button
 Buttons on clothing can vary widely, but small decorative buttons can be about this diameter or length.
Each of these items provides a tangible sense of how small a length of 8.0 mm is, illustrating the measurement's scale in everyday objects.
