Step 1

The conversion factor for ft2 and cm2 units is:

1.0 ft2 = 929.03 cm2

Hence, the area of aluminium foil in cm2 units is 929.03 cm2.

Step 2

The formula for calculating thickness of aluminium foil is given in the equation (1).

The thickness of given aluminium foil is calculated in cm units in the equation (2).

Step 3

The conversion factor for centimeter and millimetre units is:

1 cm = 10 mm

Hence, 1.57 × 10-3 cm = 1.57 × 10-3 × 10 mm
