The chart below shows body surface area for typical heights and weights. Calculations were made using the DuBois & DuBois formula:

kg.425 x cm.725 x 0.007184

Weight is the horizontal axis, first in pounds, then in kilograms. Height is the vertical axis, first in inches, then in centimeters. Results are body surface areas in square meters.
