Enter your height and weight into the calculate to determine your estimated body surface area.

## BSA Formula

The following formula is used to calculate your body surface area.

BSA = SQRT ( H * W / 3600 )

- Where BSA is your body surface area (m^2)
- H is your height (cm)
- W is your weight (kg)

This equation can be adjusted to use pounds and inches as the units as well. The calculator does this for you.

## BSA Definition

## FAQ

**What is BSA?**

BSA stands for body surface area. It’s a measure of the total estimated surface area that a human body occupies based on height and weight. The formula was derived from averages over populations, so the exact surface area may vary.

**What is a normal BSA?**

There is no definite good amount of body surface area. Since muscle also increases size and surface area, sometimes a higher BSA is not bad. A better indicator of fitness and health is body fat percentage.
