Enter the total cost ($) and the total area (cm^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cost Per Square Cm. 

Cost Per Square Cm Formula



  • CPSCM is the Cost Per Square Cm ($/cm^2)
  • C is the total cost ($)
  • A is the total area (cm^2)

To calculate Cost Per Square Cm, divide the total cost by the total area in square centimeters.

How to Calculate Cost Per Square Cm?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cost Per Square Cm.

  1. First, determine the total cost ($). 
  2. Next, determine the total area (cm^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CPSCM = C/ A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Cost Per Square Cm.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
