# BSA Calculator

In medicine, Body Surface Area (BSA) of a human body is calculated to determine the surface area of the one's body to measure the metabolic mass for dosages. There were various formulas to calculate the BSA. This calculator helps you to estimate the body surface area as described by Gehan and George formula. Here the weight is converted to kilograms, height to centimeters, and the BSA is expressed in terms of square meters.

#### Formula:

BSA (m^{2}) = 0.0235 * Height (cm) ^{0.42246} * Weight (kg) ^{0.51456}

#### Example

**A man measuring 160 cm, weighing 55 kgs , according to Gehan and George will have body surface area of **

= 0.0235 x 160 ^{0.42246} x 55^{0.51456}

=1.5767 m^{2}
