Pixel To Rem converter






Convert pixels to REM

This px to rem calculator converts pixels to the CSS unit REM. The conversion is based on the default font size of 16px, but can be changed.

With the CSS rem unit you can define a size relative to the font size of the HTML root tag.

The conversion works of course in both directions, just change the opposite input field.

An example
So if we take the default base font size as an example, than 1px represents 0.0625rem and, in the other direction, 1rem represents 16px.

EM vs. REM: The differences
Inside a sinlge document, the length of a REM unit is everywhere the same, it can just differ between documents. EM on the other side can differ between every element, because it is relative to the elements own font-size (excpetion is the font-size itself, in it EM is relative to the parent).

REM is the newer unit, older browsers don’t support it.
