Assuming you would like an answer in terms of length, 1.2 inches is equal to about 3.048 centimeters. In terms of other things you might be familiar with, 1.2 inches is just slightly longer than a one dollar bill, slightly shorter than a sheet of paper from a standard printer, and just a smidge longer than a AA battery.

When it comes to human beings, 1.2 inches is not very much at all. The average person has a fingertip to elbow length of about 20 inches, so 1.2 inches is only about 6% of that (or one sixteenth). For perspective, if someone’s head was the size of a basketball, 1.2 inches would be about the size of a grape.

Other things that are 1.2 inches include: a die from a pair of dice, a little over half of a AA battery, the width of a standard number 2 pencil, the diameter of a quarter, the size of a standard USB port, and the length of a thumbtack.

In short, 1.2 inches is a very small length that is hard to visualize without some sort of reference.
