## How to convert

1 meter (m) = 100 centimeter (cm). Meter (m) is a unit of Length used in Metric system. Centimeter (cm) is a unit of Length used in Metric system.

## Meter - Unit of Distance / Length

**Unit Symbol / Abbreviation:** m

** Where the unit used in the World:**

The meter is used as a unit to measure medium distances or lengths.

It's a standard measure for short distances (up to 1 km long), in real estate and construction, supply materials, vehicle and aircraft dimensions, short geographical distances and directions in most countries excluding the USA where foot and yard are still widely used for this purpose.

The meter is widely used in most countries and is the official unit for medium lengths and distances (for example, road signs in continental Europe show maximum vehicle hight in meters). Primary exceptions are the United States of America, and some countries where feet and yards are used in limited extent: the United Kingdom and Canada, where the yard remains in limited use as a part of imperial system (for example, yards are used on road signs for shorter distances in the United Kingdom and feet are widely used in construction and real estate in Canada).

**Definition of the Unit:**

The meter (metre in UK spelling) is a unit of length/distance in the metric system (SI Unit system) equivalent to the length of the path travelled by light during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second (in vacuum, defined since 1983).

1 m is equivalent to 3.28084 ft or 0.000621371 miles.

**Equivalents in other units and scales:**

- 1 m = 1000 millimeters (mm)
- 1 m = 100 centimeters (cm)
- 1 m = 10 decimeters (dm)
- 1 m = 0.001 kilometers (km)
- 1 m = 3.28084 feet (ft)
- 1 megameter = 1000000 m
- 1 gigameter = 1000000000 m
- Units of length in the metric SI system are based on multiples or fractions of a meter.
- There are measurements of length/distance in the metric SI system greater than a meter that can be expressed in terms of metres.

1 m is equivalent to 3.28084 ft or 1.09361 yd.

The meter is a unit of length in the metric SI system and is equivalent to the length of the path travelled by light during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second (in vacuum, defined since 1983).

**metres**(in British English spelling).

## Centimeter: A Unit of Length

The centimeter (cm) is a unit of length in the metric system, which is the most widely used system of measurement in the world. The centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a meter, which is the SI base unit of length. The centimeter is also a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI), which is the official system of measurement for science and engineering. The symbol for centimeter is cm. The centimeter is used for measuring small distances and dimensions, such as the width of a fingernail or the diameter of a coin. The centimeter is also used for measuring areas and volumes, such as the area of a sheet of paper or the volume of a water bottle. The centimeter is named after the centi prefix, which means one hundredth in Latin. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, usage and conversion of the centimeter as a unit of length.

- To convert centimeters to millimeters, multiply by 10. For example, 10 cm = 10 × 10 = 100 mm.
- To convert centimeters to meters, divide by 100. For example, 10 cm = 10 / 100 = 0.1 m.
- To convert centimeters to kilometers, divide by 100000. For example, 10 cm = 10 / 100000 = 0.0001 km.
- To convert centimeters to inches, multiply by 0.3937. For example, 10 cm = 10 × 0.3937 = 3.937 in.
- To convert centimeters to feet, multiply by 0.0328. For example, 10 cm = 10 × 0.0328 = 0.328 ft.
- To convert centimeters to yards, multiply by 0.0109. For example, 10 cm = 10 × 0.0109 = 0.109 yd.
- To convert centimeters to miles, multiply by 0.0000062137. For example, 10 cm = 10 × 0.0000062137 = 0.000062137 mi.
- To convert centimeters to nanometers, multiply by 10000000. For example, one cm = one × 10000000 = 10000000 nm.
- To convert centimeters to micrometers, multiply by 10000. For example, one cm = one × 10000 = 10000 µm.
