How many mm in a cm

To convert a centimeter measurement to a millimeter measurement, multiply the length by the conversion ratio.

Since one centimeter is **adequate to** 10 millimeters, **you'll be able to** use **this straightforward** formula to convert:

millimeters = centimeters × 10

The length in millimeters is **adequate to** the centimeters multiplied by 10.

For example, here's **the way to** convert 5 centimeters to millimeters using the formula above.

5 cm = (5 × 10) = 50 mm

There are 10 millimeters **in a very** centimeter, which is why we use this value **within the** formula above.

Our inch fraction calculator can add centimeters and millimeters together, and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial, and SI metric values.

Centimeters and millimeters are both units **accustomed** measure length. Keep reading **to find out** more about each unit of measure.

One centimeter is **adequate to** one-hundredth (1/100) of a meter, which is defined **because the** distance light travels **during a** vacuum **in a very** 1/299,792,458 second **amount**.

The centimeter, or centimeter, **may be a** multiple of the meter, which **is that the** SI base unit for length. **within the** **system of weights and measures**, "centi" **is that the** prefix for 10-2. Centimeters **may be** abbreviated as cm; **as an example**, 1 centimeter **is** written as 1 cm.

Metric rulers typically have 30 cm, which are represented by 30 large tick marks. **to urge** a rough idea of **the particular** length of a centimeter, **a customary** pencil **is simply** about 1 cm thick.

One millimeter is **adequate** one-thousandth (1/1,000) of a meter, which is defined **because the** distance light travels **in an exceedingly** vacuum **in an exceedingly** 1/299,792,458 second **interval**.

The millimeter, or millimetre, **could be a** multiple of the meter, which **is that the** SI base unit for length. **within the** **system of weights and measures**, "milli" **is that the** prefix for 10-3. Millimeters **are often** abbreviated as mm; **for instance**, 1 millimeter **is often** written as 1 mm.

Millimeters are often represented by **the tiniest** ticks on most metric rulers. **to urge** an **indicator** of **the scale**, the thickness of a US dime is 1.35mm.[1]

We recommend **employing a** ruler or **tape** for measuring length, **which might** be found at **an area** retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so **ensure** you get **the right** type for your needs.
