## How do you convert mm to cm?

One mm is one “millimeter” or one one-thousandth of a meter (1 mm = 1/1000 m). One cm is one “centimeter” or one one-hundredth of a meter (1 cm = 1/100 m). Therefore, 1 cm = 10 mm. To convert mm to cm, divide the number of mm by 10 to get the number of cm.

## Which of the following will you measure in centimeters?

Here are some things that can be measured in centimeters: The waist size of a pair of trousers. Length of the fish caught. The radius of a car’s tires. The distance between a person’s eyes.

**Is mm the same as cm?**

The millimeter (mm) is a unit of length which is equal to one thousandth of a meter so a meter has 1,000 millimeters. The centimeter (cm) is also a unit of length which is ten times larger than a millimeter and is equal to one hundredth of a meter; therefore, there are 100 centimeters in a meter.

**What is mm size?**

A measure of length in the metric system. A millimeter is one thousandth of a meter. There are 25 millimeters in an inch. Tumor sizes are often measured in millimeters (mm) or centimeters.

### Is mm same as cm?

### How do you measure centimeters on a ruler?

Each centimeter is labeled on the ruler (1-30). Example: You take out a ruler to measure the width of your fingernail. The ruler stops at 1 cm, meaning that your nail is precisely 1 cm wide. So if you counted five lines from 9 cm, for instance, you’d get 9.5 cm (or 95 mm).

**What is milliliters used to measure?**

A milliliter, abbreviated as ml or mL, is a unit of volume in the metric system. One milliliter is equal to one thousandth of a liter, or 1 cubic centimeter. In the imperial system, that’s a small amount: . 004 of a cup .

**How do you find the number of millimeters per centimeter?**

Multiply the centimeter value by 10. There are 10 millimeters in every 1 centimeter. This means that you will need to find the number of millimeters per centimeter by multiplying the centimeter measurement by 10. The “millimeter” is a smaller unit than the “centimeter,” even though both are derived from the basic “meter.”

#### What is a centimeter used to measure?

A centimeter is a metric unit of measurement used for measuring the length of an object. It is written as cm. The three standard tools of measurement are: 1. Ruler : A ruler is the most common measurement tool in mathematics.

#### How many millimeters are there in a meter?

The prefix centi- means “one-hundredth,” so there are 100 centimeters in every meter. The prefix milli- means “one-thousandth,” so there are 1000 millimeters in every meter. Millimeters and centimeters are only separated by one tens place, which means that there are ultimately 10 millimeters for every centimeter.

**What is the relation of cm to other standard units?**

Relation to other standard units: 1 A meter has 100 centimeters. 2 10 millimeters make one centimeter. 3 The centimeter can be written as cm. 4 While calculating the surface area of an object, the unit of measurement becomes cm 2. 5 While measuring the volume of an object, the unit of measurement becomes cm 3 .
