**Meter** (abbreviation, m), also spelled as Metre(Commonwealth spelling), is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The SI unit symbol is m.

In the imperial system, a meter is equal to about 3.2 feet or 3 feet 3 inches.

The metric system is the standard of measurement used nearly everywhere in the world except in the United States; thus, it is the primary measurement system for scientific studies. Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.

### What is a Centimeter?

A **Centimeter** (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).

The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### How to Convert Meter to Centimeters?

To convert Meter to Centimeters, simply multiply the Meter value by 100.

The formula used to calculate Meter to Centimeters -

**d**_{(m)} = **d**_{(cm)} * 100

The distance *d* in Centimeters (cm) is equal to the distance *d* in Meters (m) multiplied by 100.

### How many Centimeters in a Meter

In simple terms, 1 m is equal to 100 cm.

The formula used is 1*100 = 100(cm)

### How many Meters in a Centimeter

1 Centimeter is equal to 0.01 Meters. So we can also say that there are 0.01 Meters in a Centimeter.
