Measure of Length

The meter is the primary unit of length in the International System of Units (SI),

The table of metric length:

1 kilometer (km) = 1000.000 meters
1 hectometer (hm) = 100.000 meters
1 dekameter (dam) = 10.000 meters
1 decimeter (dm) = 0.100 meter
1 centimeter (cm) = 0.010 meter
1 millimeter (mm) = 0.001 meter
1 micrometer (µm) = 0.000,001 meter
1 nanometer (nm) = 0.000,000,001 meter

The table may also be written:

1 meter
= 0.001 kilometer
= 0.01 hectometer
= 0.1 dekameter
= 10 decimeters
= 100 centimeters
= 1000 millimeters
= 1,000,000 micrometers
= 1,000,000,000 nanometers

Most common length denominations are:

1000 millimeters (mm) = 100 centimeters (cm)
100 centimeters (cm) = 1 meter (m)
