## Formula for Centimeters to Meters Conversion

### How many meter in centimeter? (cm to m)

Formula to convert cm to m: Divide centimeter by 100 to get meter value

m = cm / 100

For example, To convert 120 cm to m:

m = 120 cm / 100 = 1.2 m

### How many centimeters in a meter? (m to cm)

Formula to convert m to cm: Multiply meter by 100 to get centimeter value

cm = m * 100

For example, to convert 5 m to cm:

cm = 5 m * 100 = 500 cm

## Frequently Asked Questions on Centimeter to Meter and Meter to Centimeter Conversion

• SI Unit of length is Meter.
Centimeter or cm is a standard unit and part of metric system
However, the Systems International (SI) has defined the 'Meter' as the fundamental unit for length.

• CGS stands for 'Centimeter', 'Gram' and 'Second'. CGS system is a group of 3 fundamental quantities to measure length, weight and time.
MKS stands for 'Meter', 'Kilogram' and 'Second'. MKS system is also a group of 3 fundamental quantities to measure length, mass and time.
MKS is bigger unit than CGS with Meter and Kilogram being used instead of Centimeter and Gram.
MKS superseded CGS though CGS is also widely used in branches of astrophysics and by scientists.

• They are not identical though SI also uses the same for length, Mass and Time.
In addition, SI has Ampere (for current), Kelvin (Temperature), Mole (amt of substance), Candela (intensity).
In total SI has 7 quantities or constants as against 3 in MKS.

• Both Meter and Metre are the same.
The British Spelling is 'Metre' whie the US spelling is Meter.
