## What are Centimeters and Millimeters?

### What is a Centimeter (cm)?

A centimeter is a unit of length within The International System of Units (SI) that represents one hundredth (1/100) of a meter. This means a centimeter is equal to 0.01 of a meter. The prefix ‘centi’ itself means one hundredth. The cm is a unit of measurement in the Metric System of Measurement.

Centimeters, or also commonly spelled centimetres, are mainly used in science and medicine since SI units are the standardized form of measurements.

Metric rulers are measured in SI units, and they usually have around 30 centimeters which are shown as large tick marks. To get a visual understanding of how long 1cm is, you can imagine 1 cm as the length of a staple, the thickness of a standard pencil, or the radius (half the diameter) of a US penny.

Centimeter can be abbreviated as “cm.” For instance, 1 centimeter can also be written as 1 cm.

### What is a Millimeter (mm)?

A Millimeter (also spelled Millimetre) is a small base unit of length or distance in the Metric System of Measurement and the Standard Units of Measurement (SI).

A millimeter is equal to one thousandth of a meter or ten centimeters. They are often the smallest unit of measurement on the common ruler.

The millimeter and the centimeter are both derived from the base length unit of the meter.

The abbreviation for a millimeter is “mm”. For instance, 1 millimeters can be written as 1 mm.
