What is a Centimeter or a Foot?
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 centimetres as spelled in the UK, 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, 172 centimeter can also be written as 172 cm.
What is a Foot (Feet)?
A foot (plural feet), is part of the Imperial units mainly used in The United States, Canada, and The United Kingdom.
Feet are used to measure heights, shorter distances, and field lengths.
A foot represents 12 inches and is typically the entire length of an Imperial System ruler. There are also 3 feet in every yard.
To help you visualize how long 1 ft is, you can picture the height of a 2 L soda bottle, a standard ruler (twelve inches), or the length of 2 US dollar bills stacked on one another.
The abbreviation for feet is “ft .”For instance, 172 foot can be written as 172 ft.
