Meters (m) to Centimeters (cm) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in meters (m) and converts it to its equivalent value in centimeters (cm).

How many meters (m) are in a centimeter (cm)? What is the formula for how to convert meters to centimeters (m to cm)?

1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm)
So we can say that there is 100 centimeters in 1 meter.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement is 100.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 centimeter (cm) = 0.01 meter (m)
So we can say that there is 0.01 meter in 1 centimeter.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement is 0.01.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in meters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in centimeters (m to cm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

cm = m ร— 100 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

cm = m รท 0.01 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 4 meters that you want to convert to centimeters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

cm = 4 m ร— 100 = 400 cm
cm = 4 m รท 0.01 = 400 cm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 400 centimeters.
