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)?

**(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 × 100→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

cm = m ÷ 0.01→ 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 × 100 = 400 cm

cm = 4 m ÷ 0.01 = 400 cm

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

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from meters to centimeters is needed, here is a meters-to-centimeters conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in meters and their equivalent measurement values in centimeters. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.

**What is a meter (m)?**

Definition of meter: The meter is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system. A meter is defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 seconds. It is widely used globally as the standard unit for measuring length.

The abbreviation for meter is m.

**What is a centimeter (cm)?**

Definition of centimeter: A centimeter is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), commonly known as the metric system. It is equal to one hundredth of a meter (10^-2 m). It is often used for everyday measurements involving shorter distances than meters, such as human height.

The abbreviation for centimeter is cm. The single Unicode character ㎝ (U+339D) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for centimeter. The Windows Alt code for this character ㎝ is Alt + 13213.
