1 centimetre: how many millimetres, metres, kilometres?
A centimetre is a unit of length derived from a metre: one of the basic units in SI (metric) system. Also, it was one of three basic units of CGS (centimetre-gram-second), the obsolete variant of the metric system.
1 centimetre = 10 millimetres = 0.01 metre = 0.00001 kilometres
ca. 2.54 centimetres = 1 inch
As it was mentioned above, a centimetre is a derivative of a metre. The prefix centi- is one of the metric prefixes (unit prefixes which modify the value of the basic unit), which means ‘divided by 100’. And so, a centimetre is 0.01 metre.
Below you will find a list of metric prefixes for other units derived from a metre:
|101 m||decametre||10-1 m||decimetre|
|102 m||hectometre||10-2 m||centimetre|
|103 m||kilometre||10-3 m||millimetre|
|106 m||megametre||10-6 m||micrometre|
|109 m||gigametre||10-9 m||nanometre|
|1012 m||terametre||10-12 m||picometre|
|1015 m||petametre||10-15 m||femtometre|
|1018 m||exametre||10-18 m||attometre|
|1021 m||zettametre||10-21 m||zeptometre|
|1024 m||yottametre||10-24 m||yocometre|

Centimetres are used for measuring rainfall. Meteorologists use a cylindrical instrument called a rain gauge to catch rain water and, after some time, they measure the height of the accumulated water. The reading of the results is typically done in centimetres.
