### What is Meant by Meters to Centimeters Conversion?

According to the most developed definition, the length of the path traveled by light in vacuum during a time interval with a span of 1/299,792,458 of a second is called the meter. Now, 100 centimeters equal to 1 meter or one centimeter equal to one-hundredth (i.e. 1/100 th) of meter. Meters are denoted by m, whereas centimeters are denoted by cm.

Both units meter and centimeters are used in the International System of Units, and a centimeter is considered as the current form of the metric system. Both the units have a wide range of applications, which help to measure the length, height, or width of the objects.

Thus, the relationship between the meter and centimeter is written as follows:

1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm)

Or, it can be written as

1 cm = 0.01 m

## How to Convert Meter to cm?

To convert the meter to cm, multiply the given meter value by 100 cm.

For example, to convert 5 meters to cm, multiply 5 by 100 cm.

5 meters = 5 x 100

5 m = 500 cm

Hencem 5 meters is equal to 500 cm.

### Meter to Centimeters Examples

Example 1:

Convert 0.05 meter to cm.

Solution:

We know that one meter is equal to 100 centimeters

Therefore,

0.05 m  = 0.05 x 100 cm

0.05 m = 5 cm

Hence, 0.05 m is equal to 5 centimeters.

Example 2:

What is the value of 76 meters to cm?

Solution:

To find: 76 meters to cm.

We know that 1 m = 100 cm

Thus, 76 m = 76 x100 cm

76 m = 7600 cm.

Hence, the equivalent value of 76 m is 7600 cm.

Example 3:

Convert 0.89 meters to cm.

Solution:

As 1 meter = 100 cm

0.89 m = 0.89 x 100 cm

0.89 m = 89 cm.

Therefore, 0.89 m is equal to 89 centimeters.
