What is a Centimetre?

A millimetre is a unit of length n the metric system. It is used to calculate the width, length, and height of an object. According to the SI Unit of length, one centimetre is equal to 10 millimetres and 1 metre is equal to 100 centimetres. The abbreviation for centimetre is “cm”.

1cm = 10 mm

Millimetre to Centimetre conversion formula

You can convert millimetres to centimetres and vice-versa, in a very few simple steps using Wiingy’s conversion calculator. Let’s understand how to convert millimeters to centimeters.

Since, 1cm = 10mm, in order to convert millimetres to centimetres, we need to divide the given number by 10. For example,

Let’s convert 20 millimetres to centimetres.

20/10= 2
Therefore, 20mm = 2cm.

1/10 = 0.1
Hence, 1mm = 0.1cm 

What is the millimeter to centimeter conversion formula?
To convert millimetre to centimetre follow the steps given below:
1 cm = 10mm
1 mm = 0.1 cm
Now, to convert a value from millimetre to centimetre, simply divide the number by 10.
For example,
2 mm =? cm
2/10 = 0.2
Hence, 2 mm = 0.2 cm

Convert 10 mm to centimetres.
To convert 10 mm to centimetres, simply divide 10 by 10.
Therefore, 10/10 = 1
Hence, 10mm = 1cm.

Which is bigger, 1cm or 1mm?
1cm = 10 mm and 1mm = 0.1cm.
So, 1cm is bigger than 1mm.

Convert 5 mm to centimetres.
To convert 5mm to centimetres, simply divide 5 by 10.
Therefore, 5/10 = 0.5
Hence, 5mm= 0.5cm.

Is a centimetre bigger than a millimetre?
The millimetre is 10 times smaller than a centimetre. So, yes the centimetre is bigger than a millimetre.
1cm = 10 mm and 1mm = 0.1cm.

What is the formula for converting mm to cm?
Since, 1cm = 10mm, in order to convert millimetres to centimetres, we need to divide the given number by 10. For example,
Let’s convert 5 millimetres to centimetres.
5/10= 0.5
Therefore, 5 mm = 0.5 cm.

Convert 2 mm to cm.
