The symbol for centimeter is cm. There are centimeters in a meter. The International spelling for this unit is centimetre. A meter is a unit of Length or Distance in the Metric System. The symbol for meter is m. The International spelling for this unit is metre.

Let's take a closer look at the conversion formula so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper. Next, let's look at an example showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from centimeters to meters cm to m. For quick reference purposes, below is a conversion table that you can use to convert from cm to m. This table provides a summary of the Length or Distance units within their respective measurement systems.

Conversion Definitions The following is a list of definitions relating to conversions between centimeters and meters.

What is a centimeter cm? What is a meter m? Conversion Formula Let's take a closer look at the conversion formula so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

You can poke them into the clay to keep them in a neat row. Write this measurement down. Make sure that the metric measuring glass has exactly ml of water in it check by looking at the bottom of the meniscus. What is the new water level of the glass? Divide this number by For the "Outer Radius" box, enter the long radius; for the "Inner Radius" box, enter zero; and for the "Height" box, enter the short diameter.

For the "Major Axis" and "Minor Axis" boxes, enter the long diameter for both. And for the "Vertical Axis" box, enter the short diameter. Which ones were more and which ones were less? Which calculation came the closest? Another way to look at your data is to calculate the percent difference between each calculation and the actual volume measurement. You can do this by dividing your answer using each formula by the actual volume.

Which formulas give you an answer that is closest to, or most different from, the actual volume based on percent difference? You can use this same experiment to find the best formula to calculate any other volume. Try using it for an egg, a football, an apple, a bar of soap, other types of candies or any other irregularly shaped object. Just make sure that you choose an object that can be safely submerged in water!

Which formula is the best? The shape of a candy can affect how well many of those candies pack together. Use the water displacement test on a couple differently shaped candies to determine the actual volume of a single candy. Then fill a measuring glass with a certain amount of each type of candy, one type at a time without water.

Divide the volume the candy took up by the number of candies to determine how much space one candy took up, on average, when taking packing into account. How much space does each type of candy take up in the measuring glass when packing is taken into account compared with the actual volume of one candy? In other words, which types of candies pack together the best?

Flatten it and stretch it out into a line about 20 centimeters (cm) long by three cm wide. The line should be only a couple cm high. You will be measuring the M&Ms on this.
