A length converter is a measurement tool that is designed to convert units of length based on metric and imperial measurement scales. It gives you measurements in 5 different units of length.

Here is the list of measurement units in which our length converter gives measurements:

imperial units of measure

Millimeter (mm)

Centimeter (cm)

Meter (m)

Kilometer (km)

Metric units of measure

Inch (in)

Foot (ft)

How to use the length converter?

If you want to convert any of the length units to another length unit, this converter is exactly what you need.

To use this, all you have to do is input the converter by selecting the unit of measure you want to convert to and then putting the length in digits into the converter.

Method

STEP 1: Select the unit of length (to be converted)

STEP 2: Indicate the numerical value of the length (to be converted)

STEP 3: Press SEARCH

Result (converted value)

After getting the input, the length converter will convert the length measurement to 5 different length units.

Below the input box and the Find button, you can see six different boxes containing 6 units of length (centimeter, meter, foot, inch, kilometer, and millimeter), respectively. The converter will give you results based on the given input that you will be able to see in those six boxes, respectively.

For example, if you want to convert 34 inches to any of the other length units (centimeter, meter, foot, kilometer, or millimeter), all you need to do is select inches in the length unit box, add the numeric value of the length “34” in the converter and then press Search to see the results. The converter will convert 34 inches to 5 different length units like:

What units of length can you convert?

This converter has been designed to convert any of the length units to the other length units according to your needs.

You can convert:

Inches to Meters / Meter to Inches

Centimeters to Inches / Inches to Centimeters

Feet to Inches / Inches to Feet

Meter to Kilometer / Meter to Kilometer

Meter to Millimeter / Millimeter to Meter

Millimeter / Kilometer / Kilometer / Millimeter

In short, you can convert them to each other using this converter. For example, you can convert cm to inches, meters, feet, millimeters, kilometers, or vice versa.

Or, you can convert meters to feet, cm to feet, inches to cm, meters to inches, m to feet, feet to inches, or vice versa, respectively.

Length measurement scales: imperial and metric unit system

Both the imperial and metric systems are systems of units of measurement for length. In these measurement scales, we can measure the length of all kinds of objects, entities or materials. This converter is basically designed to convert these measurement length units according to your requirements

Metric unit system

The metric system of length units includes units of millimeters (mm), centimeters (cm), meters (m), and kilometers (km) to measure the length of any object. The smallest unit of metric length units is the millimeter. While the kilometer can be referred to as the largest unit of length in the metric unit system.

Let’s explore all the metric length units one by one.

What is millimeter?

A millimeter is a unit of length that can be marked as one thousandth of a meter, which is also a unit of length in the metric unit system.

Centimeter: definition and conversions

A centimeter can be referred to as a unit of length that is equal to one hundredth of a meter. Centimeter units are generally used to mark the length measurements of smaller objects or distances.

In other words, 1/100 of a meter is what we call a centimeter.

How many centimeters are in an inch? It’s one of the most frequently asked questions about units of measurement, so let’s find out its answer. There are 2.54 cm in an inch.

For more conversions of a centimeter, see the conversion table above.

What is a meter and the criteria to measure it?

The meter is the base unit of the metric system of length units. One meter is equal to one hundred centimeters about which we have mentioned above.

In other words, an area that occupies 100 centimeters can be measured as 1 meter in length. If you want to convert a measurement from meters to inches, inches to meter, or want to convert meters to feet or any other conversion accordingly, you can use our length converter to do it precisely.

Let’s convert 1 m to feet. If it is 1 m and you want to know what its value will be in the unit of measure of the foot, then 1 m to feet is equal to 3 feet. Also, if we convert inches to meters, then 1 inch equals 0.0254 m.

Kilometer: definition and conversions

The kilometer can be called the largest metric unit of measurement and is equal to 1,000 meters according to the international standard scale of measurements. Kilometers are often used to mark distance or displacement.

Imperial Length Units

This converter is still equipped with two imperial length units. These are inches and feet.

You can convert an inch to any of the other five length units (mm, cm, m, km, feet) using this converter or vice versa. Likewise, feet can also be converted to any of these length units or vice versa.

Inch: definition and scale of measurement

What is meant by inch? How many cm are in an inch? and how to convert cm to other units of length are issues that will be covered in this section.

An inch can be called a unit of length and is abbreviated as “in”. In both the imperial and metric measurement scales, an inch is known as a unit of length that is used to measure the length of an object. An inch is exactly equal to the size of a human thumb. However, the most accurate way to mark the value of an inch is according to the International Standard which states that one inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters.

So the answer to the question “how many centimeters are in an inch” is that according to the international standard, there are 2.54 cm in an inch.

Let’s move on to answer the last question we posed earlier. You can convert an inch to any of the length units using this length converter per the instructions given above in the methods section.

You can also refer to the Conversion Table provided above to know all about the converted values of an inch and other length units like Cm in feet

Foot: definition and measurement scale (conversion)

A foot is an imperial unit of length that is equal to 0.3048 meters. The plural form of foot is known as feet. You can convert foot to any other unit of measure or vice versa, respectively.

1 cm to foot is equal to 0.0328084, while 1 m to foot is equal to 3.28084 feet.
