Info about "Meter"

Meter is a basic unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and other metric systems. All other units of length in the metric system are derived from the meter (e.g. 1 km = 1.000 m, 1m = 1.000 mm).

The meter was defined in 1799 based on measurements taken at the time as the ten millionth part of the distance from the North Pole to the equator. For this purpose, a so-called prototype meter was casted in platinum. Since 1983, the meter has been defined as the distance travelled by light in 1/299,792,458 seconds in a vacuum.

Info about "Centimeter"

The centimeter unit is part of a metric system and is derived from the basic unit meter. 1 centimeter is equivalent to 0.01 meters or 1 meter is equivalent to 100 centimeters. The prefix "Zenti" in centimeters stands for one hundredth of the base unit. The centimeter belongs to the International System of Units (SI).
