LENGTH UNIT CONVERSION CALCULATOR | CIVIL UNIT CONVERSION CALCULATOR

Unit conversion is a multi-step process that involves multiplying or dividing by a numerical factor, choosing the correct number of significant digits, and rounding.

The Conversion in length between different scales is described by moving the decimal point the correct number of places.

Metric measurement system

The basic metric units are picometers (pm), nanometers (nm), micrometres (Î¼m), millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), and decimeters (dm), meters (m), kilometres (km) (for length).

Converting metric units of length:

1 mm = 0.1 cm = 0.001 m = 0.000001 km.

1 cm = 10 mm = 0.01 m = 0.00001 km.

1 m = 1,000 mm = 100 cm = 0.001 km.

1 km = 1,000,000 mm = 100,000 cm = 1,000 m.

Imperial / US measurement system

The basic imperial units are the inch, the mile and the pound (for length).
