Units for measuring length are discussed here.
We know that the standard unit of length is ‘Meter’ which is written in short as ‘m’.
A meter length is divided into 100 equal parts.
Each part is named centimeter and written in short as ‘cm’.
Thus, 1 m = 100 cm and 100 cm = 1 m
The long distances are measured in kilometer. This kilometer equals to 1000 meters. The kilometer is written in short as km.
1 kilometer (km) = 1000 meters (m) and 1000 m = 1 km
The different units of length and their equivalents are given here:
1 kilometer (km)
= 10 Hectometers (hm) = 1000 m
= 10 Metres (m)
= 10 Millimetres (mm)
Mostly we use Kilometer (km), Meter (m) and Centimeter (cm) as the units of length.
