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.
