Units of length conversion charts are discussed here in metric units of length and customary units of length:
In math when we use length, we know that the standard unit of length is ‘Metre’ which is written in short as ‘m’.
A metre length is divided into 100 equal parts. Each part is named centimetre and written in short as ‘cm’. Thus, 1 m = 100 cm and 100 cm = 1 m
The long distances are measured in kilometre. This kilometre equals to 1000 metres. The kilometre is written in short as km.
1 kilometre (km) = 1000 metres (m)
Or
1 km = 1000 m
The different units of length conversion charts and their equivalents are given here:
1 kilometre (km) = 10 Hectometres (hm) = 1000 m
1 Hectometre (hm) = 10 Decametres (dcm) = 100 m
1 Decametre (dcm) = 10 Metres (m)
1 Metre (m) = 10 Decimetres (dm) = 100 cm = 1000 mm
1 Decimetre (dm) = 10 Centimetres (cm)
1 decimeter = 0.1 meter
1 Centimetre (cm) = 10 Millimetres (mm)
1 centimeter = 0.01 meter
1 millimeter = 0.001 meter
Mostly we use Kilometre (km), Metre (m) and Centimetre (cm) as the units of length measurement or unit of length conversion chart.
In customary units of length are discussed her in the units of length conversion table:
1 mile = 1760 yards
1 mile = 5280 feet
1 yard = 3 feet
1 foot = 12 inches
Solved Examples on Conversion of Units - Length
1. Convert 0.56 m in cm.
Solution:
We know that 1 m = 100 cm
0.56 = 0.56 × 100 cm
= 56 cm
2. Convert 4 m 19 cm into m
Solution:
4 m 19 cm = 4 m + 19 cm
= 4 m + \(\frac{19}{100}\) m
= 4 m + 0.19 m
= 4.19 m
3. Convert 16 km 750 m into km
Solution:
16 km 750 m = 16 km + 750 m
= 16 km + \(\frac{750}{1000}\) km
= 16 km + 0.75 km
= 16.75 km
4. The length of a square tile is 125 cm. What will be the length of the tile strip in millimeters if 10 tiles are kept in a line?
Solution:
The length of a square tile = 125 cm
125 cm = 125 × 10 mm
= 1250 mm
The length of 10 square tiles = 12500 mm
