## Conversion to other units of length

The measurement of lengths and distances is a fundamental aspect in many scientific and technical fields. Millimeters are a frequently used unit of measurement. In this article, we take a look at how millimetres can be converted into other units.

**1. millimeters to centimeters**

One centimeter (cm) is equal to 10 millimeters.

Conversion formula: mm / 10 = cm

*Example:*

- 20 mm = 2 cm
- 75 mm = 7.5 cm

**2. millimeters to decimeters**

One decimeter (dm) corresponds to 100 millimeters.

Conversion formula: mm / 100 = $dm$

*Example:*

- 200 mm = 2 dm
- 350 mm = 3.5 dm

**3. millimeters in meters**

One meter (m) corresponds to 1,000 millimeters.

Conversion formula: mm / 1.000 = m

*Example:*

- 1,000 mm = 1 m
- 2,500 mm = 2.5 m

**4. millimeters to kilometers**

One kilometer (km) corresponds to 1,000,000 millimeters.

Conversion formula: mm / 1,000,000 = km

*Example:*

- 1,000,000 mm = 1 km
- 5,000,000 mm = 5 km

**5. millimeters in inches**

One inch corresponds to approximately 25.4 millimeters.

Conversion formula: mm / 25.4 = inch (inch)

*Example:*

- 25.4 mm = 1 inch
- 50.8 mm = 2 inches

## Conclusion

The conversion of millimetres into other units is a fundamental tool in many specialist areas. Whether in science, crafts or everyday life, understanding the different units of measurement and their conversions can be useful in many situations. It is always helpful to have a good sense of scale and to know how to convert from one unit to another.
