# Tables for Metric Measuring

Updated November 17, 2020 | Infoplease Staff

### Linear Measure

 10 millimeters (mm) = 1 centimeter (cm) 10 centimeters = 1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters 10 decimeters = 1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters 10 meters = 1 dekameter (dam) 10 dekameters = 1 hectometer (hm) = 100 meters 10 hectometers = 1 kilometer (km) = 1,000 meters

### Area Measure

 100 square millimeters (mm2) = 1 sq centimeter (cm2) 10,000 square centimeters = 1 sq meter (m2) = 1,000,000 sq millimeters 100 square meters = 1 are (a) 100 ares = 1 hectare (ha) = 10,000 sq meters 100 hectares = 1 sq kilometer (km2) = 1,000,000 sq meters

### Volume Measure

 10 milliliters (ml) = 1 centiliter (cl) 10 centiliters = 1 deciliter (dl) = 100 milliliters 10 deciliters = 1 liter (l) = 1,000 milliliters 10 liters = 1 dekaliter (dal) 10 dekaliters = 1 hectoliter (hl) = 100 liters 10 hectoliters = 1 kiloliter (kl) = 1,000 liters

### Cubic Measure

 1,000 cubic millimeters (mm3) = 1 cu centimeter (cm3) 1,000 cubic centimeters = 1 cu decimeter (dm3) = 1,000,000 cu millimeters 1,000 cubic decimeters = 1 cu meter (m3) = 1 stere = 1,000,000 cu centimeters = 1,000,000,000 cu millimeters
