## What are millimeters? Metric system conversion

Millimeters are the 1000th part of a meter. It is normally used to express the distance between two points or measure an object's length. For changing millimeters to meters, we use the next conversion factor:

1 millimeter = 1 / 1000 meters = 0.001 m

Besides, the meter is defined as the distance of the path traveled by light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second.

Now, if we remember that 100 centimeters are 1 meter, then if we divide it by 1000:

1 / 1000 m = 100 / 1000 cm
1 millimeter = 0.1 cm

Also, if 1000 meters are 1 kilometer, then:

1 m × 1000 = 1000 mm × 1000
1 km = 1,000,000 mm

## How to convert millimeters to inches?

Our millimeter calculator has the feature to convert millimeters to several imperial system metrics. One of them is the inch. The inch definition is:

1 inch = 2.54 cm.

So, if we know that 1 cm equals 10 mm, how many millimeters are in an inch? Quite easy:

1 inch = 2.54 cm × 10 = 25.4 mm.

Our millimeters calculator can also help you determine millimeter value expressed in yards, feet, and miles.
