## FAQ

### How to turn 1 cm2 to mm2?

It's easier than you think! We need to remember than 1 linear centimeter houses exactly 10 linear millimeters.

1 cm = 10 mm

If we want to know the number of squared millimeters, we need to square both sides of the equation.
(1 cm)² = (10 mm)²

1 cm² = 10 × 10 mm²

1 cm² = 100 mm²

### How many cm2 are in mm2?

Just as you remember, all metric units of distance are a multiple of 10 - neither square centimeters nor square millimeters are an exception here.

1 mm² = 0.01 cm²

while

100 mm² = 1 cm²
