Meter  Unit of Distance / LengthUnit Symbol / Abbreviation: m Where the unit used in the World: The meter is used as a unit to measure medium distances or lengths. Definition of the Unit: The meter (metre in UK spelling) is a unit of length/distance in the metric system (SI Unit system) equivalent to the length of the path travelled by light during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second (in vacuum, defined since 1983). 1 m is equivalent to 3.28084 ft or 0.000621371 miles. History of the Unit: As a result of the French Revolution in 1789, the old units of measure that were associated with the monarchy were replaced by the new units. The new unit of length was introduced which became known as the meter. In 1795 the meter was defined as 1/10,000,000 part of the quarter of a meridian, passing through Paris. The meter gained popularity in continental Europe during the nineteenth century, particularly in scientific field, and was officially adopted as an international measurement unit in 1875. In 1960 the meter was defined as 1,650,763.73 wavelengths of light from a specified transition in krypton86. In 1983 the final definition of meter was accepted as length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second. Where it's used: The meter is commonly used in different trades and industries (for examle in machinery manufacturing), on road signs to indicate vehicle hight limits, the distance to short travel to a given location (for example in automotive GPS navigation voice prompts), on maps to indicate small scale, for vehicle, vessels and aircragt dimensions in industry and trade. It is also the most popular unit for describing the retail estate distances and measurements (room sizes, floor measurements and so on). Equivalents in other units and scales:
1 m is equivalent to 3.28084 ft or 1.09361 yd. Millimeter: A Unit of LengthDefinition of the millimeterA millimeter is a unit of length in the metric system, which is based on the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as one thousandth of a meter, which is the SI base unit of length. One millimeter can be written as 1 mm or 0.001 m. How to convert millimeter to other units of lengthTo convert millimeter to other units of length, we need to use conversion factors that relate the millimeter to the desired unit. For example, to convert millimeter to centimeter, we need to know that 1 cm = 10 mm, so we can divide the number of millimeters by 10 to get the number of centimeters. Similarly, to convert millimeter to inch, we need to know that 1 in = 25.4 mm, so we can divide the number of millimeters by 25.4 to get the number of inches. Here are some common conversion factors for millimeter and other units of length in the US standard system and the SI system:
Where millimeter is usedThe millimeter is a widely used unit of length in many fields and applications around the world. Some examples are:
History of millimeterThe millimeter has a long and varied history in different countries and cultures. Some historical facts are:
