There are **
100 centimeters** in a meter.

In the metric system everything is done in multiples of 10.

1 kilometer= 1000 meters

1 hectometer = 100 meters

1 diameter= 10 meters

1 decimeter = 1⁄10 of a meter

1 centimeter = 1⁄100 of a meter

1 millimeter = 1⁄1000 of a meter

1 micrometer = 1⁄1000000 of a meter

1 nanometer = 1⁄1000000000 of a meter
